    a walk around with the 17mm pancake makes it clear what a good landscape lens this is ... I like it with a CPOL on the front, as in all of these ... I described it in a mu-43 thread as a "watercolourist's lens" ... hehehe ... anyway, the skies and landscapes were so lovely today that I suddenly had a hankering for a properly wide lens - the 12mm Voigtlander or even the 9-18mm Olympus, because I just couldn't get enough into the frame ... barely any PP in this lot, just denoise, autotone and a light sharpen ...

    Open to all - please add your skyscapes!

    Wonderful clouds, pdh! Is that "my" vale, I see there? What a view.

    So is this thread open to other people's skyscapes, as well?

    Here are a couple from the S90, back when I had it...

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/20889767@N05/4733426467/" title="IMG_0328 by ramboorider1, on Flickr">[​IMG]"1024" height="626" alt="IMG_0328" /></a>

    Not strictly a sky-scape, but way more sky than anything else:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/20889767@N05/5046823051/" title="Unionville (1) by ramboorider1, on Flickr">[​IMG]"1024" height="794" alt="Unionville (1)" /></a>

    Again, way more than sky, but the sky is the strong point...

    Andy, I'm sorry but that's not a sky-scape. That's what we in the States call a forest fire! :biggrin:

    :eek: It does look like a forest fire! Nevertheless, it does fall into the skyscape category, me thinks.:tongue:

    Beautiful images in here. Until I saw Andy's latest, I was finding it very restful...which I need right now as I am still recovering from house guests and a long drive to and from picking up our daughter from college. Maybe we need a caffeinated thread? ;-)

    Thanks so much pdh, for opening this up to all!

    Christina! I love it and want to be in that place, but standing in the field not in a car zipping past. I took several photos yesterday of fields from our car trip. I'll be thrilled if any come out as well. This could be a painting. I mean that as a compliment.

    I love to shoot the ever-changing sky. It's the greatest show off earth. Here are some images to start the thread.

    PS -- Does anyone know where I can buy a powerline filter?

    Cheers, Jock
