I spend a lot of time looking at the sky. I'm constantly looking up and judging how good or bad the clouds are, regardless of whether I'm photographing or not. I even have a room in my house painted the color of a cloudy sky. So, needless to say, the sky is an important element in my photographs. I wasn't sure what to expect from the sky in Iceland before I got there, but it certainly did not disappoint. The constantly changing weather, coupled with the varying landscapes, resulted in some really incredible skies, such as this one from a playground in a small town along a fjord in East Iceland.
