This is one of the most active sky captures I have seen so far! I love how there's so much action "over there", as if the clouds are moving really, really fast.

So beautiful. I love the wispy clouds that appear to float below the others. Very nice colors too.

The sky does look like it is been sucked away. Your canon can capture any image perfectly.

I see my spaceship left without me. So I'll be here a while.

Gives me more time to admire your photography.
