Photographing dramatic skies or light conditions is one of the easiest ways of getting powerful and beautiful image. You just press shutter button, apply a bit of post-processing and you’re done 🙂 the only difficult thing is to actually come across such conditions. A lot of patience and a bit of luck is required.
