Awesome! Thanks y'all for submitting a wonderful selection of stunning images!
I very much enjoyed seeing them, and selecting favorites was fun, but challenging... so many deserve to win!

I have matters pressing my time right now, so, I do apologize for not posting extended comments...
which are not really needed this time anyway, as this subject and these images speak for themselves... as in WoW!!

Honorable Mentions

grandmaR ~ 3. Sydney Floating on the Clouds - I like the almost abstract quality here grandmaR.

Tatiana ~ 1. Above the Clouds - Great all-sky airplane shot.. I like this pov... except for the flying part ;-)

Sherry ~ 1. Texas Skies - I love the color gradation and simplicity of the windmill image.

Phil ~ All three of your shots so nicely show those amazing prairie skies!

Pieter ~ 2. Beams - I like the almost monochrome look here... in a sunset no-less!

Third Place ~ Sara 3. Sunset silhouettes, Christmas Day 2015, Munich

I remember this image and I still love it... fantastic composition and human interest!

Second Place ~ Gretchen 2. Fishing

Awesome sky, but the whole scene is wonderful, and the fisher-person adds so much!

First Place ~ Jeromy 1. NIGHT IN NEW MEXICO!

Astrophotography is one of my faves, so, I love the stars and galaxy! I can feel the stillness and solitude... love this one Jeromy!

Thanks again everyone, for a very cool Mini Challenge!

    Wow! I wasn't expecting that! SO many great images!
    Thank you! That was a scary shot to take. I was all alone in the middle of nowhere and it was a lot darker than it looks :) Talk about your imagination running wild!!

    Ill post the new challenge this afternoon!

    Thanks again! I really enjoyed getting to see all the great images!
    Light is everything in life and photography.
