Mini Challenge #266 - 80%+ sky
This is a quick post as I realise some people are still working and do their snapping at weekends + some / many people are in time zones behind gmt.
Imagine a horizontal line drawn across the frame 20% (of frame height)up from the bottom ... Nothing attached to the earth's surface should protrude above this - whether it's natural (eg mountains, trees, people, animals etc) or human made (wind turbines / buildings / telecoms towers etc)
No pics from aircraft - unless they have all their wheels on the ground.
No aircraft in frame either - this is about the sky - not the junk that we make, flying around in it.
No pics of 'only' sky - ie pointing cam skywards and clicking - there's got be a smidge of earth's surface - just no more than 20% of frame - can be less, btw.
Any time of day or night is fine
I'll edit this later with o ne of my ex, but to give you an idea ... imagine this guy's 'Northern lights' shot (currently 3rd pic in his photostream) to have some of its lower bit lopped off, so's none of the buildings etc protrude above the 20% line.
(to repeat, I'll edit this later, but it's decent weather here atm and I've got stuff to do ... and thx for choosing my pic, btw Pieter.)
Basically, I'm looking for pics where the sky is the main subject, hence the 20% 'rule - and as such, there should be something going on in the sky that makes you want to take a pic of it, rather than what's in the foreground, or even on the horizon.
Since I rarely take landscape pics I've not got many examples to hand to include here - but I thought many other (likely) participants would have. I was intending to use a pic from my 'birds, sunset, turbines' series - with lower bit cropped off for this mini - but since the first 4 pics posted already nicely illustrate the gig, I'm not going to bother now
(there's one example on my flickr page btw if anyone's that curious)
All the usual stuff associated with MCs ... and it'll close 1900hrs GMT Mon 28th May.
