Norfolk and Cumbria are both famous for having ‘big skies’. I’m sure there are others, but over the years, I’ve had the best summer sky shots from these two places – each one vast in its own right.

August has long been my favourite month for shooting photos of such splendour. The one above was taken near where we live, on the edge of Kendal, Cumbria.

There’s nothing remarkable about the photo, but I love how it shows the sheer scale of the cloudscape, stretching from the horizon to nearly overhead.

  1. Good shot, Steve. It’s a good time of year for the skies. I’ve noticed how the blues deepen, which lends extra contrast and drama.
