• I rarely put much sky in my landscapes (an old photographer told me 40 years ago that people always put too much sky in their landscapes)--we have had so few clouds lately, I couldn't resist capturing them above the vanishing lagoon
  • compare with lush blues and greens in three photos below--they were all enhanced a bit, but nothing could enhance those hues in this scene where the plant life on the bottom of the lagoon is poking up through the surface--smelled like a dairy farm with all the rotting vegetation

usually a full and lush lagoon on the hot Texas prairies, the hellacious drought has nearly dried up the Blue Moon Lagoon--below are scenes of the same lagoon in 2009--see adjacent pic in my stream for a close up of the lagoon

    I think the amount of sky you included was appropriate. I love cloud formations like these. I hope you guys get some rain soon.
