The higher level version of landscapes. This is about huge, dramatic skies, or small delicate cloud formations. You can put small strip of land or sea at the bottom of the picture, but the primary subject must be the sky. And to level the playing field for compact users, we're limiting the focal lengths allowable; nothing wider than 28mm or longer than 105mm (35mm equivalent).

These are ice crystal halos. We had a cold snap and the whole city seemed to bathe in the light of these pillars. The air was filled with millions and millions of tiny little ice crystals.
