The dramatic placement of the low horizon line and the solitary tree beautifully emphasize the breathtaking clouded sky !

Hi Ian, great image I love the sky very dramatic. I visited Malham recently it has loads of opportunity for great images. Sadly it also reminds me that on my recent visit I found my Big Stopper was smashed into little pieces :-( . Here is my results without the Big Stopper.
