The movement of light following the clouds is an artform in itself, one of the reasons why I enjoy viewing your long exposures.

@Curly: Hi Curly, I really enjoy doing long exposure landscape photos - partly it's because I'm never really sure what I'll get, particularly when it's windy and the clouds are moving quickly.
