This blog post is brought to you by idea that empty space in a photograph is okay. Occasionally I remind myself to keep the composition simple and not include too many elements. In this case, instead of leaving only 1/3 of the upper part of the image for the sky, the ratio is flipped. The eyes will see the obvious (sky) and then inspect the hills for the tree silhouettes and the layers themselves. At least that is my thought process for this composition.
