Capturing light is the very essence of photography. Working in black and white or colour, photographers are always particularly sensitive to the sky.
The landscape can appear trite and dreary, then in one second, it begins to take shape, and fi nally, thanks to a cloud, a storm or a ray of sunlight, the photographer's eye fi nds what it is looking for.
Whether strokes of luck or the result of infi nite patience, the images in this selection stand out for a distinctive quality of light and sky that inspire the photographer and transfi gure the landscape.
