Sure Colorado has beautiful clouds at sunrise and sunset but there is more to be seen. During other times of the day clouds can catch your eye with their beauty.

 Feature photography is one of my most favorite things to shoot. It's basically a, real, found situation that holds the viewers attention. When I worked for a newspaper I would go out and drive around, just looking for anything that caught my eye. Parks are good for this! Many times nice features are found at all kind of events. The key here is to be ready to shot! Just like most other types of photojournalism, the opportunity doesn't last long.

Colorado Sunrises and Sunsets.

 Before I go out to shoot sunrises or sunsets, I check the weather at >www.underground.com<. What I'm looking for is the percentage of cloud cover at those times at my desired location. I like it when the coverage is between 50 and 80%. The only other tip I have is to take you light reading from the highlights of your scene.
