Dark Sky, Bright Woods
I love when the sun lights the foreground landscape - but not the background. The frame capture has relatively dark clouds in the background, but the early spring woods is getting a greater share of light. To get conditions like these typically requires you to spend a lot of time in an area or at a scene. Nothing beats living there. Please - Don't tell your spouse that I recommended you move.
