As we traveled from Trona to Death Valley, I saw this sky developing.  The problem was finding a foreground worthy of putting with it.   We drove for a few miles and I finally decided that the foreground was not near as important as the sky.  The sky was the subject.  As such I filled the frame with it and let the small strip of land give it a base.  Oft times I’ll find myself suggesting this concept to those on a workshop.  Ask yourself, what is the subject and if it is the sky, make it so.  Sure it would have been nice to have an old abandoned building, rusted car or some other great subject to put with the great sky, but I’m okay with this just the way it is.
