What is it about mountains, even little ones like the Apennines, that makes skies so dramatic? The sky around Godzilla changes constantly due to our position near the crest of the mountain ridge. As breezes through the valley bring the sea air up from the coast and over the top, they create some very painterly effects and wonderful light.

While it’s always a delight to bask under a clear blue, sunny sky, the special ones, to my eye, are the ones with clouds.
