Please view this image on my website where it will display against a dark background at it's intended resolution and sharpness.

Sunlight slices rays of bright sunlight against the dark depths of Blyde River Canyon

This image is the perfect example of an important compositional lesson in landscapes that I always teach to clients. If there is not much interest in the sky then you don't need anything more than a sliver of sky to give the image a 'ceiling'. Interest doesn't necessarily refer to clouds as you often get great colour gradients even without clouds.
