Sky Chasing

I've recently been obsessed with chasing the sky at beautiful times of day. I really can't explain it, but it's the only thing I've wanted to photograph/film for the past two weeks. I think it's just one of those things where I've been so caught up with finals, that the sky seems so peaceful and relaxing. I've never been one to want to wake up at sunrise, but for some reason I found myself awake at 5 AM almost every morning aching to go out and shoot. 

It's funny, because during my first photo class ever, my teacher told me to never photograph the sunset. "The sunset," he would say, "is a cliché thing to photograph, so just don't do it." So, I told myself I would never photograph the sunset. Here I am, however many years later, finding myself just wanting to photograph the gorgeous sky. To get myself over this statement, I told myself that the sunrise was different from the sunset, so therefore it was not cliché. Then, I realized I just wanted to photograph the sky regardless of it being "cliché" or not.
