Capturing and creating your own sky textures can be both fun and challenging. You have to consider a lot of things like cloud movement, position of the sun, shutter speed and f-stop combination, etc. And while summer is the perfect season to go out there, enjoy the sun and shoot pretty sky landscapes and graceful clouds, most of the time, the weather will not cooperate. So I thought about sharing with you some super high-resolution sky textures, package of 10 sky texture images bundled with 15 lens flare courtesy of our friends from Sky-textures.com, which you can instantly use for your projects.

Now you will ask. How do I use these lens flare?
First, open your sky texture image file in Adobe Photoshop.
Then, open your lens flare file and place it on top of you sky texture image layer.
At this point, the sky texture image is totally covered with lens flare image. To apply the lens flare effect, open the Layer Palette, select the Lens Flare layer and set the Blending Mode to “Screen” (see our sample layer palette screenshot below).
