Sky 130 - happy movie skies

In contrast to the HP 7.1 skies, are the skies of "Nottinghill" or the lack of skies. It is a very bright movie and sunny skies are implied more than seen. Here are a couple.
The sky over the Ritz as William goes to meet Anna Scott, the famous actress.

Anna is troubled and goes to see Will. Things are uncertain. One of the few cloudy skies in the movie.
My favorite sequence is watching six months of weather compressed into two minutes as Will walks through Nottinghill. There is fall rain followed by winter snow, followed by spring blooming. Skies implied, not seen. From dark to light as Will gets through the time without Anna.

My theory is that expansive sky is for mood movies. Perhaps I'll discuss some of that here. Let's see how it goes.
