Hi, Linda,
Don't get all wrapped up in sackcloth and ashes about that deep blue cloudless sky! It's but one compositional component in a well composed landscape that benefits from symmetry, the slight tension of the just off-center subject peak, and a subtle detail-free dark foreground.
in all, a landscape that "works"

Dave

I can feel the mountain calling and am better for it! S-
