You can get some nice cloud effects at the end of a warm sunny day.

Please excuse any noise which is probably my fault rather than the prime lens.

I think it will be much more dramatic if you have something to make a contrast to; ie land or a building.

@Xerophytes: I agree. In fact, I was in my back garden messing around with my tripod and trying to take multiple shots for image blending. I was taking shots of the back of my house. A also took a few shots of the clouds as I wanted to experiment with different shutter speeds to see how this impacted the image. As it turned out the shots of my house did not work out (due to camera movement when changing the shutter speed) and the cloud test shots were much better!

Nice big fluffy clouds with cracking tones..

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Just goes to show what you can do when you are not concentrating. I planned other shots in detail on the evening and all of them were rubbish!
The tones are due to high contrast applied in post processing.

Beautiful! If you want them to be more dramatic play with contrast and saturation in your photoshop program. I always tweek mine and I get some good results that way :)
