All clouds by nature are fleeting and the Pileus most of all. Spotting this smooth puff was a rare, wondrous moment. Similar in shape to Lenticularis and cap clouds, Pileus briefly appear atop billowy Cumulus. Another cloud captured in the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
The sky can be so full of fun!
No matter the shade or season, clouds take my breath away. Yesterday provided an exceptionally diverse show from my balcony. Shown here, powerful Cumulonimbus before the afternoon rain. SW Portland.
One hour later, a shape shifting blended wonder. Same balcony. Same awe. I especially enjoyed this combo of clouds. Altocumulus, Cumulonimbus – puffs and waves, ripples and wisps.
I never met a cloud I didn’t want to spend more time with. Fascinating creatures. Window seat FL to OR.
A six hour flight of non-stop sky delight! Alaska airlines Orlando to PDX.
Palm trees and billowing cumulus create a stunning scene. An oil painting that won’t melt even in the 95° heat. Winter Springs FL.
36k feet and heading towards dawn!
It’s easy to see why the immenseness of the sky has been an inspiration for artists and poets, inventors and explorers since the first human looked up. (Evening sky in Seattle.)
Ahhh … the day begins with beauty. View from deck looking out over Lake Washington.
There’s something about watching the sun break through the clouds that restores peace. Like being in a chapel.
The color and feel of this photo reminds me of the French landscapes by Corot.
