Amazing to see what Mother Nature can create in the sky all at one time. Here a spreading contrail rising up through altocumulus puffs is illuminated by the sun and shimmering like ice. Gone in minutes … but remembered.
A Rare Feathery Treat
This Circumhorizon arc floating in Uncinus and Cirrus greeted me on my balcony. In a flash it was gone. But what a treat to see! This will be on my favorite capture list for a long time.
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.
Up Close and Personal
I never met a cloud I didn’t want to spend more time with. Fascinating creatures. Window seat FL to OR.
In Plane View
A six hour flight of non-stop sky delight! Alaska airlines Orlando to PDX.
Even under cloudy skies, the petals are vibrant.
Strait of Juan de Fuca
I never tire of the endless variations of sky and sea.
Victoria, BC is always good for a little taste of London. A bit of formality can help balance the chaos.
A light mist in the air following heavy rain creates a watercolor look to the fall trees. A city street becomes a Monet!
