    Clouds

    This link to earthsky shows some beautiful high polar stratosphere clouds: http://earthsky.org/earth/wow-polar-...spheric-clouds

    We had some like this, though not quite as dramatic, that could be seen from home.

    Anyone in the Cloud Appreciation Society?

    The 1967 song "Both Sides Now" by Judy Collins is still one of my favourites, clouds being one of the subjects, the other being love.

    I am not a member of the Cloud Appreciation Society, but I am looking forward to what you will post in your new thread.

    I didn't intend this to be more than one post, YesNo. But if others contribute it may well develop that way.

    I also am not a member of the Cloud Appreciation Society.

    I've never heard of the Cloud Appreciation Society, but I certainly do appreciate them, and also John Constable's cloud studies.




    And I do like to photograph clouds...

    Lol! A cloud dialogue (very modestly on my part). I specially like the last one.

    These are odd, neither jet trails nor the play of light.

    We have just had the spring equinox, and this time of the year we have high cirrus clouds and temps in the low plus degrees. The cirrus clouds show up at dawn and dusk very well, changing colour as the sun rises and sets. Today it is quite warm, nice for a short walk.

    There is now an online cloud atlas: http://www.livescience.com/58381-new...nal-atlas.html.

    See this, for example: An undulating asperitas cloud.

    Beautiful images! Never heard about that kind of cloud grouping. I noticed that several of this images where taken in Rio de Janeiro.
