Clouds - 2021


Recommended Posts

There was only one of two sucker holes on the western horizon this evening. But I went out to the pond to document anything that might happen.

 

When I got out to the pond it was spitting raindrops as you can see in the water in this image. Taken with the 16-35mm at 27mm...

The yellow of the sort of post sunset. Taken with the 16-35mm at 27mm again...

This evening I checked the visual satellite and sure enough it looked socked in from me to well west of me. Figured the sunset would be a washout. walking to dinner it was wall-to-wall stratocumulus. Took my time at dinner. When I walked out I looked west as I am wont to do and lo-and-behold a sucker hole has opened up right over me. So I ran home and grabbed the camera and made a beeline for the municipal lot that is only a couple of blocks south of me instead of the mile and a half to the pond.

 

When I got out to the lot, the pre-sunset. Taken with the 24-70mm at 62mm...

A little sucker hole opened up overhead around sunset. The best images were all pointing to the east. and all were pre-sunset.

 

As the clearing was shredding the cumulus. Taken with the 16-35mm at 19mm...

When all was left was this cumulus remnant. I like the moon being the cherry on this sundae image Taken with the 16-35mm at 29mm...

Was right on the edge of two features this evening. There was a ripple (hardly big enough to call it a wave) that passed by to the north. There as also a static group of clouds from the lake breeze boundary that made it this far south. The lake boundary king of put a squash on the post sunset color. But I did get some interesting pre-sunset stuff.

 

When I got out to the pond. Taken with the 16-35mm at 35mm...

As that patch of altocumulus got more overhead and started coming apart. Taken with the 16-35mm at 25mm...

Some parhelia ( better known as Sundogs) as the Sun sank into the lake breeze boundary. Taken with the 16-35mm at 30mm...

A very busy day behind the viewfinder. Lots of photogenic clouds to image today.

 

Started off with some mid-day cirrus. Was mowing the yard and looked up and saw some nice cirrus overhead. Looking basically east. Taken with the 16-35mm at 26mm...

7V2A8059.thumb.JPG.ce03348379d1038ec9ebc0fb13b8eb92.JPG

 

 

First look at the pond for the sunset. As you can see, lots of cirrus and a smattering of altocumulus. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm...

7V2A8166.thumb.JPG.4a24ef19904f98cda2ec133168662278.JPG

 

 

Going to skip ahead to the post sunset color. Starting off with the yellow. Taken with the 24-70mm at 45mm...

Thought the sunrise this morning might be decent, so I set my alarm even though it was a day off.

 

When I got out to the Fairgrounds the cirrus was already lit up. Taken with the 16-35mm at 35mm...

7V2A8845.thumb.JPG.c07cb4d260c8fd97ef484fbe255989e5.JPG

After work I snuck a peek at the visual satellite and it looked like there might be some color. So I packed up the gear and headed to the pond.

 

I started off on the fisherman's point seeing how there were no people out drowning frogs when I got there. This is close to local sunset. Taken with the 24-70mm at 57mm...

7V2A9420.thumb.JPG.1e28c9b4417cccda4a0d94b9d4bfca7f.JPG

 

 

For the next three images I moved to the top of the mound the construction crew made. I wanted to get as much of the horizon as I could and the winds were cranking right along so there was no chance of reflection images. Starting off with the yellow of the post sunset. Taken with the 24-70mm at 63mm...

7V2A9626.thumb.JPG.6692a5634224eaf2eec505692f0dd0cd.JPG

Tonight I imaged the sunset with the 100mm exclusively. So all three images are taken with the same lens, and cropped almost identical (a little off the top and bottom). So the only difference will be in the timing as I will annotate.

 

First image is within a minute or two of local sunset, taken at 8:41. Hard to tell with the warehouse in the way even though I am on top of the mound...

7V2A0265.thumb.JPG.cc819e4be2c9b8e7cad05736d9af7b9c.JPG

 

 

Next image happened five minutes later at 8:46. Amazing the color changes that can occur in that time period...

7V2A0325.thumb.JPG.975e0d314b88eec9852393ae699e14a4.JPG

 

 

Technically the last image of the night happened a minute and a half later. Although through rounding I will call it only a minute later at 8:47...

Departing system this evening. As usual, the dry air won as the sunset progressed. So only pre-sunset images this evening.

 

When I got out to the pond, the white. Taken with the  16-35mm at 29mm...

I could see from the visual satellite that it was going to be a race with the system to the southwest and the sunset. Only way to find out how it turned out was to be there. So I was!

 

  Started off with some parhelia (sundogs) on both sides of the Sun. Taken with the 16-35mm at 30mm...

7V2A1495.thumb.JPG.12780eac8c0b0d6b33e931fe63e8461c.JPG

 

 

Here you can see just how fast the system to the southwest was racing in. Only had a sundog on the north side of the Sun. But it as bright as bright can be. You can even see it in the reflection of the water! Taken with the 16-35mm at 35mm...

7V2A1641.thumb.JPG.cb7b0bacd35276e055a68b66f07f77e5.JPG

 

 

Moving on to the post sunset and the yellow. Taken ith the 16-35mm at 35mm...

Last night I missed some colorful clouds getting some stuff done around the house. This evening I was not going to make that same mistake. Trouble was the atmosphere does not play that way.

 

Best clouds were to the south when I first got out to the pond. Taken with the 24-70mm at 27mm...

7V2A1991.thumb.JPG.9d728539d848ed61639d8f5e386ab27b.JPG

 

 

Around local sunset even though the warehouse is blocking that view. Taken with the 100mm at 100mm of course...

Nice conditions at the pond this evening. Winds were close to calm. If it wasn't for all the fish popping the surface it would have been perfect.

 

Best image of the night was when I first got out there. Had to chop a lot of the reflection off to be able to get all of the clouds in the image. Taken with the 16-35mm at 17mm...

7V2A2444.thumb.JPG.933cd9158c3d9c9f773d8486b263d2ba.JPG

 

 

After the fact, looking at the visual satellite, I am surprised I got any color at all. But here is the best I could do. At least the reflection is top-notch. Too bad I was so heavy-handed processing this one. Taken with the 16-35mm at 35mm...

Had decent conditions for the sunset this evening. Perfect amount and placement of clouds. Too bad the breeze was up. Put a damper on some of the reflections. But still a nice time.

 

When I got to the pond the bronze hour was underway. Taken with the 24-70mm at 62mm...

7V2A3219.thumb.JPG.7c2c9f9bd11a399b3d6d3158ccfa8079.JPG

 

 

This overview shows howw even though the Sun is on the horizon, the bronze hour blazing. the cirrus way overhead was still shining with the white light way up there. Taken with the 16-35mm at 20mm...

7V2A3297.thumb.JPG.2c9797f0ccbbd01266c4f262bedf09cb.JPG

 

 

A bit of a rocket engine was ignited this evening. Taken with the 16-35mm at 35mm...

Did not go out to the pond this evening. So I took the sunset images from the front yard instead. Have to put up with the building, trees and wires.

 

Start off with a zoomed in version. Taken with the 16-35mm at 30mm...

7V2A3761.thumb.JPG.96b9edc08fb458d1f5e1d4a0fd68b2e5.JPG

 

 

And then more of an overview. Taken with the 16-35mm at 24mm...

As the Sun was getting lower and lower in the sky tonight I could see a clear sinking motion as the clouds were evaporating. So it was going to be a race between the dry air and sunset again.

 

As the Sun got close to the horizon, this is how it looked. Not bad but I knew it was not going to last. Taken with the 24-70mm at 58mm...

7V2A3936.thumb.JPG.e5faa487a13bbd8a69975a454ddc4a8e.JPG

 

 

Here as the orange was getting ready to turn red, you can see the variety of cloud heights. The white up high the dark blue/grey of the low clouds and the medium clouds where you can see some color. Just a smattering of each type here and there scattered about the frame. Taken with the 24-70mm at 57mm...

7V2A4161.thumb.JPG.53751876ed6d443a94d006c03932ea7e.JPG

Another fine evening behind the viewfinder.

 

When I got to the pond a view to the north. you can see how far along the new building is. The foundation is complete. Just waiting on the cure before the structural steel goes up. Taken with the 16-35mm at 25mm...

I had given up on any more color and was heading back to the car when there was an extremely brief red flash. I had to just stop in the middle of the construction site and get the camera operating again. Looking to the northwest. Taken with the 100mm...

Not much in the way of color tonight. So I will go with a comparative study of horizontal versus vertical orientation.

 

Start off vertical. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm...

After a perfect cloudless day, Some cirrus from the next system approached the area during sunset.

 

Started off with some parhelia ( sundogs ). The north side as super bright. There is also some on the south side but much more subtle and hard to see. Taken with the 16-35mm at 30mm...

7V2A6431.thumb.JPG.6cc0b57261ae791fee8d7fe50a846b36.JPG

 

 

About the best the post sunset color as going to get. Taken with the 16-35mm at 31mm...

I had really not expected to have anything to shoot this evening. I had not turned on the computer all day so I had no idea what might happen. all I as going on was the way the clouds looked all day. And that was not encouraging. But when I left dinner a quick look at the sky told me I should had out to the pond.

 

When I got out to the pond there were no fishermen there. Kind of surprised me. But that meant that the fishermen point was open so I took up being able to get right out on the water. Looking from the south to the west. Taken with the 16-35mm at 17mm...

Even going vertical to get the cirrus overhead looked good. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm...

7V2A6931.thumb.JPG.0e496536265b6ebf9c26d35cf898cf47.JPG

 

 

Eventually it had to end, The fishermen showed up and started roiling the water up so I needed to move locations. Headed to the top of the construction mound. Do not know how much longer that is going to be there. They have used most of it to backfill. But there is still enough right now to get on top of it and take images. Even the view to the east tonight looked decent. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm...

7V2A6958.thumb.JPG.b4f85de5d913482a5bd87c065af8bf25.JPG

I have been told that I missed a fantastic sunset last night. Oh well. These things are going to happen.  I was out at the pond tonight just in case it wanted to be fantastic again.

 

Started off looking to the southeast when I got out there. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm...

Last image of the night. The red happened to the cirrus that was behind some cumulus. Nothing fantastic but at least it was some color. Taken with the 16-35mm at 35mm...

Had some cirrus hang tough through sunset this evening. I expected the dry air to win but while it as a close thing. there was a little to image.

 

Started off somewhere new and novel. I crossed over to the other side of the pond right at first. There were no fishermen out tonight so I had the whole place to myself. When I got over to the other side, I found out why there were no fishermen out. That whole bank on that side of the pond was nothing but mud. So I only took a couple of images before moving back to my normal side. In this though you can see what I call the fishermens point on the extreme left side of the image. I normally shoot from the seventh tall reflection tree from the left. You can kind of see where I have thinned out the cat-tails a bit. Taken with the 16-35mm at  17mm...

7V2A7789.thumb.JPG.d0f1ac5f75942c1d9820a65cf902b67b.JPG

 

 

Back to my normal side and out on the fishermans point. Looking southwest as the color was getting primed to go. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm...

7V2A7933.thumb.JPG.d09ddc818596b09fdec1f245d2b503c6.JPG

 

 

Southwest again but with some color in all of the cirrus. Taken with the 16-35mm at 16mm again...

7V2A8008.thumb.JPG.281dd0de3ce77d7f3a35637300510c6f.JPG

 

 

Eventually all that was left was this lone cloud. Looking almost due south. Taken with the 24-70mm at 43mm...

I told myself that I was not going to go out to the pond this evening. I was going to stay home and catch up on the some sleep. Then what did I do? I went out to the pond anyway. I do not think, I know I have a problem. Guess I can be a rumblin' zombie at work tomorrow.

 

Only one image this evening. Was a sparse night post sunset. Only some cirrus off to the east. So I got the cirrus and a little bit of the "belt of Venus". Taken with the 16-35mm at 21mm...

Only one image tonight also. An absence of clouds is still a sky condition, right? Anyways, right after sunset there was something close to the horizon. Almost looked like smoke but it did not dim the Sun while the Sun was above the horizon so was it haze brought up by the system to my south? You could see whatever it wwas on the sub-regional portion of the visible satellite. It was even all across from Ohio to Iowa. Anyway here is what it is. Taken with the 100mm at 100mm of course...

I thought there might be a chance for some decent color right after sunset and I guessed right. Glad I made the effort.

 

Just going to start with the yellow right after the Sun rounded to corner of the horizon. Taken with the 24-70mm at 42mm...

Moved over the the southside of the pond seeing how a lot of the color was more towards the north. Taken with the 16-35mm at 25mm...

During the orange there were some very distinct cloud shadows. Taken with the 24-70mm at 54mm...7V2A8892.thumb.JPG.9a4b5add2be064298366666182621bc5.JPG

 

 

And ending the evening with the red. Taken with the 24-70mm at 30mm...

Had the perfect amount of clouds overhead this evening.

 

When I got to the pond, looking east. Very photogenic. Taken with the 16-35mm at 19mm...

7V2A9005.thumb.JPG.569632ecc19ccabbc5011322d260d288.JPG

 

 

To the west I had the perfect amount of cirrus. Taken with the 16-35mm at 17mm...

7V2A9277.thumb.JPG.a6420e2f256a9af3fae9b211e7a38958.JPG

 

 

It is too bad that the convection in northern Illinois shut off the post sunset light. It could have been epic with all the cirrus overhead. About the best the color would do, and that is not saying much. Taken with the 16-35mm at 23mm...

By this last image of the evening everything had turned so blue that I just went ahead and made a B&W out if it. Taken with the 16-35mm at 17mm...

Tonight was a case of a cloud shield to the south and a clearing trend to the north and west. And here I was stuck in the middle with you. Sometimes the best place as far as cloud watching.

Started off looking northeast when I got out to the pond. The light always seems to be kind to the east as I show up recently. Taken with the 16-35mm at 29mm...

7V2A9646.thumb.JPG.8f1016c030f60410ba139d5970c91a4d.JPG

 

 

Just going to skip right to the color. This is close to local sunset. The last sliver of the Sun above the warehouse. Taken with the 16-35mm at 27mm...

7V2A9943.thumb.JPG.459c62c074b9d3777be5c38f18e6a820.JPG

 

 

Beginning of the yellow. After this shot I decided I needed to move more to the north to be able to see all of the color to the south. Taken with the 16-35mm at 17mm...

7V2A9971.thumb.JPG.6b629ec50e25abd8a62ce0798a684682.JPG

 

 

Now at the fisherman's point for the beginning of the orange. Taken with the 16-35mm at 17mm...

The red overhead to orange on the horizon. Taken with the 16-35mm at 34mm...

7V2A0135.thumb.JPG.1b8658bc32e62b10961aa64345bf5e1d.JPG

 

 

And ending the night with the fading red. Taken with the 16-35mm at 21mm...

After dinner I could not make up my mind. Water the flower bed or head out to the pond for some clouds. I picked the clouds. Big surprise, right?

 

A cumulus clouds turning yellow looking to the southeast. Taken with the 100mm...

7V2A0363.thumb.JPG.04744709d46a167a2d3c2f40ff95c865.JPG

 

 

Looking to the southwest. Got my friend the muskrat in this image. He/she has ruined so many of my images figured I should showcase him/her for once. Taken with the 100mm...

7V2A0493.thumb.JPG.1ecb36de56ffcf0c8c3a207b48e80b80.JPG

 

 

The beginning of the incidental light. I like the tad bit of rosey color behind the cumulus. Taken with the 100mm...

7V2A0559.thumb.JPG.ec446bcff3e8920b65d392f916af0e08.JPG

 

 

Switched lens to get more of an overview. Taken with the 16-35mm at 35mm...

7V2A0617.thumb.JPG.14384ba6898853336e40a6fe1bbbd543.JPG

 

 

These last two images the color is all kinds of over the top. But it is showing something I do not get to image very often. Over-the-horizon crepuscular rays and even the rarer anti-crepuscular rays. This one shows the anti-crepuscular rays as it is looking to the southeast. Taken with the 16-35mm at 17mm...

7V2A0628.thumb.JPG.43ba249d0d912a9a3b15fb3cddd7c1b1.JPG

 

 

Here is a look to the northwest at how strong that one ray was. Taken with the 16-35mm at 29mm...

Another busy hour or so behind the viewfinder again tonight.

 

Started off right as I pulled in the driveway from work. The Sun got temporarily eclipsed by a cloud. Had a somewhat  decent cloud shadow to it. Taken with the 24-70mm at 68mm...

7V2A0741.thumb.JPG.afc959ff03852793b09839b85df29bf1.JPG

 

 

What it looked like when I first got out to the pond later. Taken with the 16-35mm at 22mm...

7V2A0792.thumb.JPG.46dba594d8cdb95f28c14f9cecc10d80.JPG

 

 

Close to local sunset as the Sun dips behind the warehouse. Taken with the 16-35mm at 27mm...

7V2A0977.thumb.JPG.78a25b7c1698e03521ed40c961b3e4e9.JPG

 

 

The myriad of color in this image really struck me. The green tinge on the horizon is extra special. Taken with the 16-35mm at 29mm...

7V2A1066.thumb.JPG.6ed78286be99833606b1c0631753d409.JPG

 

 

The red flash was nice. Started off in the northeast. Taken with the 16-35mm at 31mm...

7V2A1213.thumb.JPG.6bb9831ff044e1dd16bf499bee047b44.JPG

 

 

Here is the red, later, in the northwest sky. Taken with the 16-25mm at 28mm...
