Clouds - 2024


Recommended Posts

Time to fire up a new thread for the New Year. Thanks for all the views in 2023. And as usual will be deleting 2023 as I go along to make room for the new images.

 

Starting off the new year with a sunrise.  Can not tell but it was -6F when these were imaged. I must be a little messed up in the head to be out and taking these. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

First sunset of the year. It warmed up to a whole whopping 20 degrees so it was time to get back at shooting evening colors.

The sunset this evening.

I did not think the sunset would amount to much. But there was some clouds to the west. So I took the camera out to the country to get a good and clear view to the far west. Did not bring the tripod though, as I was not expecting much. So these are handheld through the car window. Blame any soft image on the photographer, not the camera.

Some faint late-afternoon iridescence in the cumulus. There was some nice cirrus inaction going on also that I could not see from the glare. Glad I took the image and was able to see it.

After a day of mostly to partly cloudy, around sunset the clouds all decided to take a hike.
