Sorry for the ambiguous thread title.

Does anyone else like pictures of cloud formations?

Not a skyline, no trees or anything else - just the sky & clouds.

Vapour trails included, as are other things like aircraft or hot-air baloons.

Oh, and the Moon.

My mrs reckons I'm getting weirder (she's probably right).

I have taken a few (not very good as I still haven't found time to learn the art).

This is one of my favourites.




So, please post yours up smile


(P.S. if you have a skyline, please post it as I like those as well).

A neighbour's recently expired father was a meteorologist and took thousands of photos of clouds. In fact there's a boxful of glossy b/w aerial/satellite photos about to be thrown out going back to at least 1970.

So you are not alone. Well you weren't, but you are now smile

Took this yesterday, a few seconds late and using my phone so didn't get the full effect that I experienced as it was stunning. Vapour trail obscuring the sun and creating a lovely shadow.

Great pics Chris. What made you go B&W for those shots? Was that done in processing?

Toasty, great pic smile

If anyones in doubt that the british landscape is boring, GO TO SCOTLAND!
