Clouds fascinate me. Like snowflakes each one is unique. The calm serenity of the wispy clouds hovering over the cumulonimbus cloud did nothing to hint of the turmoil that must have been occuring at ground level. All comments and remarks are welcome. Tom

I couldn't agree more. I enjoy very much just watching the clouds. I love it when they are starting to build like these and the sun is setting. You can see a bright reflection on the west side of the clouds that really highlights all the puffs and curves. We really live on an amazing planet.

I am pleased to hear from a fellow "cloudaholic" Daniel. One of my favorite, if not the favorite, subject to photograph. Just so much diversity and beauty. :)

Best regards, Tom

Oh yes! I am usually disappointed when I go out with my camera and the clouds are absent, they can make or break a fantastic scene.

Always a joy to see what the creator has in store for sunset kat. I think I look at clouds more than any other single element of the beauty around us. Thanks for sharing your addiction and membership in CLA. (Cloud-Lovers-Anonymous) :)

I appreciate your appreciation of this image Vicki. If I posted all of my favorite cloud shots I'd have 20 pages of images. :)
