    You are really great to capture such a photo..

    I never saw clouds in this form like sparkles.

    Why do they have to ruin the picture by having information printed on an off principle diagonal? This could be printed horizontally instead. Perhaps this represents my aversion to the diagonal cut of sandwiches.
    Apart from the above, my favourite cloud formations are the very rare apocalyptic dense clouds and clouds that twirl at their bases-twirly clouds.

    I noticed that it should have been: ” principal ” and not ” principle ” as in my comment. Now that I have acquired a digital camera. I may be able to photograph some proper twirly clouds.
