      The 21st vol went fast. Losts of fun! Finished up with some overhead undulatus by Ruth.

      Let me start Vol 22 with some  high cirrus putting on a show.

      A great start to Volume XXII, Michael, Hans and Ruth! Can’t wait to see all the mysterious, magical, fine art of cloud forms to come from each of you.

      Michael, I love pea soup.  B&W can be a challenge for me.  Glad you liked my fog.

      Keelin, hoping CA weather is improving.  Sense of Something may come to fruition.

      Ruth, your clever titles suggest some good times in your skies there—despite all those dark clouds. You seem to find the beauty in any weather as your recent photos on the Gallery show too.

      Michael, I’d also like to run through #224 on a hot day — so inviting! Love the gentle gesture in #225.

      I agree with Michael that your Mamma Fun is like science fiction Ruth. Love it.

      Great gentle movements in Arizona #225, Michael. Must be a coincidence but the swirly movements resonate in Toupee, by Keelin. Someone must be desperate.

      And Hans, that’s some voracious creature you caught there! This looks like something he might have chewed on…

      Thanks Michael and Keelin. A lot of amazing B&W’s above. Beyond Recognition is very funny, Keelin. And #3232 is a great sculpture of waterdroplets Michael. I like your wavy ones (#226 and #228) also very much. Great vista in Big Fella, Ruth. Is that the place where the crescent moon watches?

      Hans, you are correct about the best place to watch a crescent moon.  They can be sneaky.  Your passer-by is a super shot of virga I believe.

      Keelin, Beyond Recognition is got everything going for it.  That’s a keeper.

      Michael, #231 is fun to figure out.  What type of cloud would you say?

      Oh, indeed, this topic never fails to amaze! From Ruth’s Simple Pleasure to Hans’s Passers-by, with Michael’s wild shots spanning the spectrum of what’s possible up there, it’s all quite remarkable and keeps us gazing agog, wondering just what we’re seeing sometimes.

      Nice Illusion Keelin, painterly! To answer your question Ruth..howabout..Filigree..the wind blown filigree cloud..There s an idea for a line of cloud  jewelry. It was  cumulus that got quickly shredded by some winds.  Wolves I tell you.

      As a new member, I’m enjoying seeing the work of everyone in the group.  I’m especially fond of black and white photography, so I’ll add one of mine from a couple of years ago.  A thunderstorm in Weld County Colorado, north of Greeley.  I’m looking forward to getting some fresh images when our thunderstorm season gets going in a few weeks.

      Thanks Keelin. My habit  remains to go for the most depth of field as I can get. Lately tho,Im trying to just expose  for the bright spot with focus there,click.  So a lot of out of focus (mysterious) can come in handy. Some times it works some times you have to be in the right frame of mind to have fun with it.. Wild Shot btw.
