Last night I attended program at the Aldrich Museum in Ridgefield, CT, US and thoroughly enjoyed Gavin’s talk and presentation. I’ve enjoyed clouds forever and am so glad to have found this forum. We have beautiful clouds passing by our lake all the time and look forward to sharing and seeing what others capture as well. I snapped this photo while out kayaking earlier this week.

Beautiful sunset, Catherine.
30 September 2019, 5:51 pm, Brewster, NY, US – a very different cloud experience here:

Wow, Catherine, your photos are beautiful and evocative! Do you have formal training in the arts? They show a keen eye for composition. And what type of camera do you use? Thank you for posting them on the forum, and hope to see more images from you in the future.
Keelin, thank you for the kind words. I have no formal training in the visual arts (I’m a writer). However, I love the outdoors and capturing images – the pictures posted above were taken with my mobile phone camera (Samsung Galaxy S8).
I like this shot!dreamlike place!

Very nice catch. The clouds have been conducive to optical phenomena today in the NY area. Someone I know spotted a CZA in Queens and I saw one in Milford, PA.
Another gorgeous photo from you, Catherine! Thank you for sharing it with us.
A few days ago. I was lucky to catch a very subtle “smile” (near top of photo) in the mid-morning skies over Napa. This CZA moved quickly along, but held me motionless for the duration of its appearance. I’ll post a closer look on the Optical Phenomenon topic which is devoted to such wonders. Many amazing images on that thread!
Keelin, a wisp in time! Lovely. I’ve been walking into objects myself – afraid I’ll miss something in the sky. Thank you for directing me to the optical phenomenon topic in the forum.

So much movement in the sky today. 26 October 2019, 12:34 PM. Brewster, NY, US.
Catherine, lovely brush strokes, like an abstract painting. I too found last Saturday to be good sky day. Here is what I was seeing for a short while near Milford PA, though things were changing rapidly. With clouds, it’s the moment. (Or it’s the pictures.)
gvpreo, I love the reflection in your photo. Thanks for sharing.
Mask emerging from these swiftly evolving clouds. Fleeting image. (post Halloween appropriate :) 1 November 2019, 12:17 PM. Brewster, NY, US.
Very nice pictures in this thread Catherine. Thanks for sharing. Also by Keelin and George (especially the mirroring one).
Here a typical Dutch contribution from the archives to this thread.
Thank you, Hans. And thank you for your post…a contrast of menacing sky with rays of light and hope at the same time. Love the windmill.
When the lake is flat and the clouds are reflected in the water, the sky appears to double in size. 5 November 2019, 6:56 AM. Brewster, NY, US.
Catherine, your Clouds Over Lake photos are a beautiful and inspiring addition to the forum topics. I love the different moods reflected (no pun intended) in the images you’ve captured. Have you submitted them to Ian (CAS’s photo editor) for submission to the Gallery? If not, I whole-heartedly encourage you to do so.
And George, your photo above is a beauty in depth as well. Those tiny leaves floating on the water give such a sense of moment and season.
Hans, I love your windmill image. One can imagine its spin creating the wind that propels those clouds racing above.
Keelin, please see my response in post below – just getting the hang of this posting business.
Keelin, thank you for your encouragement. I did forward a couple photos over the past couple of weeks to the gallery and they did not get picked up. I can only imagine the volume of images sent to Ian from all over the world.
On my walk this evening, the scene from the beach was a stark contrast to yesterday morning and so I offer up: “And then there were none” 6 November 2019, 5:00 PM. Brewster, NY, US. The crystal clear skies only make the clouds such a treat when they appear.
I love this collage Catherine. Beautiful contrast between the two capture.
Thank you, Hans. It was pure luck/unintentional to capture nearly the same perspective on two different days. As I was comparing shots from the two days, I made the discovery and the contrast struck me, I went to line them up on my phone collage feature and there you have it.
If I were to rename this forum it would be simply “Clouds over lake.” As you see, I’ve strayed from sunset-specific captures :-)
Distant chain of clouds. A couple in the middle look like flying saucers to me :-) 8 November 2019, 4:24 PM. Brewster, NY, US.
Last night, the white puff of a cloud caught my eye, especially in contrast to the pink background. 12 November 2019, 5:11 PM. Brewster, NY, US.
Very nice! In New York City we had the much hyped cold front go through yesterday afternoon (like you did), which created lots of cloud spotting opportunities. Here is one sight from downtown Manhattan.
gvpreo, powerful image. Thank you for capturing and sharing. I remember that view from my days working in the World Financial Center – in the 90s. We had similar activity up here – I offer another view 12 November 2019, 5:12 PM. Brewster, NY, US.
On a rare work-week mid-day walk, looked up to see this wisp of an elf skiing through the clouds over the lake. 14 November 2019, 10:52 AM. Brewster, NY, US.
Love your Elf Catherine and also the other views you posted here. George posted also a magnificent view over Hudson bay and a second one of the same situation on the OFF TOPIC. George, you are privileged having such views from where you work.
Catherine, your lovely squadron of flying saucers reminded me of an old series of which I already used some elsewhere except for this one. It was a friendly visit I must say.
