      Thanks for a fun launch to Volume VIII, Ruth! Like your Caterpillar in the Sky, I can’t wait to see what emerges in this set. Also, congratulations on your shimmering crepuscular rays photo being chosen for Cloud of the Day (Nov 9, 2023) and Misty Morning in Montana on the gallery last month.

      And what a fine Snail you snagged there, Angela! It may take a while for it to cross the sky. Not because it’s necessarily a slow slider, but rather because the sky is SO BIG!

      Great start of this new volume with your caterpillar, Ruth. Also a very interesting cloud with these spikes. And a great snail by Angela.

      Ruth, I love the feeling of the big downpour in A Little Rain Must Fall.

      I suspect there would be some of that wet stuff in this one too. It looks as if someone had taken a pinking sheers to the top edge.

      This view is from the window seat en route home from a few weeks in Colorado. While caring for my sister post-surgery, we were both buoyed by the clouds both above our heads and by photos shared on the CAS’s pages, ever inspiring and good reminders to keep looking up. ;)

      Vertical cloudscape from me. Yesterday’s and today’s skies have been very busy in the afternoons with all sorts of nonsense going on. This morning we were under the mood of the nimbostratus but this afternoon everything else came out to dance again.

      Portsmouth, UK, looking towards The Solent, a body of water between us and the Isle of Wight (beyond which is the English Channel / La Manche). I think that cumulus congestus in the distance is building over the water.

      Lots more isolated cirrus behind me, and those cloudlets at the top were smaller than my outstretched pinky so I’m calling cirrocumulus.

      I’ve been away for a week at a music festival. We had unsettled weather and therefore some wonderful skies. We arrived under a nimbo stratus and from the following day onwards it was just a few showers of varying duration. It remained quite warm with a few windy spells at ground level, and we heard distant thunder but it didn’t reach us.

      I’ve made a whole album for them (over 50 photos) and as a new cloudspotter I was absolutely delighted with the variety. Lots of amazing cumulus congestus and so many varieties of cirrus that I’m going to have to make a spreadsheet so I can work them all out! I was even treated to a very faint sundog and some lower level virga.

      I have two more festivals this summer, but I’m not sure they’re going to come close to this one for clouds.

      The following day there was this. I’ve seen loads of sundogs in my life but never photographed them. This was taken around 6.30pm (I’m in the UK by the way). One little sundog, cirrus having a huge party in the background, and some incredible cumulus congestus that you can just see behind the trees, bottom left. They were incredible but even my full photo of them (in the album) does not do them justice. What I could see with my eyes was stunning, but zooming in on my mobile phone just flattened the scene. It was like a city carved into a mountain.

      Thanks, Ruth. You found the perfect spot for Daydreaming — that is if you can close your eyes to the skies even for a moment!

      Michael, that is one beckoning view to the blue.
