Keelin brought Vol 6 to its 100th photo ! Allow me to begin Volume 7!
Great start of Vulume VII Michael. And wow what a great ending of Volume VI by you Keelin A great picture with a fantastic dreamy view on the coast of Alaska. A mysterious source of light at the horizon and some calm waves, all in deep blues. Love it.
Thanks for kind words and a great launch to VII, Michael and Hans!
For a few moments, Hans, I wondered if the winds were bringing us a new image our old friend who crosses the pond from time to time. But this is as far as it got — just a possi-billyg.
Portrait In Progress?
Arizona Color #701
Michael, is #701 taken with your new camera? The definition is amazing! You’ve really captured the feeling of these magnificent clouds.
Below, the sky displays a completely different mood.
PS: Hans, congratulations on your Cirrocumulus with sundog selected as Cloud Of The Month!
Keelin..Thanks but that pic was taken in 2017..same lens as I use today but different camera body. Same condition exist as i type , just add a bolt of lightning every 30 seconds. Monsoon came back after a 3 week vacation. The thunder is approaching the constant level..a constant rumble…I was watching it a little while ago. Quite a show…anyway…quite the mood there!

Keelin, I love your possi-billyg (or Portrait In Progress). To me it is certi-billyg. Great find! And thanks about the cloud of the month. I am pleasantly surprised about it, also in a second way, for I did not sent it in myself. It is a spotting from the Cloudspotter app taken with the phone. Shortly Gavin started to post the pictures of the day on the gallery (and this one was ‘just” candidate picture of the day). Nice to do so I think. Anyway I like the explanation accompanying the picture. There are always new things to learn about clouds.
Arizona Color #701 is a monumental cauliflower of a cloud Michael. Overwhelming details.
Indeed quite the mood on your last two posts Keelin and Michael. They make a perfect pair.
Nicely subdued peachy glow in your AZ #703, Michael. And Wings has got to be a favorite, Hans. Love the fleeting movement and also the twin flyers at the top.
A Touch Of Cirro
Arizona Color# 703 ..a straight up overhead shot of “roiling cloud”
Wow, Michael, an amazing shot! I smile to imagine you with camera held steadily aloft, the thought of an umbrella nowhere in mind. Nothing dramatic going on here, so really appreciate your sharing monsoon images with us.
Below, a soft cloud with a bit of highlight at twilight.
Keelin ..I’ve seen a few of the lightning strikes stories in the news and on the internutz which seem part of the slow summer news cycles ,,but thats enough to make me realize one drop of rain is telling me its time to go,,and who wants to get the camera wet? I’ve noticed lightning seems to follow the rain. Perhaps the wet acts like an conduit or easy path of least resistance for the lightning to get around. In any case Soft clouds or Sharp,one drop of rain is all it takes for me to be inside.

Glad to hear you put safety first, Michael. Undoubtedly the wiser approach is sometimes retreat! And you’ve captured a beautiful cloud collage above, a lovely study in blues.
Below, another shot from last week’s display of Cirrocumulus here.
A dramatic scene you’ve captured there, Hongmeiyuan! It looks as if your feet at the time may have been right up there with those splendid clouds. A warm welcome to the forum and hope to see more images from you in days to come.
Below, the sky had a rather dusty look that day, but I don’t suppose we should call these “Linticularis”.
