      Keelin ended Volume VII with an applicable and lovely Nighty-Night. It is always a pleasure to scroll first through the former Volume and see what different kind of sunrises and sunsets can be admired before going on with the next Volume. Highly recommended!

      Thank you all. All great sunsets above with one crepuscular sunrise by Keelin.

      And welcome Salil. Your great

      sunset made me look for more on your website ithroughmyeye.com but I got the message the domain isn’t coupled with a website. Are you aware of that? I look forward for more from you.

      Arizona Sunset #802 by Michael is amazing as well. That must have been an amazing experience to watch that mighty cumulonimbus in the setting sun.

      Thanks for the comments on 802. I saw it developing from my backyard. When I couldn’t stand it anymore ,I ran off to the Park. Timing was everything. For the nimbus to blow out like that at upper elevation as the sun set..wow! I wasn’t the only one who got stopped in their tracks  watching this one.

Now where to start (I have gathered many many images over the past few months so I shall try to keep them in a steady trickle vs a large crashing wave). Over the summer, I got to fly back to Washington State to see old friends, and I took this lovely photo over I believe Missouri. I hope you enjoy!

      Ruth, those peachy hues you gather are just delicious. Also enjoyed your recent photos featured on the Gallery (foggy view from Moiese and dramatic skies over Charlo). And your End Of Day beckons like a dream.

      Michael, #810 is a favorite with that subtle blush of pink and the composition you’ve captured.

      Hans, Dissolving is decidedly dynamic!

      Tim, the rich color you’ve captured in your Dec 16th image reminds me of a warm blanket I’d like to curl up with.

      Gregory, what luck to see that pillar of gold!

      And Duncan, The busy sky is simply captivating. All great images you’ve posted.

      Lovely sun-kissed clouds bookending the day! Pinks and purples, golden, molten hues. The colors and formations are truly amazing.

      I seldom see Lenticularis in my area and had to pull off the road to properly celebrate their rare arrival.

      PS: Loved your Arcus formation over Missouri River on the Gallery, Ruth. Hope you kept dry!

      Keelin, wonderful to see those space ships in your neck of the woods.  I would have had a big glass of wine that afternoon!  Thanks once again for your compliment on my Gallery photo of the Arcus.  Of course at the time I had no clue.

      Michael your #817 is fantastic with its different colors. Love it. As I do ‘Soft Into The Night’by Ruth with its mysterious and soft color and the Late Afternoon invasion of UFO’s  by Keelin.

      Hans, a nice calming photo you have shared.  If you don’t mind I have a question regarding the Cloud A Day app.  I understand you are involved with this informative app.  I have the app downloaded to my smartphone.  I have enjoyed the cloud information but I have yet to use this tool to assist with cloud ID.  Does the photo that I may need help with have to be taken by that phone?  Thanks

      Thank you Ruth. I am not involved in the CAD app, but I know it is still work in progress. The plan is that it will replace the Cloudspotter app when it is ready. I have no idea when that will be. In the actual version of the CAD app I tried some things and see that the AI help with classification works well for the 10 main genera. The step by step wizard helps also with classifying your cloud. You can use a picture that is already on your phone to classify or you make one by clicking the camera icon. I think you will find out soon enough by some clicking,  trying and playing with the functions.

      Now I still use the Cloudspotter app for spotting clouds and phenomena, but it lacks the AI function and it lacks the marvelous CAD’s and their explanations. So for the Cad’s I use the CAD app. Oh, and btw, the CAD app aims to be cross platform so it will be not only available for apple but also for Android, etc. I am not sure about the status anyway.

      Do you also use the Cloudspotter app, Ruth?

      Hans, thanks for your app information.  I have not ventured into using the CAD app for Android.  I enjoy the cloud library from the app but have not used the step by step wizard or Cloudspotter AI.  Looks to be a useful tool once you get going.  I will use your suggestion and just start clicking.  For fabulous cloud examples and information I love using the icon that is in the upper right hand corner of this website page.  Tons of wonderful pictures and goes back years.

      Michael, Of course I like all of yours.  But #882 is so delicate, that’s my vote today.

      Yes, time for a lullaby Ruth. I love your Back To Present and Always A wonder. It is in the name. And Michael your last ones are fabulous and the ones I love most are #821 and #824.
      After a lullaby and when the sun is set this Volume reaches the magical number 100. So volume IX has to rise soon.
