    My last one is from too long ago. I must say you all have shared some fantastic B&W’s meanwhile. Can’t mention them all but ‘Just Stringing Some Random Thoughts Together’ is a favorite Keelin as is #123 with its magical form, Michael.

    In my opinion they are mamma indeed, Ramona. Hanging underneath stratocumulus.

    Fluctus can be seen in cumulus and when you look it up in the ICA you will find a lot less convincing example than the ones you posted. I can understand Gregory’s  doubts but for me they are KH. Very nice capture.

    I checked several times an appropriate cumulus filled sky and when you’re lucky one can find a lot of these examples. Sometimes a crest on its own but also two or three and then mostly different in size.

    Keelin, I like your association with subtle and complex music  in Crestscape. It would be my favorite kind of music although it can get very stormy too. Just the complete spectrum. And I see that now at last the clouds in Rain Aplenty provides for the much wanted water. Love the diagonal shot.

    Duncan you captured some great skies. And Richard your ir’s are fanatastic as ever. The oregon high desert is my favorite.

    Ruth thank you. Your Cloud Creatures are great. A good eye for strange forms in the clouds is a true joy! It is also great you found the article in the Dutch newspaper Trouw on the Community with the history of the CAS and the way Gavin started the CAS. Always a great story to read with lots of humor. And now you know also the dog in my avatar is a cloudspotter too. It is so funny to be in it too.

    Especially for you this proof of the cloudspotting dog at the place where I can watch a cumulonimbus approach or be underneath it getting wet.

    Still a very nice initiative Hygge. It will be read by everyone who passes by. Who know how many it may have inspired to become a member?

    Love your sunset with the crepuscular rays followed by the red sunset, Duncan.

    Hope you have had the much needed rain Keelin. I can see it was on its way. As well in Gray Works Ruth.

    Keelin, your Halloween captures are fantastic. I love ‘Horned Devil Head With An Unhappy Expression’, ‘On A Mission To Find Dorothy’ (beware Dorothy!) and’Surrealistic Pillow’ (might that one be taken from a Jefferson Airplane?). Love them all three. And your ‘A Cloud As Lovely As A Tree’ is poetry itself that you don’t even have two writ yourself. In my opinion there is no need to resist the bards to inspire you. On the contrary.

    Also Duncan got inspired to quote W.H. Davies. Very nice. Maybe we don’t have time to stand and stare but I promise I will do over and over again.

    Ruth, a heart or a skull? That’s one for Halloween for sure. I agree with you on the running chicken by Michael.

    Thanks for asking Jiji, and no problem to share this elsewhere. No need to mention me. Have fun with it.

    This is an interesting one Jiji and a great image. It is a tempting one for sure and thanks for sharing it here.

    There can’t be any glory for that phenomenon the sun must be behind the observer, while the sun seems to be in front behind the mountain.

    In my opinion it isn’t a fallstreak either but I can understand why you think it is. A fallstreak hole usually appears in a layer of altocumulus which has the conditions for the undercooled droplets to freeze out resulting in fallstreaks. The band of cloud I see here is no altocumulus and I think it is low hanging stratus which is very probable in the chilly air around the mountain. This a good place for developing low stratus.

    Now what do we see? The sun comes form behind the mountain and on top of the mountain are tall trees that will throw their shadows upon any clouds surrounding the mountain. The observer (you?) are in the shadow of the mountain. I think that the streaks you see are the result of the shadows cast upon a layer of cloud below the top of the mountain. The shadows are deceptive because they seem to be above the mountain. Here I found a clear explanation of what I think it is.

    Shadows can appear above the mountain

    With this explanation I suppose there is a layer of invisible cloud on which the shadows are cast

    Any other opinions?

    Your ir-images are alienating and appealing as well Richard. Great storm cloud.

    Here they come, Ruth. A great view it is.

    Duncan, that’s a great sky to fly. Must be breath taking.

    Thank you Keelin for kind words. The birds in Before The Rain must have seen it coming. There is a lot happening in that sky. And do you allow me to borrow your title for my next one?
