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

Late Afternoon Lennies PS: Loved your Arcus formation over Missouri River on the Gallery, Ruth. Hope […]

Lenticularis over Canyon View Mobile Home Park, United States

A pair of sleepy-eyed lenticularis over Mono lake, on the east side of the Sierra Nevada range, California, US.

Those long lashes look set for dream mode, Hans, where visions like the Michael’s lovely lenticular clouds may drift by and morph into, well, just about anything. Something Always Emerges
