I don't think most of you know this, but I love the sky. I love taking pictures of many things, but I LOVE taking pictures of clouds. I wish I was better at it. There's just not a lot of books on cloud picture taking to learn from. So the other night on my way grocery shopping this amazing sky was above me. I HAD to pull over and snap some pics with my phone. Then as I kept driving, I kept snapping. Not the safest thing.
To have these photos... totally worth it.
These clouds were breathtaking... They did not swag down from the sky. Instead they were very smooth lined and almost swirled up. I have never seen a sky like this. The pictures I did enhance the clarity with my Camera+. That was it on most of them. It was hard to see the outline of each swirl without it.
Asperatus Clouds, that's the official name of the clouds. After looking around for awhile I was able to find pictures that were equal in characteristics. I found it very interesting that they have proposed to put them in their own classification. It is still up in the air for the time being though (yes, I make myself laugh).
I think I'm going to join The Cloud Appreciation Club with all the digging I've been doing on these babies.
This one (above) most represents the color and texture of them.
On a similar note. The sky last night (26th) was beautiful also. I heard that the planets were aligned. I'm going to have to look into that also. If it's clear out tonight. You might want to take a step outside and check out the moon.
