Cloud Watchers – April 12, 2012

Cloud Watcher Journal – Entry for April 12, 2012

Dear Cloud Watcher,

It wasn’t but four days ago I revamped my interest in the shiny bubble that looms overhead.

Tonight, as I played catch with my brother and his son, the light was fading.  I noticed out of the corner of my eye that sun rays were shooting out at angles from an odd mass of clouds.  I excused myself as I ran for my camera and pointed it up into the sky once again as shapes and different patterns appeared.

I really don’t know why I like this kind of photography.  It may because nature’s show comes to my front window and says hello.  Whatever the reason, it always makes me feel good to have witnessed its performance and reminds me that I am blessed to have lived through another day.

Best Wishes & Happy Cloud Watching

Gary Marks

Cloud Watchers: July 9, 2010

Did you catch the sunset last night?

Clouds from an evening thunderstorm still lingered near sunset.  At first,  it seemed that the sun would be hidden behind deep clouds preventing those brilliant shades of pinks, reds, and blues.  The show was on, though, as the rays of light spotlighted the high cumulonimbus clouds.

Take a look at what was photographed.

Did you see the sunset last night?

After a scorching day of heat and humidity, the sky popped with reds and dark blues as the sun went down.

The anvil cloud photo was taken on June 9, when a thunderstorm was rolling just south of us.

Cloud Watchers: May 31, 2010

Around 7pm last night some strange clouds rolled in. Dark, low hanging clouds turned  everyone’s attention to the sky. Wind could be heard in the distance and soon it was upon us. There was only a little rain involved, but it was quite impressive.

These clouds are called arcus clouds, or shelf clouds, and are sometimes associated the front edges of a cold front.  Here are some photos of the clouds that passed over.

Just wanted to do a quick post after a brief thunderstorm rolled through this evening.  The sky was lit up with different shades of blue and sunset red.  Enjoy!
