    Contrail over Ankor Watt, Siem Reap Cambodia about a week ago.
    Also a 2014 Xmas eve contrail over Mekong River, Ho Chi Min City near to Cu Chi tunnels and visible for an hour's boat trip back to Ho Chi Min City ferry wharf. The two vietnam pics are the same contrail viewed from different boat locations over that period. Xmas eve.... could have been Santa

    I was told not to chase the clouds. So, of course, I chased the clouds.

    Nighttime cloudscape. I like this tree out front, but it does block my view of the contrails a bit.

    Oh that is sweet composition, Mick! I love that one.





    (and who else would complain about obstructed contrails?) :p

    Thought I'd try a snap of a moonlit contrail, particularly as Jupiter was in-shot. Unfortunately, a street light was also in peripheral view (to the right) otherwise it might have been slightly better contrast/quality.

    I have to say, the SRM pilot/program has a touch of fail about it, don't ya think? :p IMG_20150203_191012.

    Nice. It's usual to get cirrus uncinus clouds like that preceding a weather front

    Some much needed rain heading our way, with these's "newly invented clouds" Undulatus Asperatus heralding things.

    We had a little of that action on Jan. 26 in Bakersfield. The system only rained enough to get the bottom of our rain gauge wet. I hope you get some significant totals, without getting too much from the Pineapple Express.

    It's a mixed blessing :) We had about three inches of rain yesterday. And the pretty sky did not last. This is it now:

    It will be raining soon for you- if it isn't already. It has been pouring here in the N.Bay since about 6am...I have received about 5 inches since Friday...and still pouring.

    It sure is. And to keep on topic, here's the sky outside my window, in reflection:

    Ok I didn't take this but my girlfriend did. This was Winnipeg. I am assuming the long gaps in the otherwise solid cloudbank are probably caused by high flying aircraft somehow.

    Great image. The unfiltered one is much better IMO. There's too many overprocessed images on the Internet these days and they simply look fake to me. The lower image in your post is simply a great shot of a dramatic sky made even better with the nicely silhouette trees in the foreground.

    Sunrise taken through the trees a couple of days ago. I do love a nice vivid dawn/dusk red or orange sky. Sunrise.

  32. Beautiful fallstreak over Amsterdam (or actually quite a bit away) today, looking south-west (excuse me for the patriotic Dutch flag :))

    And as a bonus a nice sharp cloud front.

    A beautiful day in Northern California...some little popcorn showers blowing up with what little convection there is on a cool February day. If you look closely you can see San Francisco off in the distance about 30 miles as the crow flies.

    A beautiful morning in south-Western Australia (01/03/2015), later the sky clouded over completely. I will add that the camera greatly enhanced the blue in the sky, down here it's much more 'washed out'.

    Does this count? It was the only cloud I saw all day and I felt a bit sorry for it :)

    Pt. Reyes National Seashore.

    Its the first bike ride I have ever taken where I saw elk and sharks on the same ride.

    Good day.

    Beautiful sky when I came home for lunch. March 10, 2015, 12:30 pm over Bakersfield, CA. Wish I had a wider angle lens to capture it all.

    On my way back home from Germany. It was quite cloudy in Europe. I saw a sharp cloud on the way.
    IMG_20150314_154652.
    I saw more on the way but couldn't focus properly (my phone doesn't like taking pictures on the plane :D). What I saw interesting about these clouds is that they seem to break apart like icebergs from the ice sheet.

    And, nearer the horizon, white clouds on dark sky. On the same side of you as the sun. A nice illustration that shadows are not always intuitive.

    It was an interesting (well, interesting to me) sky here yesterday. I also took this. I think that might be the same linear cloud structure at the bottom of the photo.

    This is Shingle Springs, CA, (just east of Sacramento) here's the region:
