Hot and cold clouds

The skyscapes here are so varied that I could spend more time looking up than down — if I didn’t love the earthy minutiae like fungi so much.

The other night I caught this tail end of what must have been a stunning sunset, when I’d been on the phone!

Clouds make sunsets, and these were on fire.

But then, after the many late afternoon rain storms we’ve been having lately, I get some beautifully cool and complex layers of clouds — strips and stacks, ascending, descending, or going straight by.

What a world!
