I love clouds

There are lots of reasons to love clouds. After all they bring needed rain and block out direct sun on hot days. But I love clouds for their beauty and unpredictability. Clouds are especially beautiful after a storm, and sometimes before a storm. In other words the best times to get interesting clouds in your pictures is when the weather patterns are in the process of change. Then clouds can become the main subject, as in the picture below, or they can add interest to some terrestrial subject as background or frame. So watch the clouds, and enjoy this gift from the atmosphere of our fragile planet.
