    You manage to bring more out from your clouds than I usually can from mine (unless I go monochrome).

    Did you use filters? Mapped a different luts? Just wondering.

      Thanks, E. Most of these are straight out of the camera with some minor tweaks in LR. Photo #3 is a colorized version of a color photo. My fascination with contrails has been a constant in my life since I was a kid. Clouds and contrails have never lost their appeal for me.

    Most of the contrail I see are from flights to and from Toronto over Lake Ontario. Canada had a long Covid related shutdown and there was very little air traffic overhead. Flights are back to normal (somewhat) and I see more contrails now. Slim pickin’s last year, though.

    The orange, cloudy sky is my hands-down favorite, wow! It really brings to mind the skies in landscape oils from hundreds of years ago. They’re all beautiful though and they make a fine set.

      Thanks, Lynn. The orange cloud shot was cropped a bit to get a more dramatic feel. I have a similar photo, shot on Kodachrome a while back, and it really popped. Now that I think about it, it’s funny how I remember something so trivial so well after all these years.

    This is an excellent collection of clouds, and it’s interesting that you had that much variation on the same day. Yes, it pays to look up often.

    Next thing we know you’ll be photographing bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air.

      Thanks, Tom. Nice to know someone got the connection to the song. I was lucky (or maybe just observant ’cause I had nothing better to do) to see this level of variation in a short time. I have noticed that we have been having beautiful clouds over our normally overcast skies lately.
