Very nice, Sage - I think that yours put mine to shame!

Suunto. I like how the cumulus fill in on top of the rolling hills. Like topping on a pudding.
Lucky you to see a rainbow just now!
Snowy tree tunnels are almost a thing of the past as power lines move in. Sort of warming in a way, a bit snuggly.

Sundogs can be found in pairs as well. Next time you see one look on the opposite side of the sun and you may be surprised to see another.

Lorax etc...... Go to the first post and click onto the link I provided. It will show you the exact same thing as post #2 but when you click onto each phenomenon you will see the explanation of what they are AND photos of many of them. Quite interesting!

Sage You captured such a vivid sunset. It is hard to get photos without those lines and such. If I see a good sunset about to happen I hop in my car and drive 15 miles out of town to get a descant shot. You know where it is? The golf course. So far I haven't been kicked off the greens...

The snowy photos look like they'd crunch crunch crunch if I walked on them.
Did you sit and watch the approaching storm?

Sage - those shots are incredible. The first 2 have unbelievable colors.

Y'all are making my head spin talking about crows and dogs when I'm seeing clouds.

Crow instability is when the wings of an aircraft mess up the contrails (vapor trails) left behind an aircraft.

There indeed was another, but it was obscured by the surrounding terrain. Growing up in North Dakota, I saw such pairs frequently during the winter, as there were no hills high enough to interrupt the horizon.

Snow

There seems to be some odd compression artifact in the fog picture ...

Those are wonderful, Xena. I can feel the stillness in both photos. But please tell me you did not take the first one today--I am not dressed for snow!

Lol. Not today. Hopefully we won't see those conditions for a couple of months, if at all.

I can feel the blizzard playing and swirling about ........
My face is turned up, mouth a gap as I run about trying to capture one. Oooo Oooo ooo I just caught one.

Nice duo.... Do you by chance have a spring and summer shot of that same setting?

Skipjack races on the Chesapeake Bay, 2009 (shortly before a squall).
