I've Looked At Clouds

This area of NW Washington is mountainous, coastal, valleys and plains - we have clouds that change with the terrain.  These photos were all taken on the same day - while on a drive of about 60 miles round trip.


Clouds gathering over an old barn


A rain shower that never reached the ground


I've looked at clouds from both sides now



Clouds show some wind action



From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall


High rainstorm and misty clouds


Puffy white clouds above, dark rainclouds below



Bright blue skies and white clouds


Wispy 




Puffy and broken up


Gathering over the  hills

The clouds change in a minute


Sitting atop the hills

Puffy and circling


Smudged by winds






I caught a crow flying - in the upper left corner



More crows as they fly home for the night



I really don't know clouds at all.

I love watching the clouds and keep intending to learn what the various formations are called: cumulus, stratocumulus, cirrus, cirrostratus. I have a little Audubon pocket guide to clouds and storms that's been ignored too long.
