I took this picture on a road trip recently—the evening sky was just blowing me away. I fully intend to do something with this image (I’ve been dabbling in acrylics but don’t dare show anyone yet).
I’ve come across a lot of great cloud images recently. Like the Times Online’s 10 best clouds, with great images. And the Telegraph, another British newspaper, put up a slideshow of extraordinary clouds—these formations are so amazing you’ll hardly believe they’re real.
