Tonight’s Cloudscapes

At sunset, starting southeast and moving west.

  1. Ah, midwest cloud formations are awesome, literally awesome. Huge thunderheads that start just above the land and go ten, twenty, and maybe even thirty thousand feet up. Makes you inhale a little and go woah.

  2. Either the sky is falling or that is just a gorgeous peaceful sight. Not a bad way to close out the day. Thanks for sharing a little slice of heaven.

  3. You should get an intervalometer and look into doing time-lapse. The view you’ve got there would be perfect for it.

  4. Better than Looney Tunes and ice cream but not as good as petting the cat.

  5. Dang it, John, my camera budget just climbed up! Was planning on a cheapie…

  6. Any chance you could put up a link to full-sized hi-rez versions of your cloudscapes? These would make awesome desktop wallpapers…

  7. This is what my day needed – lovely sunset pictures from last night. Thanks, John!

  8. Thanks for these, they’re just beautiful and awe inspiring! (Again!)

    Wondering what kind of camera you’re using to capture these?

  9. Omg, those pictures are amazing! Well done sir!

  10. Lovely sharp images there, excellent detail. Great job, excellent camera!

    And for those considering an upgrade, I haven’t regretted going with a Canon G12 on the recommendation of a number of Ski Diva folks. I wanted something easy to haul along skiing, wouldn’t freak out from the cold, and would fit in a pocket (hey, ski parkas and ski pants have big pockets, at least the ilk I buy). The coolness is that the Canon is the best camera I’ve owned since I had the Minolta X700 film camera.

  11. Thanks! Yet again, the value of the trusty SLR over the point and shoot is manifest. I used to use a Pentax K-1000 back in the heady days of film – Clearly it’s time to enter the digital age.
