  10. wispy clouds are far better than the ones w have been having this week!

  11. I think this is going to be the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and your photography is spot on. I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.

  12. I love clouds of all kinds but I think the ice crystal Cirrus is one of my favourites, Cirrus makes such beautiful patterns across the sky; and I believe what you caught here is known as Cirrus intortus, delicate ethereal twists.

  13. Lovely, homey sky shot, Hildred.

    Have a blessed weekend!

  14. Very dreamy sky!
    Also love your cloud from Aug.12c -amazing!
