For some reason I can never have too many pictures of clouds. I can't be the only one.

Those are so nice. I have always loved to look at clouds and yes, I still see "things" in clouds. The one with the purple sky AND the rainbow are so pretty. The first one looks like an airplane with a sea monster and a gladiator riding on top of it.

Yep! I am impressed daily by clouds and there never ending beauty. I never can get to much. Did you take those pictures? You must have a good camera. My camera just doesn't do the pictures of clouds I take any justice. But I still take lots of pictures of them.

In these shots I used a Fujifilms E550 with 6.3 megapixels. I've upgraded to the E900 at 9 megapixels and a 10mp Canon A640. Both are very nice cameras. These were all taken here in Bethel Alaska this past summer and last summer.

the other day we had a few layers of clouds which made for a cool picture. The higher clouds casted a shadow on the lower.

Those are beautiful pictures! I'm glad someone likes clouds as much as me. When I lived in Fla my house pointed toward the sunset and I would sit on my porch and just wait to see what it looked like with the clouds in the sky. Here a collection of mine. I haven't taken as many since living in NH its more turned towards leaves

For those interested, here is a link to a nice cloud chart with the official names used by observers when encoding clouds....

Awesome pics, guys. I like clouds, too.
Twice in my life I saw some weird cloud rainbow thing. I never seem to have a camera when I see it. It wasn't a real rainbow, but rather a sort of patch of rainbow.
