Better than going to the movies....


Driving through the strip pit area late in the evening is better than almost any form of entertainment.


It is funny how quickly they change... 


I had to show two versions of this one...


I almost always convert cloud pictures to B&W just to see what they look like.  And truthfully, probably prefer them that way.


Okay this set is my last for the night...

Cool thunderheads. The second one is amazing.

Ginny Hartzler said...

WOW!!!! Gorgeous, and super cosmic! I love the long and straight road leading straight into the beauty. My favorite is the second picture. I like the color ones better, because I can see how very white the cloud is, and the pretty blue sky.

These cloud pictures are amazing. It is fun to see them in black and white, too. Thanks for sharing your drive through the strip pits with us.

Your pictures blow me away! Thank you!

Bill said...

Beauties! All of them. I put a sky picture for Monday as well.

Ann said...

These are fantastic. I love watching the clouds and no matter how old I get I will never stop looking for pictures in them. I like both the color and the black and white versions. My favorite of all is the one with the road..

Dearest Rose! How majestic these clouds are! Thank you for taking us under these beautiful skies and I wish you a great new week ahead!

I too love to watch the clouds. They are always changing, never the same and its like watching a slide show. Have a wonderful new week.

Certainly, that last one becomes more dramatic for the mono conversion; however, in the case of the one before it, on this occasion, I feel the colour holds the greater eye-value. Something to do with the balance of the blue, I think. I know what you mean about watching clouds... I do a lot of that from the Hutch!!! YAM xx

Wow, these are all gorgeous captures of the clouds and sky!

I love them all. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!

Wow! That's quite a show. We only very rarely see such a huge build up of cloud here and it usually means we're in for a huge storm.

Sandra said...

my two favorites and I love them ALL, are 2 and 5.. these amazing boiling clouds, just spectacular and i agree 100 percent better than a movie

Incredible cloud formations that just tower in the sky! Great captures! I am always torn between color and B&W when it comes to cloud formations.

Ruthie said...
