Night Clouds

It really is funny how you start out to do one thing and stumble upon something else quite by accident. The other night I decided to take Sunny-Girl my little Dauschund for an early evening walk. It gets dark sooner now and as I looked up in the sky, the moon and a beautifully strange formation of clouds presented the heavens in a manner that seemed wide open and magical. That feeling made me go back and get the camera to record this overhead vision. As usual, click each photo for a better view.

The photo above is what I call a "big sky" view in that the expanse of clouds with the moon peeking out made the horizon look huge.

I let sunny-Girl off the leach and she found something to investigate that allowed me to watch in awe as the clouds formed and reformed around the moon. This formation I found amazing because it resembled some of the galaxy or gas formation shots captured by the Hubble telescope.

Don't believe me? I found this shot that I think is a good comparison.

Strange too how this one, a variation of the first, is almost as if we had been transported into space and were now looking down on the earth. At any moment you almost expect to see the earth rotating into view below the clouds.

And, just to add to the mix, a storm is brewing in the Atlantic and day time clouds have formed to compete with the specticule from the night before. Another chance to run get the camera before they drift away...
