All but the last two pictures of this set were taken from my balcony on September 3, 2006... just before The Lynch Mob began to gather.

 

The last two pictures were taken from my stairwell, on the opposite side of the building from my balcony – which is located on the east side of the building.

 

These last two pictures were taken, facing west, after the sun had already gone down below the horizon but the daylight would not fully fade for another half hour. I took the last two pictures as I waited for the lynch mob to show up.

 

For those of you who don't know what I am talking about when I mention “The Lynch Mob,” check out my "Presumed Guilt" post in the "Viewpoints" forum.

 

These pictures are what I was really after that day.

I hope you are not referring to me! Because I am not a "Lynch Mod!" I always look at the problem from the side of myself as a mod, and from the side of the member making the post! I always try to be fair!

 

You must be talking about Chevy and NJ when you talk of "Lynch Mods!"

 

Also, did you make the Panda face in that picture or was it natural?

Oops! 

 

Bummer, I not only misspelled mob, I did it two out of three times.

 

I have corrected the oopses.

 

I have in no way altered any of the pictures except to resize them and to add my signature stamp.

 

That is pretty much as the sky looked. The camera does tends to red or blue shift, or lighten or darken, some images but I made no color or feature alterations myself.

No one else sees a Panda face in pictures eight and nine?

It' straight on in picture eight, and profile in picture nine.

 

Come on people, use you're imagination. Doesn't

everyone still watch clouds from time to time.

I thought they looked more like a koala face.

You are all wrong. It's obviously Pikachu. I'm not even a pokemon fan and I can see it.

Great pics Mac.

Thanks Quest, and to Walt who commented earlier. I think the Red Dawn set is a little better but I liked these shots too.

 

I may display two more clouds sets eventually. There are a couple sets of cloud pictures that the camera blue shifted; I don't remember the clouds being quite that blue anyway. Still, the color may not be completely natural looking but they were some interesting looking clouds, at least to me. I may pick and combine the best pictures of the two blue sets, at some point, and then display them.

 

Then there is the set with the sun rays coming through the clouds, some of those turned out nice too. That will be a set all to itself.

By the way, I keep forgetting to tell you about these clouds. I believe they are mostly smoke clouds that came from the massive forest fires burning in my state. Actually, the whole Northwest region, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington have several massive wildfires going on right now. All the smoke from these fires is impacted our air quality, especially hard in Idaho right now, and causing some spectacular sunsets and sunrises.

 

Anyway, this, among other reasons, is why I chose to title this set of cloud pictures, “Smoldering Sky.”

I can see a ferret or a koala too, but I'm sticking with the Panda in the second one, the one in profile.

Some time last year we had 'sandbows', rainbows created from the sand storms in Mexico.  They were quite pretty and rather unexpected.  So unexpected that I didn't have my camera with me.  I guess describing them isn't as effective as posting a pic eh?

Well a picture is worth a thousand words, so they say... so if your discription is over 1001 words, then I guess it will work
