Powder Puff Clouds...

"A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed...
It feels an impulsion...this is the place to go now.
But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds,
and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough
to see beyond horizons."
Richard Bach

These clouds were billowing up above the clouds and smoke from the 
Indian Fire at Mono Lake...taken the same day as the fire shots I posted last week..

For skies all over the on Skywatch Friday!!!


  1. Wonderful! Milky white clouds with a dark backdrop.. dramatic :)


  2. The cause of the dramatic orange color in those clouds is most unfortunate, and I would love to think the clouds brought much-needed rain with them. But they really do look like powder puffs! And make for beautiful photos.

  3. Powder puff clouds they are!! So beautiful and such terrific captures for the day! Love the quote by Richard Bach! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  4. Whoa, that is some cloud! Immense...

  5. Thank you WildBlack!!!

    As of August 14 the fire was finally 100% contained Laloofah! Unfortunately, not much rain, though a few quick thunder storms...It did make for some beautiful color in the clouds though!

    Thank you LadyFi!!!

    Thank you Sylvia K!

    Thanks Emille!!!

  6. These remind me of Shanna. So pretty.

  7. It never ceases to amaze me how something as terrifying and destructive as a wildland fire can also produce such stunning visuals. Beautiful shots!

  8. Such a pretty shot. Glad the fire is contained.

  9. Your pics make me think of the song of Gainsbourg : "Dieu est un fumeur de havane"...

    Love them !
