08.21.2016 The illuminated cloud

The wisps were so serendipitous at the moment the large backlit cloud began to glow from the rising sun.

    Sure can’t argue with the inner light–and, as you said, one never knows when it will shine!

  4. I guess that’s fog, but my first impression was smoke. The unusual combination of elements in your photograph makes it quite effective.


    • Fog it is indeed. Smoke rising from that location would be quite alarming. I’ve seen some really enjoyable cloud formations from this location and one never knows how they will light up…or if at all.

    Steve, there’s some real magic to this image. You have the light, the rolling mountains in the background with mist between them, and of course, the wisps of fog rising up from the trees. And the larger tree on the lower left. I love the layers. Nicely done!

    This is another photo I love because of the sense of movement it embodies. I can almost feel that light breeze, bending the tendrils of fog. As for that light finding a gap in the clouds? You’re exactly right. You just never know when that’s going to happen. 🙂
