Clouds, Clouds, Clouds

We had delayed our star trail shoot due to weather for some days. I had been checking which promised clearing of the cloud cover by 9:00 PM. As the sun was setting, the clouds seemed to be getting thicker and came spilling over the mountains and flowing into the valleys like water.

Hurricane Ridge star trail shoot.

What a clever focus Steve, it almost looks like a TS image, but we know it's not, and your choice was to reveal those wonderful clouds on top on the mountains. They also look like snow. A remarquable mon Steve. Thanks for your adorable coms during my absence. :-)))
