Skywatch Friday - Radiating Clouds

Looking towards Sabino Canyon from the neighboring community and schools on January 26th, around 5:00PM.

I don't usually carry a camera when we just go out for exercise. Chris runs while I prefer walking. I was glad, however, to have brought my camera on Monday when the clouds were arranged like this. Check out more sky photos from around the world at Skywatch Friday.

Fantastic cloud formations. I use clouds as a form of meditation in warm weather. Lay on the grass and watch them move.

You sure that's not a space ship masquerading as clouds. Vroom, vroom! ;-) It's amazing how the long narrow clouds have formed lines.

Looks like someone has been plowing the sky. I wonder what will grow up there now!

AWESOME! I absolutely love your billowing altocumulus clouds... like rays of clouds. Wonderful capture. Glad you had the camera!

Interesting how the clouds line up so evenly. Particularly in the first one, where it looks like they radiate out from the tree.
