Photographer's Note

To address the first question many will wonder about, no, this photo was not manipulated.

I adjusted the contrast some and sharpening of the edges, that is all.

They are THE MOST unusual cloud formations I have personally ever seen. I love the layers upon wider layers progressing upward.

This is the same cloud formation as my previous posting entitled Clouds Illusions, only this picture was taken several seconds before the other one. There was no delayed exposure on this or the previous photo. This is exactly what I saw and photographed on 3-17.

I enjoyed the comments that several of you made regarding what the cloud looked like. As you can see, several seconds (before or after) can make a huge difference in the appearance of a cloud formation.

I hope you find pleasure in it as I do.

God's best to you! Tim

Photo taken in my back yard (3-17-04) in the Yakima Valley Washington State USA.
