The first one's nice, but I love the clouds in the second.  We have a trees thread and a rocks thread.  Maybe we should start a clouds thread?

Come on you guys: "equivalents" "equivalents." Not clouds. Stieglitz would roll over in his grave.

I'm with Mike on these. I like the second, but the first doesn't really move me.

I agree completely. I posted the first because it amused me: the white cloud looked to me (and to my five-year-old daughter!) like a face peering out from behind the mountain, with the dark areas bringing to mind eyes, a nose and a mouth.

Let's get the clouds thread going!

Jeremy-
I'm with you and your daughter on the first shot.  The first thing that jumped out at me was that creepy face in the bottom cloud.  

Nice shots, everybody.  I guess clouds were due some respect here.

Look here, chaps. If I start a thread, it's damn bad manners to post to it shots that are better than mine!

Seriously, this could turn out to be fun. I'm looking forward to it.

Jeremy

PS: Mike, I love the genie. I'll show it to Imogen when she gets back from school.

Some great work, folks... keep 'em coming!

Here are a few more (love clouds, can you tell?)

The intense colours in these first two images are actually from the smoke from the 2009 forest fires in west Kelowna.

Love clouds in B&W too.  Note the osprey in the left image.

Well, those fluffy things in the sky look like clouds to me!

Just testing - glad to see you're wide awake and alert!!!   It's not everybody who can spot a stupid question.

Well, mist is low cloud, so here's my most recent. Taken yesterday just after midsummer dawn, from the top of a local hill with an Iron Age hill fort on it. Looking south towards the sea, over a well-known local landmark, Colmer's Hill - the one with the trees on top.

I have already removed a cellphone mast that was looming on the skyline, and may remove that rather distracting track bottom right. But I think the electricity pylons stay - they are (sadly) very much a feature of rural England.

Thanks for another promising topic-based thread, Jeremy.
