Cloudscape over Chicago Sunrise

Sunrise Nov 15 2015 3

Quite a bit of variation in the, ‘cloudscape’ accompanying this morning’s sunrise.  I kept snapping photos until I captured the sun just peeking over the horizon.  Interesting patterns of clouds today.  Do you remember when you were a child and finger-painted in circles until your heart’s content?  That is exactly how some of the clouds appeared; at least, to me they did.  And there were ‘streaky’ clouds, wispy clouds, which, or course, does not provide you with the ‘real’ names of the clouds.  They are just my interpretation of the cloudscape this morning.  There was a lot going on in the sky today, with shades of pink and orange pushing through the grey tips of clouds.

Happy Monday, everyone!

        *LOL* Yes, that is exactly right! It might look like two or three (or more!) photos are the same, but there are subtle differences, especially when the sun is rising (or setting)!! You know exactly what I mean!! Cher xo

        Yes, yes, yes… exactly! And it is so difficult to decide between those little differences… haha!

    I like streaky and wispy better than stratus and cirrus, anyway. Nice picture!

      Awh, thank you, John! I know the names of several types of clouds, but truly didn’t want to embarrass myself by getting the names mixed up! Muchly appreciated, John! Cher xo
