Last Wednesday I took some photos of the sunrise (posted on Thursday). But I also turned around and took a few images of the clouds to the west. They were making all kinds of interesting shapes and the changing light made them very pretty.
I think these would be classified as a kind of cirrus cloud, but I'm not sure. There are so many variations on the basic cloud types and they can be difficult to differentiate. And I'm not a meteorologist so I've never studied them in any detail.
No matter. They're still fun to look at.
*With apologies to Phil Plait at Bad Astronomy. He frequently makes up a word that relates to the image that he uses in place of the old and boring "enlarge."
