Akira - a gigantic bird to the right  :o

Here is a September sky with contrasts after some rain showers.

Lars, to me it looked like a dove, but, yes it was too huge!

Thank you, Massimo!  Love the pink/purple color.  I love cumulonimbus as sculpture created by the nature.

Pretty powerful-looking cumulonimbus seen around this time of a year in Tokyo.

Happy Halloween!

I was channel surfing and came upon "The Bride of Frankenstein". I was taken by the set of the scene I was watching. Here, I am paying particular attention to the wonderful clouds painted on the backdrop. (this is a scene where a woman from the village unexpectedly comes upon the Monster)

Playing the scene are the delightful Una O'Connor and the indomitable Boris Karloff.

But this post is about the clouds!


Shot with my iPhone 12 to get a screen grab (something I enjoy doing especially with black and white movies).
