I just had to change the hard disk on my computer. Copying some files this came out.

    Sunset in the distance in Granada.
    Pretty sure is d500 and 70-200mm 2.8 fl

What a beautiful juxtaposition of complementary colors!

Fortunately, no.  But the convection was explosive due to the crazily hot weather!

Tristin, welcome back!  Thank you for the inspiration.  Here's my take on the B&W conversion.  For some reason, the B&W version made me want to trim it a bit...

Thank you, Bent!  I like the rhythm created by the clouds in your image.

Here's yet another dawn clouds image.

Thank you, Jakov, for the encouragement.  It is nice to appreciate the infinite amount of variations of patterns, and tying to present the clouds in various ways is a fun!

I agree with Jakov and yourself, Akira.
Sometimes I just sit (or lay down) and watch the clouds in the sky change.
Thanks for sharing!

Do you hear that impressive guitar riff and that pulsating bass drum?
