Word and Image

Thundercloud

Detroit. I had the opportunity to shoot this image as I took off from the Detroit airport. The clouds and sunset were pretty spectacular that evening. The image that I regret I missed was on another flight to somewhere. I had been asleep. Opening my eyes, from the middle seat position, I saw two thunderclouds sticking up from a continuous layer of cumulus clouds. In bright sunlight these clouds were hundreds of feet high. My description doesn’t do them justice and my regret is not reaching for my camera. I have never seen a cloud formation to match since then.

  1. Clouds are really wonderful in their majesty. Sorry you missed those thunderclouds. Hope you see something even better someday. I like this image. The different shapes of the clouds are so interesting and the colors are just beautiful.
