Skywatch Friday: Cloud Layers




The rains arrived late this year but they were welcomed. One of the things I love about the rainy season are the clouds that give a show in between storms. Here are some clouds over Monterey Bay as the latest downpour leaves town.


This shot was taken near Coastguard Pier and Cannery Row on my way home.


For other shots of skies around the world, go to Skywatch. Enjoy!!

  5. I once applied for a position at the Monterey Art Museum. I've been crushed ever since for not having the opportunity to live in such a beautiful place.

  7. I'm always surprised anew when I open your blog Lolo. Your art makes me think you are one of the European or Russian artists I visit, but then I am reminded that you live down the road from me.
    Funny this. I hope we can meet one day. So possible!

    The layer of clouds are beautiful and this photo looks like a painting.
    Yes, we need this rain. I like it too.

  12. What a lovely shot. I love that view from the pier. You had exceptional lighting and skies when you took this one. I think with the next rains moving through we may get some more awesome skies to photograph. Hi from San Ramon and enjoy the weekend!
