Yes indeedy! That's why I figure you just have to make do with whatever Mother hands you. Only full time pros can stick around until the weather improves or they get the right sky or whatever. The rest of us, it's like what training pilots call touch-and-go landings; they touch down, lift off again, come around and do it again, but when you're touring you can't go around, you just have to fly off to the next field, touch down, and take off again. It's especially true for folks trying to cram it all in a 2-week vacation. After we retired we gloried in having "all the time in the world," but it still wasn't enough. :|

Thanks, Steve, and thanks for the link! As to that one "off" cow, I considered either taking her out or making her black, but ehhhh... :|

When it comes to landscape work I really don't care much for a blank sky. Love seeing clouds in a photograph. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, Ernst. I love clouds, too! I suspect almost everyone does. :thumbup:

Great examples of lenticular clouds and of what I grew up calling (and still do call...) "Jacob's Ladders" .

Well done.
