I took this photograph in the early morning as the sun was hitting Chimney Rock in Western Nebraska. The clouds were amazing that day.

These are very unusual cloud formations, at least, to me :) Very sharp, beautiful colours and composition. Congrats!

Great shot, Derrald. Looks like you were in the right spot at the right time. I like the low POV you've chosen, putting the emphasis on the superb sky. The colours are rich from the early morning light. Well done.....

Unusual cloud formation. I think you got the composition just right - big sky country. I'm surprised the polarizer did not add even more drama to the shot. Well done.

A superb graphical cloudy sky!
I like the vertical lines between the two rows.

Man! ...and I thought Illinois had the monopoly on beautiful skies. This is just stunning photography... but it's more than that... it's such great coordination... you always seem to be at the right place at the right time.
