See Rule #14

1 Take a picture of the sky.
2 Post the picture in this thread up to 600 pixels across.

4 Provide a TITLE for the photo.
5 Deadline for the contest is Sept 18, 2009, Noon Forum time.
6 The predominant component of the photo must be clouds.
7 Other elements are fine: airplanes, kites, jet trails, just make sure they take a backseat to the clouds.
8 Judging will be done by Steve and Chris by whatever means they desire.
9 You may change your photo, but only one entry per Forum member.
10 Minor photo manipulation is allowed: crop, resize, Level Adjust, Color Adjust.
11 Major photo manipulation is allowed if you specify that you did so.
12 You will be judged on 2 elements: the photo and the title.
13 Rules may be changed in any way at any time for any reason.
14 The winner will receive a new  Prism Tee Shirt.  Other prizes may be added at the judges discretion.

Below is an example of an acceptable photo, although I am not eligible.

Good cloud hunting. Bonus points if you are hit by lightning and it is captured in the photograph.

Title: "X" Marks The Spot

Warm up your cameras.

Details soon.

Steve doesn't even know about it yet.  Cool

Heck with that.... I am warming up the smoke machine.  PITA to get it back on the roof though.  Hopefully no one calls the police this time.

Kite Hill Rotor Clouds.

Shot with iPhone.  Maybe these are more common than I'm aware of?

Southern Ontario was recently hit with some tornados and a friend sent me this one at a ski resort that I spent a lot of time at. Did some major damage to facilities and surrounding chalets and cottages.



Since it's not mine, not an entry

But those are chem trails, and they are the beginnings of man made clouds.

I did NOT take these pictures.  I just wanted to share pictures of lenticular clouds over mount Rainier here in Wash. state.

Ansel Adams called them "Sky Snails"   Cheesy


You sleep out in the boonies to get a great sunrise shot of Mount Whatever, and wake to find a streak across the sky that takes forever to dissipate. After this kind of thing ruins a few big efforts, you get kind of an attitude.
