What a dramatic skywatch shot. Amazing how clouds can form into something like this.

Oooh - very mysterious looking sky. I wonder what causes the clouds to make those patterns.

It looks almost like a woman with long, flowing hair, flying in the wind.

Hm, looks like smoke emanating from the sun -
Very handsome clouds and perfect for skywatch.

Moody clouds -

Mmmmmm, nice! It looks like the beginning of a great story, kinda foreboding.

Like a grey veil being drawn over the world.

Such a dramatic sky that day, Mojo! I think the sun would really like to be out that day...the whisp of dark clouds looks like tumbled long hair. :)

Happy Skywatching!

I can see sort of a face in the clouds..not a happy face either. Have a good weekend Mojo....Michelle

Janie said...

That's a great cloud pattern. I see a horse in the bottom left. But since I'm horse crazy, that's probably not surprising.

Indrani said...

Love the caption, Mojo.

Sally in WA said...

GreensboroDailyPhoto said...

Out of this world dramatic, Mojo!!!

Hi Mojo. Nice capture. It's moving..

rhoen said...

woah! what a nice shot! lovely!

Bryan said...

Hmm. Twisted Sky I. Does this mean we will be seeing more intriguing skies like this?

It almost looks like the sun is in the jaws of a four-legged winged cloud beast. For some reason I don't think the sun would be very tasty.

Shadow said...

twisted. yes. powerful and ominous too.

luna miranda said...

looks like a giant is blowing smoke.:D awesome!
