This reminds me of those cartoons where there's an old dude in the sky who represents the wind when he blows.

Vertical clouds! What a terrific shot! I love them! We've had some of those here in Seattle lately, but I haven't gotten nearly as good a shot as you have here, Mojo.

That's a beautiful shot. We've had some really interesting skies this summer.

It does have the look of a painter's work, one with a fuzzy brushstroke. Nice.

Feathered is right. I would love to meet the chief who would wear such a beauty in his headdress.

Mojo: You clocked in 20 ahead of Carver and over 200 ahead of us!

Those clouds are so unusual. Don't you just wonder how they can be like that! I can almost feel the wind pushing them back, protecting that blue patch.

Very interesting feathered/ribbed skies you've captured.
The bare tree branches add a lovely touch to the picture as well :)
