Coming out of the woods from a walk with the dogs I glanced up and saw this. Stopped me in my tracks, I thought- Hmm that’s impressive. Googling them I learn on a BBC iwonder site that these are called Mammatus (for obvious reasons) and says that these clouds are not clouds in their own right but an after effect of other clouds, are made up mostly of ice, and come on the back edge of a retreating storm. I just say WOW.
I have a fascination with clouds, especially when chem trails are involved. While yes there is the sinister controversy around them, graphically they inspire me artistically. Abstracts in air kind of thing, the soft amorphous forms in juxtaposition with the precise clear linear aspects.
I have been drawn to the clouds lately, I suppose when I began looking up more often at the amount of Chem trails; their long straight lines across the sky’s expanse. Then I became fixated on the dynamics of these straight line clouds juxtaposed with the “organically” shaped clouds.
Now I’m just fixated on clouds.
