    These cloud pictures remembered me a some line by William Wordsworth “I wandered lonely as a cloud / That floats on high o’er vales and hills, / When all at once I saw a crowd, / A host, of golden daffodils.” What do you think guy?

    Mind blowing, very exceptional piece of cloud pictures indeed!! I’m feeling about space astronauts, how excited they were while catching such breathtaking pieces!!

    Awesome. I love seeing different looking clouds like this. The hurricane clouds are so thick and powerful. I’ve come across some pretty insane pictures of clouds before. I think the photos with the multiple swirls are pretty neat.
