Weird clouds off the coast of New England.
One of the many things I love about living on the coast is the rapid change in weather and how it can go from sunny to stormy, and back again, in no time. There is something so majestic about those dark clouds appearing over the horizon and seemingly racing towards you.
I especially love the beautiful and sometimes strange cloud formations and vivid colors that often come before and after these changes. It’s amazing how different the clouds can look from one day to the next, and I can (and do! :-)) spend a LOT of time shooting cool and weird clouds. It’s pretty wild that all they are is water drops or ice crystals and dust particles with just the right lighting. Nature never ceases to amaze me!
Below are some that I’ve captured over the past year. I only know the name of one of these cloud patterns – the Kelvin–Helmholtz clouds: that really cool formation that looks like breaking waves, and supposedly inspired van Gogh when he painted “Starry Night”. If anyone knows what the others are called, please share – I’d love to know!
