      Oh wow - that's awesome.

      I love clouds, love the patterns they make, their contrast against the blue, the play of light and shadow around and through them. Sublime.

      Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

        Thanks. That's about six wide-angle shots, stitched together. The front was coming in fast, and the clouds were truly awesome. I needed the whole sky to capture the immensity of the approaching storm.

          I think it's nice that you will be joining them considering your own faith is based on fear and not love.

            You are quite deranged.

              I should go up there more often.. haven't been up there in over a year now. It's beautiful! I guess we don't always appreciate what we have when we live so close to it? That pic you posted from your part of California was pretty stunning!

              As for looking over the edge.. I have a hard time getting too close to it myself! One unfortunate fact is that the area of Beachy Head is, according to statistics, the world's number 2 suicide spot. But we try not to think about that.

              It's actually a part of what is now the South Downs National Park which runs 87 miles from the town of Eastbourne in the East across the south of England towards Winchester and covers an area of 628 square miles. The South Downs themselves are a collection of rolling chalk hills.

                  This was taken two nights ago in London. There were some very bad thunderstorms all over the country and I think this shot looks pretty awesome with lightening getting close to the London Eye...

                    I think that's very true, we sometimes forget the beauty we have around us because we're too familiar with it.

                    That pic you posted from your part of California was pretty stunning!
                    That's upstate from me, but I've been through there often enough, and thanks. California has so much natural beauty and it's so diverse... beautiful coastline, mountains and desert and rolling inland hills and flatland. It's pretty awesome, I have to say.

                    Oh, that's a terrible thought.

                    Very cool. Thanks, and that was such a great photo.

                      Pleasant is only having to remember he's even here once in blue moon when someone reposts his nonsense.

                      Very nice.

                          I haven't taken any of these pics myself but they're all from places I've been to.

                          How about this one from the Lake District National Park in northern England?

                            This is a bit silly, but kinda cool, if you can do it. I was riding back from Iowa, with Mrs. B driving. I noticed low clouds going back to the horizon. It occured to me that we were running parallel with them and that if I took two shots, I'd get stereo pairs with about 1/4 mile separation, which should make the clouds visible in 3-D, which ordinarily we can't see.

                            Stare at them and cross your eyes. It helps if you pick out one detail and try to get the two images to merge at that point.

                              Here's a thing that just happens to me but you can make happen if you aren't the sort it tends to happen to. Look at the bridge on the left. Now look at the back of the arch and think of it as the front of the arch.

                              If you do it right imagine what my reaction was when it simply happened to me driving toward it.
