Couldn't get a photo but there was an amazing cloud this evening. Underlit by the sun, reddish gold, then grey on top, but it was extremely thin and set apart all alone. Sort of like if you got a mushroom and removed the stalk, then flattened it out. Amazing.

A thread to post pictures of nice clouds and talk about them

dude i fuckin love clouds. a parallel plane of topography floating over our own. multiple floating planes in fact. with their own islands, continents, mountains. and, you have to imagine, civilizations and creatures.

whats your favorite cloud type??? even cumulus, as boring / basic as they seem, can be great when you're in a wide open space. where they just seem to multiply in all directions as far as the eye can see. like something you'd see on wallpaper but irl. a good omen too.

I don't really know about types, but the big fluffy ones out on their own, that look like delicious ice cream.

I love seeing how clouds signpost land mass when you are at sea , well before seeing any island you can see the collection of clouds hovering in the otherwise blue expanse, as you approach it feels like your looking in from the outside of your normal existence.

I did a project on Luke Howard at primary school. We were researching local Newham heroes. Luke Howard was from Plaistow. He was the one that categorised the clouds.

Another local hero was Joseph Lister. He invented penicillin or something
