Evening Clouds

I went for an evening drive and am I glad I did. The closer I got to home, the more dramatic the clouds became.

All the following pictures were taken from my front yard.

I’ve occasionally seen cap clouds (pileus clouds).

The cap results when a moist current of air is forced over a growing cumulus cloud.

soon to be followed by another one forming.

The cloud shapes, enhanced with the shaded areas,

continued to change.
