I've been reading a book, "The Invention of Clouds" and it is awesome. I always enjoyed looking at clouds, but never gave them serious thought.

But that is silly! Clouds are incredible and beautiful. I feel clouds deserve an appreciation thread all their pwn for photos of, poems about, and discussion of clouds.


I'll start it off with a poem,

The fairest things are those which live,
And vanish ere their name we give;
The rosiest clouds in evenings sky,
Are those which soonest fade and fly.
-Mary Russell Mitford, 1811

Clouds are awesome! I'm an especially big fan of when they take unusual shapes:
