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.<br><br>
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.<br><br><br>
I'll start it off with a poem,<br><br>
The fairest things are those which live,<br>
And vanish ere their name we give;<br>
The rosiest clouds in evenings sky,<br>
Are those which soonest fade and fly.<br>
-Mary Russell Mitford, 1811

Clouds are awesome! I'm an especially big fan of when they take unusual shapes:<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.veggieboards.com/content/type/61/id/44011/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="44011" data-type="61" src="http://www.veggieboards.com/content/type/61/id/44011/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 395px"></a><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.veggieboards.com/content/type/61/id/44012/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="44012" data-type="61" src="http://www.veggieboards.com/content/type/61/id/44012/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 281px"></a><br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.veggieboards.com/content/type/61/id/44013/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="44013" data-type="61" src="http://www.veggieboards.com/content/type/61/id/44013/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 280px"></a>
