Looking at the first three photos from David Woon here today, gives you a good idea of the vastness of Lake Superior...you can see for miles and miles, even with the low ceiling of clouds hovering above the Lake. Looks like there was a rainstorm going on out on the water, too. David's fourth photo is back on land, where it looks like the weather is about to turn nasty overhead.

The last photo comes to us from John Malone, showing us some puffy looking clouds, illuminated by the sun. I'm not certain what type of cumulus clouds these are or what they indicate as far as the weather, but they sure do look pretty all lit up against the deep blue sky.

In the first 2 photos, it looks as if it's raining. These are some awesome pictures. Love the puffy ones in the last picture. I love cloud pictures, and I have to say that we've had ample opportunity to take quite a few pictures of them this month. We've had our share of storms, that's for sure.

Thanks for sharing!!

Awesome shots

The third photo, "Sun and clouds" reminds me of a Van Gough painting. All of these shots are incredible. Thank you David and John!

It is too bad that there is not a "like" button on here for the great comments that are shared. So I just hit the imaginary one for Dunerat, Alex and Capt. Paul. Great photos and very interesting comments as well.

Capt Paul, could not have said it better! These are awesome!

I have always loved watching the clouds over water. When I was a kid, my grandparents would tell me legends of how the mercurial moods of the the gods were what caused the amazing clouds and storms of the North Sea. Then my father, ever the scientist, would explain how the moisture content of the air, the pressure systems in the area, and the different types of wind currents caused the clouds. No matter which way I look at it, the sky, the clouds, the water and all the intricate ways Nature works makes for beauty.

Fantastic photographs. Thanks for a little view of heaven.

Good pics. Speaking of storms, we had 1 around the Traverse City area about 1 o'clock this morning.

Speaking of big storms, I don't know how many of you follow the Chicago to Mackinac yacht race every year. There was a big storm last night near Charlevoix, MI, that wreaked havoc. One boat had its main sail ripped in two. But, the tragic one was the WingNuts, a boat from Saginaw, Michigan, that capsized. Six of its crew of eight were rescued by a competitor boat. But, two, including the captain, were in the water for hours before the Coast Guard recovered them. They apparently died of head injuries sustained when the boat capsized. The two who died were from Saginaw, Michigan, the first fatalities in long and storied history of the race. Three were from Midland, one from Chicago, etc. If you are interested:
