Rarely do I get to take cool photos of clouds at night but thanks to the almost full moon back lighting this cloud (the Full Corn Moon was on September 6th) tonight I got my chance. This cloud looked just like a shark swimming around the sky. This was hand held and pretty much straight our of the camera – I cropped it a tiny bit.
I love clouds … all kinds of clouds. These clouds were so low it looked as if you could reach out and grab them but I’ve actually seen them even lower were they’re actually sitting on the ground. I think they are attempting to shroud Sandia Mountain but the mountain is doing a pretty good job of peeking through.
One of my favorite things about Albuquerque and I guess all places with mountains …. is when the clouds make shadows on the mountains. This is the Sandia Mountains and they border Albuquerque’s east side. For the past few days the clouds have been doing a spectacular job of making shadows on the mountains.
