Early Morning Altocumulus Clouds

Sky Watch Friday


Altocumulus Clouds
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

The sky over the leeward side of the Hawaii's Big Island was covered by altocumulus clouds early this morning.  I took this photo at 6:09 AM today, just after the sun rose above the mountains to the east of where I live.

Those clouds look almost like somebody sprayed them on like that popcorn stuff they used to spray on new home ceilings. Wow. An impressive captire.

My Sky Watch Friday blog is at my Canon Pixels blog. If you have time I would appreciate your having a look at the sky peeking through the oak tree leaves.

Interesting clouds. They look like they were all one piece and then someone tore them apart. Happy Sky Watch!

Lovely! I think I must watch out more often. I haven't been able to capture an Altocumulus cloud yet.

I was wondering earlier this evening in my journey through SWF why there aren't more sunrise photos. I guess we're all busy starting our day or sleeping. Thanks for reminding me how beautiful it can be.
