  1. I do love me a cotton ball sky and those birds need to line up (though they were probably in mid-shift) and that starry sky is so beautiful.

  2. Altocumulus of dawn are beautiful! I enjoyed all these images, Tim. I did get to see the growing crescent moon yesterday after sundown, beaming a sideways smile through a hole in the cloud cover. Snow coming later this week.

    • Thanks, Lavinia. Snow was forcast at one point, but no snow at the moment We have had 3/100th of an inch of rain this month.

  3. Ah, there’s the Pleaides! Now I know what to look for. Even with our city haze, on occasion the stars shine through. There was an opportunity to see the yellow crescent moon descending through some clouds and then Orion when they cleared on Sunday night. Your skies & clouds are the best. 🙂

  4. Read your title too quick and thought it said Cottonball D”o”wn and was anticipating some reference to Watership Down and bloody rabbits… no such thing ha! If you are not familiar with that book (my favorite), DO not watch the horrible acid-trip movie adaptation – that director should should have been flogged. Those cranes need to go to Goose School to get those V’s tightened up.

  5. Those are cotton balls!
    The stars at night… I took a pic of Charlotte’s gown (what there is) in the dark. The sequins look like stars in the dark.
    Good grief, everything looks like gowns to me! xx
