Pictures; almost no words.

Last night, Peter and I went to liberate some of the gazillions of snails that have taken up residence in our aquarium. Semi-unwittingly, we chose the sweet spot between thunderstorm and sunset. In the space of about half an hour, this is what we saw. (God, I love living where I do.)

(NB: the odd orange/pink/blue variations had nothing to do with a failure of my camera’s; they occupied the sky together. All I did was pivot and point and shoot.)

Snails: be free!

    Alyx and I were also admiring the sky that evening. Spectacular!

  • Laura pointed at the sky while we were watching TV. It was golden and shining. Never having seen anything like it, we ran outside. It changed completely in a minute, like a kaleidoscope. We went back in for our camera, but few of our pictures are as nice as any of yours though. Thanks for helping us commemorate the great Toronto Cloud Show!

    So interestingly enough wired did an article on types of weird clouds. I’m by no means a cloud expert but some of those look like they could be mammatus clouds… then again I never quite had an artistic eye. BUT! for more fascinating cloud pics, check this out! :)

    Also, snail liberation is what life is all about. When I was younger I used to go out after the rain and rescue them from the pavement by violently chucking them into the bushes. I am confident a relatively high number of them survived the experience.

    Do you realize you took a picture of a deity?! #21!
