Sky Watch Friday-Cirrus Clouds


We have had some beautiful cloud formations lately. Even though it was flat mid-day light, I still thought these clouds were worth photographing. These high wispy formations are known as cirrus clouds.

I just found your blog and I must say I wish I had found it sooner. As a fellow Pa resident with a passion for wildlife it was great looking at your photographs, you can count me as a daily watcher.
