Vedauwoo, near Laramie, Wyoming

emerging from an aspen grove to a more open stretch of trail, what appeared as a squadron of alien spaceships suddenly came into view...lenticular clouds form over mountains, and the Snowy Range is only a short distance away

Space ships, indeed, what a treat to board and hover over this magnificent landscape you have provided us with. The pathway, past boulders and wild flowers and plants leading to the grove of tall trees invites trekking to summits unknown.

Things that make you go Hmmmmm.....

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

Fantastic cloudscape, this is most unusual. At first I thought it was a time exposure taken with a ND Filter. Nicely composed image by the way. Looks like a great location. "V"
