For some reason I just cannot stop taking pictures of clouds!
I went on a journey of 6 seconds to snap this one.
Backed out of my driveway, drove one block to the edge of town, made picture, drove home.
Total time investment about a minute. I don't even think the commercials had ended in the football game I was watching.
Normal people from around the world are wondering why I drove one block instead of walking.
If I was normal I would not live here anyway!
Consider this. The last time I went for a 30 minute actual walk around my town five cars stopped and the drivers asked me if I needed a ride.
One actually drove up a few feet then backed up and said "Are you sure?"

I understand your fascination for clouds completely Jeff. I make a lot of cloud pics too. Nothing like this thus far. How unusual and beautiful. Next time ask Fred Flintstone for his car. It’s a walk while you seem to drive ;-). BBV

amazing cloud patch reminding of a Zeppelin, or even a whale...and to think how little time and effort it took to capture such a memorable certainly are an efficient shooter..
