    I was napping when this happened. I’m so glad several people captured it on film…especially you because A) your vantage point is different and B) you are such a phenomenal photographer. Thank you for these.

    Wow! I could just sit outside and stare at the sky all the time if it looked that beautiful.

      Me too 🙂 It was a little chilly, though. And these types of clouds usually come with wind.

    These photographs are beautiful! What fantastic shots.

    I love the different colours and shapes. Over what length of time did you take them?

      The time span over the photos I posted was about 10 minutes. I started taking some photos earlier before they got colorful. I think my friends and I were out for about 25 minutes watching the sunset.
