The Ever-Changing Sky



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

When we lasted visited Mt. Mitchell in North Carolina, the sky put on quite a display. When we drove to the parking area near the summit, we were literally in the clouds -- visibility was definitely limited. We hiked up to the observation deck anyway, and after a while the clouds lifted and we saw some blue sky. That didn't last long, and soon white clouds, followed by dark clouds, moved back in. I got this picture as the sky was changing.

I like the diagonal orientation of the separation between clouds and sky.
