Cloudscaping

Sure, I too am a little tired of the all the time-lapse photography on the internet these days. However, my love for clouds (I’m a long time member of the Cloud Appreciation Society) had me going gaga over this video called “Test D” by sixdegreesbelowthehorizon. Be sure to go full screen with this one.

The Boards of Canada soundtrack is pretty sweet also. If you like that, check out sixdegreesbelowthehorizon’s video Dawn Convection.

Big Blue Marble

NASA has recently published highest resolution image of the Earth from space ever. The 64-megapixel image of Earth was captured by the VIIRS instrument on NASA’s most recently launched Earth-observing satellite, the Suomi NPP. You can read more about the Suomi NPP at its official website.

Make sure to see this sucker full size to really appreciate the details and download it for your desktop. We all live in a beautiful place.

Castle In The Sky

Last Monday at twilight, a large cumulonimbus was hovering over east side of Denver. As an official member of the Cloud Appreciation Society, I went out to snap a few photos of this beauty.

Castles In The Sky

As always, click for a larger photo and more can be found on my flickr page. I wasn’t the only one to notice this castle in the sky though. These other Denver bloggers caught photos too:

  • Cocktail Hour (the best Denver photoblog out there in my opinion)
  • Brofax (another great Denver photoblog)
  • Future Gringo
  • Little Things Are Big
  • Socialist Dilemma
