[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
If you look carefully, you can see a white dragon coming down (or a figure like Pegasus or even a seahorse) alongside the sun (or a cloud-covered earth). Hint-look at the right side. Just a 'cloud-shot' I took this on a day when the sky was gorgeous and I was visiting the Virginia Natural Bridge. It was horrible the next day, it rained cats and dogs.

PP--Not crazy about frames but wanted one here to 'hold' the white in. Sharpened for upload but not heavily. Just a simple little shot, nothing fancy. I was going to do some tricky little bubbling but it ruined the white dragon, so I left it alone. I'll put a sample in workshop. The little HP does wonderful sky shots, so that's what I was using that day as I hadn't gotten a filter yet for the Canon.

Your notes makes this capture so alive, and I read it with great interest...
perfect exposures to show all the gradiants of clouds:)

Hello Gary,
Excellent skyscape, I have always found if you stare at the clouds for long enough a recognisable shape will appear. Thanks for posting.
Regards, Roger.

Hi Gary,
Well, you posted clouds too!
Lovely, the sky, isn't it?! I like your "cotton" in the beautiful blue sky.
