    1. Nothings beats the painting skills of Mother Nature who specializes in painting on the cavases of the sky.

      Thank you for your comment. More sky photographs are in the pipeline. Stay tuned.

    1. The scientific explanation of why clouds have a certain color is indeed interesting and a lot more. Never paid much attention as to why the sky was the way it was. Thank you Linda for the link. As I’ve said many times before, there is never a dull moment in the world of photography.

      “As a light wave’s length increases, its energy decreases. This means the light waves that make up violets, indigo and blue have higher energy levels than the yellow, orange and red.”

      Now I know why the sky had this beautiful combination of colors based on the wave’s length and its energy. Soon I will post several photographs with orange clouds; meaning that they have less energy than the violet, indigo or blue skies. I’m learning every day. Great!

  1. Hola Omar,
    The wave length above violet is ultraviolet and that is sufficient energy to burn skin even through the clouds. Folks often think that a cloudy, cool day on the beach is safe only to discover hours later that without sunblock they may have a very severe burn.
    The wave lengths above ultraviolet are not in a human’s visual spectrum but we know them as microwaves and their energy level is a great way to quickly boil water to brew the morning’s cup of coffee.
    I just wish here in north Texas that we could see the sun through the storm clouds to get colors other than grays. It could be that our summer is already over for this year?

    1. Hola Jim and Nena:

      Thank you for your perspective about the energy of wave lenghts and their effect on the physical world. Much of this is stuff is sometimes too complicated for my simple mind. But it is true, I’ve seen severe skin burns on people spending too much time at the beach under a bright sun.

      The same is true of the energy of microwaves. Never thought much about it until you mentioned it. Maybe it’s because these waves are invisible to our eyes, yet their results are evident, like boiling water for a cup of coffee.

      I was under the impression that you also got these fire-looking clouds in Texas. Lately, I’m fascinated at the colors of the sky. In the past, never even looked at the sky. Retirement has given me a brand new perspective of our immediate reality. I love it, as you well know.

      Thank you for your insightful comments.
