Do You Like Seeing Layered Clouds in the Sky?

Sky with Layered Clouds in Paso Robles, CA

Yesterday after I left a dentist appointment I looked at the sky and decided I had time for a photo walk. I wasn't successful in some shots I wanted of the orchards on the hills, but I did capture this layered sky. When the clouds are layered like this, I call it a lasagna sky. Do you often see skies like this where you live? What sort of cloud formations do you like best, if any?

I don't care what color the sky is, as long as it has clouds. Sometimes they are prettier as the sky changes color near sundown.

@bagarad I like when the planes and stuff make shapes as well.

X Marks the Spot in the Sky
@sharon6345 Yes. The contrails do make for an interesting sky. Here is an interesting shot taken from the car somewhere in Ventura County. See the "X" beside the sunspot.

The cloud patterns here are very variable because we can go from a cloudless sky to a thunderstorm within the space of an hour. I don't recall seeing that pattern but I guess it happens.

We saw it often when we were crossing the country in summer. It often happened in Massachusetts. It also happened when we were staying in Grand Island, Nebraska.

@bagarad I think I need to watch our clouds more closely to see if it happens here too. When I'm driving around I tend to mainly look at trees for bonsai inspiration.

I agree. They are even more fun to photograph, I think.

Some of those clouds must be chemtrails!!! I like the fluffy cotton candy ones, by the way. And I only get to see the sky when I'm outside and bored, like when I'm in car. I see the ones in your photo the most.

Some may be contrails, but I don't think all of them are. Why don't you get to see the sky more often? It's free, after all, and few pleasures are these days.

@bagarad I'm more awake at night and I'm often indoors, that would be a reason. I really enjoy the colors of the sunrise and sunset, that's something I rarely miss.

Sunset and clouds
I call those buttermilk clouds, but I got the term from someone else. I like those, too, and have lots of photos of them. This isn't my best for that effect, but I can't find the others right now.

I had completely forgotten the sky and paid much too much attention to sunrise captures. But lately I have been looking at the sky and feel they need attention too. Yours is definitely a setting that is a rare one.

I'm addicted to taking photos of them. I guess I could have worse addictions.

I must say that it is my first time to see a "lasagna sky". Thanks for the shot.

I often see them -- especially when traveling. I take the photos from the car through the windshield on those days, since my husband is usually at the wheel.

I love all types of clouds. Our instagram and facebook pictures are full of them. On our phone they come close to as many in the gallery as our fur babies. Picture I took the day before we had our snow storm last month.

Storm clouds are a special breed. I just took some photos of the ones outside my window before it starts raining again. I'm not going to try uploading any more photos where until I find out why they aren't loading.

My favourite sky has puffy white clouds. The kind that you can imagine are all sorts of animals or objects. The stacked clouds that are the leading edge of a storm are interesting to watch, but can bring some nasty storms.

I agree those are fun to look at, and also make great sunsets.

I like clear skies, except in winter. Too chilly then!

I don't think clear skies are much fun. Skies without clouds would get monotonous after a while. They make sunsets almost unnoticeable.

It's easy to get lost in the clouds, deep thoughts are optional.

We have these types of clouds too from time to time although mostly it's the fluffy, cottonwool cumulus clouds that we see.

I have seen streaks of clouds before. Jet planes can leave them.
