SKYWATCH--Are these clouds for real? You betcha!

My New York friend, Marianne, and I took a "Manhattan and Brooklyn By Night" bus tour. Very touristy, but well worth it. I had rained, but we risked sitting on the top outdoor deck of the bus, which yielded me some good shots.

Everybody was fascinated by these clouds. If an artist had painted them, people would complain they didn't look real. People below on the sidewalks and out from apartment windows were taking photos of them as well.

They are like toatsed marshallows ready to dip the fork into. Incredible and as I always say, who needs photoshop when nature has the best palette.

Marvelous capture of the clouds!

Bibi, I believe these are known as mammatus clouds and associated with a dying thunderstorm.

Lovely sky!
