Photo taken 8/27/2022 4:24pm from top of 2nd Flatiron, looking east. iPhone XS, edited with darktable. Uploaded 10/5/2022.

Below: Skew-T diagram for Grand Junction, 00Z 8/28/2022, which was the closest to the time/location that this photo was taken. The clouds are likely to exist around 5900 meters because that is where the dew point and temperatures are closest. The CAPE value at this time was 366.9, so at the time the weather was slightly unstable. The clouds in this photo are probably cumulus and stratocumulus clouds, and are pretty standard for this location/time of year.

    I like the height advantage that you had in this image, it looked amazing.

    I really like the spot you decided to take this picture from, being up on one of the flatirons really opened up your framing options and I love getting to see the huge scale of these clouds over Boulder.

  • Timing and location are just perfect. I like the contrast of the colors.

    I like the framing of the image, the trees surrounding the frame really add a lot in my opinion

    Great vantage point from the top of the second flatiron. The clouds are excellent. I would have liked less distraction in the foreground (trees) and a rotational crop to make the horizon level. I miss the weather from this time of year.

    I really like the lighting in this image– it’s cool seeing the light tops of clouds and the shadows below, especially on the ground. Great snapshot of afternoon clouds!
