Clouds 1 – Nathan Gallagher

Clouds 1 – Nathan Gallagher

Clouds outside an old abandoned sugar mill in Longmont, CO at sunset.

These clouds are likely a combination of mostly stratocumulus and a few altocumulus clouds. Below is a skew-t diagram taken approximately 1.5 hours before this image was taken. From the skew-t diagram, we can see the clouds are forming around 5,272 meters above sea level. This would place them in the range that mostly stratocumulus clouds form (based on the flowvis guidebook), which corroborates the claim that these are stratocumulus clouds. As the skew-t diagram shows a cape of 0, these clouds are stable. This makes sense as these clouds are fairly flat.

    The vertical aspect ratio of this shot really highlights the diverse set of clouds in the photo. I also really enjoy how the silhouette of the mountains get lighter and lighter as the mountains get farther and farther away.

    I really like how the aspect ratio makes this look like one of the diagrams we were given with all the different types of clouds in one slice of sky. The color gradient is also really nicely muted.

    I really like the aspect ratio and the gradient from warm to cool as your eyes move up the image

    The variation of clouds along with the framing of the mountains and the sun is really interesting. I like how you cropped the image to cause a cool color variation, especially highlighting the cloud around the sun.

    I love the rays of sunshine that blossom through the silhouetted cloud. The higher clouds are also very well illuminated from the sun. It makes a great contrast.
