    A late afternoon low sun angle and some virga to create a prism made for an interesting image. Pentax K5, DA* 50-135mm f/2.8, 135mm, 1/125 @ f/11, ISO 100, a little PP in LR 4.2.

    Welcome, Steve! That's a very nice image. I don't remember seeing anything quite like it. Great texture and tonal range in the clouds!

    Lovely composition Steve. It might be my monitor, but I'm seeing a "graying" overall? Anyone else see it?

    I love the angles of the light in the cloud itself. Very cool!

    Welcome Steve! Thanks for posting.

    Virga -via wiki

    In meteorology, virga is an observable streak or shaft of precipitation that falls from a cloud but evaporates before reaching the ground.[1] At high altitudes the precipitation falls mainly as ice crystals before melting and finally evaporating; this is usually due to compressional heating, because the air pressure increases closer to the ground. It is very common in the desert and in temperate climates. In North America, it is commonly seen in the Western United States and the Canadian Prairies.
    I didn't know either. Here for one post and already giving new tidbits. I think I like Steve!!!!

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I suppose I ought to have put a little explanation of virga in my post. It's a common phenomena here in the western US and I'm just used to seeing it. Or I could have just said, "Made you look!"
