[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I wouldn't be sure of the altitude that this thunderstorm reached, but the cloud was leveling off, it wasn't growing any bigger.

The sun was setting, which gave the clouds some spectacular colours.

Hi Janice,

Beautiful capture and well done on the composition.
Thunder heads have been known to reach 30,000 feet.


Wow Janice! That is another great cloud capture. I just love the luminescent pinks, and the light peaking through the denser part of the cloud. Super.

Great image of the clouds here Janice. And I love it how the sun setting gives such a pretty glow to them too. Quite awesome, thank you,

Gee I did a workshop on it but forgot to comment on the photo. I like dramatic cloud shots, and this one is a great example. Good lighting on those clouds!

Hello Janice,
Beautiful top of the storm. Excellent composition. Fantastic shapes and amazing color in cloud.
Well done,

Hi Janice,
Your cloud series is so beautiful. This one is realy good with the beautiful soft colors in the lower part of the clouds and the great luminescent edges on the top. Also the haze just behind the clouds is beautiful.

Hi Janice,
Woow, powerful looking sky. Good colours and some amazing lighting, I like the wispy clouds over the top, it gives a sense of movement I think.

Les ciels que j'observe de mon balcon du 9e étage m'impressionnent toujours, mais ceux de votre série sont extraordinaires. J'aime bien la composition de celui-ci que vous nous présentez. Félicitations pour cette série, Janice.

A beautiful shot - I love the colours.

Hi girl,
This one is SPECTACULAR.
Looks like the eruption of a volcano.
That shinny pink is a real eye catcher.
Then, right on the top the light is "bursting" out.
Best of the best from Calgary from your friend, M.
