An Evening of Mammatus

A friend once remarked that he saw me walking down the street one day with my head up. Not in a "keep your chin up" sort of way, but really looking up into the sky. I told him I was most likely looking at the play of light and shadows, especially on the colorful building façades, something I always seem to be doing.

Three evenings ago these mammatus clouds quietly rolled over the city. Had I not looked up when I did I would surely have missed them because they were gone in a matter of minutes. Anyone who has ever seen this particular cloud formation up close and in person knows what an eerie, surreal ambiance it creates.
