Well, mist is low cloud, so here's my most recent. Taken yesterday just after midsummer dawn, from the top of a local hill with an Iron Age hill fort on it. Looking south towards the sea, over a well-known local landmark, Colmer's Hill - the one with the trees on top.

I have already removed a cellphone mast that was looming on the skyline, and may remove that rather distracting track bottom right. But I think the electricity pylons stay - they are (sadly) very much a feature of rural England.

Thanks for another promising topic-based thread, Jeremy.
Beautiful shot, Lois. Very English.

Clouds over Ben Bulben Mountain, Co Sligo, Ireland, made famous by the poet W. B. Yeats:


Under bare Ben Bulben's head
In Drumcliff churchyard Yeats is laid.
An ancestor was rector there
Long years ago, a church stands near,
By the road an ancient cross.
No marble, no conventional phrase;
On limestone quarried near the spot
By his command these words are cut:
Cast a cold eye
On life, on death.
Horseman, pass by!

A couple from NoDak.  (The jpeg conversion looks to have been brutal to the first one.)

Never really thought much about focusing only on the clouds as it didn't really appeal to me.  All the great shots here have had enough of an effect to change that, thanks for the inspiration!

Yesterday i saw this halo thing just above the fog layer where it had haw frosted.  My knowledge on clouds is limited to type and what some of them mean but could anyone please enlighten me on what this effect is called?
You can see in the second one there is also a second circle under it.  It disappeared quickly.  Sorry for the small file size but it is hard to see when it is larger.



Edit: I see, thanks for the link Mike.  Had never heard of a fogbow before.

Clouds over Carrowmore in County Sligo, Ireland, the second largest cemetery of megalithic tombs in Europe and among Ireland's oldest. Archaeologists have found over 65 tombs, stone circles, passage graves and standing stones. The site is thought to be over 700 years older than the spectacular Newgrange, which was built in 3200BC.

I agree. How about this one (colour and b&w versions):

Like you, Lois, I haven't removed the cables. They're visible and slightly irritating but I think it would be a lot of work.
