THESE WERE TAKEN LAST SATURDAY ABOUT AN HOUR AFTER SUNRISE AND ABOUT FIFTEEN SECONDS APART. THE FIRST IS OFF THE EAST OF MY DECK AND THE SECOND WAS POINTING WEST. THE CLOUDS REMINDED ME OF SAND DUNES.

Sand dunes- a perfect description of this sky-- beautiful. Almost every night the sky "puts on a show" for us. Mickie

Great to see these, they are so like my rippled beach sands in my MY WORLD post. Just fancy having them reflected upward on the other side of the globe.
