I don't really know what to call this one, and it probably won't float anyone's boat; the sight was just such a surprise I ran for my camera. A bank of clouds, standing like frozen surf, stretched the entire length of the north peak of the Sandia Mountains (guessing 8 miles). A proper capture would have been 4+ frames stitched into a panorama, but the powerlines intrude, so I had to be satisfied with one shot. The clouds are orange due to the halogen lights of the city. Neutralizing WB made the moon and sky too blue (10:42 pm, hours past the Blue Hour).

Not a grab, per se, but thanks for looking, Anthony. This was the best (though not really worth posting) of 4 shots, with two shots layered to get rid of flare. Intentional, personal, and certainly a waste of a bunch of time. It was better in person.
