The Joseph Cloud

Yesterday, as I was driving around with my family, I saw this cloud. I was rather amazed at the colors in it as I have never seen a cloud with a rainbow in it. I stopped the car and jumped out quick, fearing my opportunity wouldn't last, and snapped off a few shots. I had to do two exposures to get the colors in the clouds to come out without underexposing everything else.

As I was processing this photo and uploading it to Flickr, I remembered the story of Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors.

Hi you have very wonderful pictures. I love the point of view you take when you take these pictures.

I like how instead of just taking a picture of the sky to get the cloud, you framed it with the fence. Very cool!

BTW... Thanks for posting on my blog!

Thank you for the comments. They are very appreciated.

I'm just getting started out in photography... I have been learning to look at more of my surroundings to see what I should and shouldn't include in the picture. I like rust as it gives a nice texture and adds some color, so I wanted to include that. I should have tried to straighten it some. I guess that's my next area to work on.

And you're welcome. I've been quietly looking through your blog for a little while now. I was going to post a comment on your "MEN" entry as I thought it was rather funny.
