Alien Invasion or a Cold Front?

I don't normally take photos of the sky.
But, these clouds boggled my mind.
baked my noodle.
messed with my head.



Donny said they were a fleet of alien ships set on invasion.



They look like long fingers or icy knives to me.



The layers of colors, the long, pointy shapes.



They're a work of art.
Nature's beauty often astounds me.

Just had to share.

They're amazing! I've never seen cloud formations do that. They're generally much more random. I'm glad you took pictures. Wow!

Little momma had the 'same' photos. I think it's amazing. Kinda eerie, too.

icy fingers would be a good analogy, too. *shivers*

I'm going with alien invasion. Those 'clouds' are just freaky. I assume you've been abducted by now - I'm running down to my basement.

:D

Kat said...

There always seems to be aliens at the Texas word tangle house. Maybe that is where the hormones lie in wait. Pretty freaky...whatever they are!
