It was a drab day, so I substituted clouds from a less drab day.

Michelle, thanks for your comment on my photo "His Highness." It gave me an opportunity to look through your gallery, an excursion I've thoroughly enjoyed. This is only one of the photos I'm taken with. The quality of the light here is exceptional and it makes us realize how much beauty there is in a scene we might see often and perhaps take for granted.
