In my hobby of soaring, I grew to love to look at clouds and cloudscapes.  When in the sailplane, I was able to fly under (and over) clouds and examine them in details. The type of cloud gave clues to the soaring conditions. Cumulus clouds are the thermal soaring pilot's favorite, expecially with flat bottoms and high tops. Lenticular clouds indicate wave action in the atmosphere, etc.  I could go on but I will just view the cloud scenes, I have imaged, in the image gallery below.

The wide open country side of Alberta gives a grand location for spectacular skies filled with clouds, lightning, and Aurora. See for example Alberta Skiez by Sean McCormick
