Cirrus in the Sky (Skywatch Friday)



High, wispy cirrus clouds seem to fly across the sky last Sunday at Marion Junction, a community west of Selma.

Often called mares' tails, the resemblance is achieved from patterns of ice crystals high in the atmosphere.

After a stormy Friday and rainy Saturday, this sky was more than welcome!

Hi again....you were thanking me for the camera settings. I wanted to tell you that my iso speed was 200 and the aperture was 5.6...I wanted to get more pictures but the clouds came and covered up the moon. If you try some shots, try different settings...I did get one other shot that I could use adding fill flash but two others were just black.

Greetings from deep south Texas. Thanks for coming by. I am a native Mississippian by birth. I lived in south Mississippi until it came time to find gainful employment. I still go back and wander the back roads every few years. You have a very appealing blog. I'll try and come back soon.
