    If you were in Las Vegas yesterday, you would have noticed this lone cloud in the sky. It started out small in the western sky and continued to grow throughout the day. After work, I grabbed my camera and headed to Calico Basin. The first shot was taken at 5:00, the 2nd at 5:30, the 3rd at 6:00 and the last one was taken at 6:10. All of the images were captured from the exact same spot. All I had to do was watch the drama unfold. Happy Friday everyone!

    Magnificent cloud cover, I love where the rocky tops are in a silhouette.

    Great shots that would make a wonderful sequence in a slide show.

    Tasty sky show - amazing you got to play with it for so long and some delightful colors as the sunset progressed.

    Thanks Alan. It was quite amazing how long it stayed around and became even more beautiful by the minute.

    That is sure cool Ryan!

    How interesting that you could just watch it all day long continue to grow. Each of your shots is different, but each has a unique aspect to offer. Great work.

    Neat looking at the progression. There are different things I like about each of them - but the intense color in the third hits me the strongest.
