As naturalists and possibly even (outside of mosquito season) naturists, we love a nice big sky more than anyone. You can find them out here in Washington, thank goodness. One of my favorite pastimes, I might even be so bold as to call it an avocation, is cloudwatching. Which means, at least to me, not just spotting Aaron Sorkin‘s face in a cumulonimbus, but also knowing what a cumulonimbus is in the first place, which is to say, cloud indentification. To their credit, their is one site I consider my go-to source for help ID’ing all types of clouds, an that’s TypesOfClouds.net. It’s no small feat to document the myriad types of clouds alongside nice big juicy high-res pics to help those of us who stare too long at the sky and can’t see a bloody thing when it comes to little LCD screens. So if you fancy yourself a cloudlover, then I’d say typesofclouds.net is worth a look. Learn something, be amazed, share in the love of clouds, and enjoy!
