"Cloud Series: Above and Below" began many years ago as flying cross-country on assignment became a monthly occurrence for me.

I gave up the aisle seat for a window as dramatic cloud formations drew my attention and lens. While other passengers had their noses in books or computers, I realized I was capturing vistas that almost no one else was seeing. Cumulonimbus. Cirrus. Stratus.
Textures of clouds, texture of the clouds in contrast to the landscape.

The series graduated to encompassing formations also from the ground.

These are selections from the series.
