No secret on my end, I’m obsessed with the weather. Clouds are my favorite because to me, they are artwork in the sky. I spent many lazy summer afternoons in the backyard with my mother staring at the clouds and figuring out what animal or object they represented.

So, naturally, I love it when James Spann posts cloud pictures. Various types of cloud structures or object-driven clouds.
