Still back on Earth… still cloudy, so I decided since God was giving me clouds, I’d make cloudade… err… pictures of clouds! I know, I am bored! But thats okay. I hope to get some more lightning shots if weather permits… funny, I usually say that about Moon shots or constellations! If you want to use one of these pictures as a desktop background, please e-mail me and I will get you the correct size.

Again, all pictures taken with the same specifications as mentioned in previous posts.
Scorpius & the Milky Way – Sprewell Bluff – Thomaston, GA (07/01/08)
The constellation Scorpius along with the Milky Way Galaxy. Within the Milky Way, several other features are noticeable, such as M7 (Ptolemy’s Cluster) and M20 & 21 (Trifid Nebula).
