Clouds & Colors in Paradise

In both fall and spring, the weather in Paradise Valley, MT, often provides multiple layers of clouds, with the ones above the mountain peaks moving North while the clouds below the mountains move South. In this case, I was enjoying the mix of fall colors in the grasses and Cottonwood trees set off by the layers of clouds with the mountains across the valley occasionally peeking through.

The clouds really make this shot. Your composition gives a nice sense of Montana’s vastness.

By the way, Mark, is there a reason that comments on weekly challenges don’t show up under “latest”?
