That's experts on real clouds in the real sky, not the virtual cloud, although it's not impossible that an expert in one kind of cloud could be an expert in the other.
I took a number of photos of these clouds near sunset on 21 December 2015 in Johannesburg and would appreciate your feedback on what kind of clouds these are. Not only am I curious about what these clouds are, I find them extremely beautiful, and the setting sunlight on them was memorable and mesmerising.
Back to identifying them!
I think they might be partially-formed mammatus clouds. We sometimes see mammatus clouds in Johannesburg before thunderstorms - and our thunderstorms are typically ferocious. Here's a dramatic example of well-formed mammatus clouds from one of my favourite feeds, www.earthsky.org:

在大连有条路叫滨海路， 每天都有许多的人开启健康生活方式， 来滨海路绕着海边徒步旅行。
In Dalian, there is a road called Binhai Road. Every day there are many people who start a healthy lifestyle by sea and hike around the seaside.
Binhai Road was built in 70s, is a strategic road, ends by the army guarding. In early
Home should be a perfect place to rest ourselves. Many of us live in buildings with flats similar to a honey bee.
How do we relax? Some of us watching tv, some in good company, some smoking weed...
The perfect combination for me is a good company and beautiful garden. Especially in the summer garden can be a perfect place for the rest and relaxation.
Here are some photos of my garden where all of you are invited for a beer.
we had dozens of roses; some of then I dismissed with my ball but we still have plenty of it
The vast majority of scientists believe that temperatures are getting hotter as an average in the world, the debate mostly comes about whether it is manmade, or a natural cycle of occurrence that we can do little to stop. I am going to purposely leave what I believe out of this article, because In my opinion it shouldn’t matter which side is right because economically cycling out fossil fuels is a better option. While it might not seem that way now, I want to explain why this is the case.
The major benefit for fossil fuels right now is the cost and the efficiency brought with that cost. As it stands gas,oil, ect are extremely cheap and the average person needs to do little to actually implement their uses in daily life. Solar which many people claim as the best alternative is still, for the most part, expensive and requires implementation of upgrades and work into modern houses to be used properly. This won’t always be the case though
I started this oil painting a few weeks ago. The thing about oil paint is that you have to let the paint dry between every layer otherwise the color might mix up and you have to start over on the area you were working on. I can't say that I am very good at oil paint or acrylic paint but I am always learning and that is the best thing about being creative.
As an artist you never know when the painting or drawing is finished. Sometimes you start again on a project you thought you were finished with. I don't know if I am going to start on this painting again. Maby I will, but I'm posting it anyway.
I don't have much exprience with oil paint. I've maby done 10 paintings through my life. But I am pretty satisfied with this one, enough satisfied to post it here on steemit :)

My next unforgettable meeting with the paradise of our planet-Crimea. Yalta.
From the territory of Yalta you can not see "Swallow's Nest". But it is necessary to see it, if not for this high rock, then it would be seen from Yalta nest - the truth, from afar. Swallow's Nest is a symbol of the South Coast architecture: the castle, stylized as a medieval knight, was built in 1912 by the architect Sherwood.
If someone wants to get into the Middle Ages - go to the Crimea 😏 Here the palaces of the khans with the castles of the emperors and the manors of the nobles and counts are beautifully combined
I am with my mother. I, as always...
Vorontsovsky Park around the palace deserves special attention. About 200 species of trees and bushes were brought here from a
As opposed to the common notion, snakes do not attack humans intentionally. Rather they try to keep themselves as far from humans as they could.
They only bite humans when they feel cautious for their lives.
Just give a chance to snake to get away and it will easily crawl away from you.
Today I have compiled a list of 3 beautiful but deadly snakes.
1. Rattle snake.
One of the most famous yet deadly snake is rattle snake.
My all-time favorite trip was the hike to Mt. Krn. This peak played a strategic role in the World War I on the Isonzo front. Strolling through these hills and mountains is like stepping into the history - trenches and bunkers are still here to see! In fact, the path to the top of the Mountain Krn is a military path or
muletiera in Italian (the mule path - called so because all heavy load was transported to the top with mules).
It was a long way for me, being used to maximum 6-hour walks but I was determined to conquer it. We started off in a small town in the Soča Valley at the altitude of 189 m (620 ft) and our goal was the peak at 2244m (7362 ft). Soon after the start, we met this beauty along the way.
As we were rising, nature was getting more and more beautiful, as expected: limestone rocks covered in moss and other Alpine
Some fascinating caves all over the world has caught my attention while looking up our own caves in my country. Here are just a few of the many with mesmerizing beauty. I picked these because they were unusual.
**This cave in Naica mine has the largest selenite crystals in the world, about 300 meters underground, some reaching 4 meter in diameter and 11 meters long, weighing as much as 55 tons. The
Hello. It is @hunhani.
Today, I deliver special stories that you can enjoy at the full-scale eco-campus, UNIST(Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology).
Here is an eco-friendly campus that is located in real nature, and the endangered natural monument lives.

The most recently higlighted endangered wildlife is the Natural Monument No. 330 Otter.
¿Y si hubiera una manera de devolverle a la naturaleza parte del espacio que le hemos ido quitando poco a poco?
The Italian architect, Stefano Boeri, made it possible. An amazing vertical forest that has become a model for a sustainable building. It's a project that contributes to the regeneration of the environment and urban biodiversity that doesn't need the expansion of the the city for making it true.
“The question of questions for mankind — the problem which underlies all others, and is more deeply interesting than any other — is the ascertainment of the place which Man occupies in nature.”
We like to think that we base our beliefs on evidence, but some may notice that far more often we arrange the evidence to fit our beliefs. Distorting or excluding what won't fit, seeking out evidence that will, and surrounding ourselves with others who affirm them

As you all loved beautiful yet deadly, this is the second part of one of the most beautiful yet deadly snakes.
In my last post, I shared some facts about three of the most dangerous snakes of the world which were: rattle snake, black mamba and death adder.
In this post, I will share some information about three more dangerous snakes, whose bite could kill you easily and some wild herbs that could help in case of a snake bite.
The picture that Thoreau's novels paint of American life is not a flattering one, and much of what their characters have to complain about, Thoreau talks about, too: “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.” It’s probably the most famous line in Walden and describes Bartleby and Ethan Frome and Bellow’s Tommy Wilhelm and even Pynchon’s Oedipa Maas pretty well.
Unlike the novels, however, Walden tries to offer a solution to the problems they describe – a carefully planned and precisely costed working-out of Bartleby’s famous motto “I prefer not to”. Walden is a book about what your life would look like, how you would fill your days, how your relation to the world would change, if you didn’t have to spend money on real estate. “The necessaries of life for man in this climate may, accurately enough, be distributed under the several heads of Food, Shelter, Clothing, and Fuel…”

A Whistling Village where a tune is a name !!!!
A person's name is to him or her sweetest and most important sound in any language. — Dale Carnegie
How damn right he was.
Let's say, On any given day, on the way to office or gym, you just happen to bump in to your friend, say bob?
and You just greet him ‘Hey Bob. What’s up?’
and after the exchange of pleasantries, you both go your ways. A very normal interaction. No second thoughts to it... well that’s the way life greeted each other since a long long time. Right?
How would it be, instead you just called him “ koooho kooho” or “ ooola oooola “. In all probabilities that would be far from a normal exchange of pleasantry. Your friend might as well wonder what you were high on ....Just saying
Well obviously It’s not funny. it doesn’t sound right and moreover it sounds damn insulting
**What if I told you th
So I finally made my first two posts since being back on Steemit after 8 months of traveling and planning/prepping for Eden 2.0!
I am super stoked to be back here and reconnect with you all!
As I promised in my first post since being back I would write a recap of the 8 months of being away and being purposefully on the down low.
First, I want to make a post about why I am expanding and developing Eden 2.0, which is the reason I have been traveling for months in South America.
For anyone who does not know, I founded The Garden o
