Often, where I live there are several cloud systems at once indicating different climate conditions. This one shows a huge cumulus nimbus cloud east of the foreground stratus clouds. Cumulus clouds are spectacular and can rise to 40,000 feet in the air! They indicate volatile air currents. When they flatten out at the top they are quite dangerous, especially for pilots of small planes. This one reminded me of an iceberg. The foreground darker lower stratus clouds are closer to the coast and denser...could be rain soon? The color of this series is very late afternoon or early evening....not quite the "golden hour". As with most of my work, these clouds are complex and multi-layered.
