Plus a few cloud shots at sunset from the other day. I shot these with the White Balance set to cloudy and it really bought out the colours.

Very nice images. Good idea switching the white balance over to cloudy. The colours are very rich. There's a nice sense of cloud motion in image number 1. Thanks for sharing.

I'd never thought it was a monkey (#4) if you won't say it   Cheesy :lol:

Very nice shots. Great balance of colours, forms and a sence of depth  Smiley
