Cloud chasing again...

Roger asked me if I wanted to go for a drive...of course I said yes.
It had been overcast part of the day and bright and sunny part of the day, so thought we might get some interesting skies before the day was done.
So we headed south, to a place called Merom Bluffs. I was hoping with the air being clear that I might get some photos I liked.
Merom Bluffs is approximately 20 miles south of Terre Haute and are high above the Wabash River. These photos below does not really do it justice, but I got to concentrating on the clouds so much I forgot the original intent of going there.

I am not how far we can actually see from up there, but I am sure it is miles. Probably 5-10 miles at the least. And you look down on the Wabash...thinking about how it was a major route of travel for pioneers.
Then on the way home, I photographed these clouds as we were heading north. I thought sure we were going to get a major storm but it cleared up without anything but a few big drops of rain.

Rose, I did the same thing today. It has rained for days and the white fluffy clouds today were too beautiful to pass up.
I love all of these - even the dark ones!

Great pictures. Your land is so flat. Wish those clouds could produce enough rain, come our way and get stuck over us for a few days.

Wonderful! I never get tired of clouds and sky that looks like that! The Wabash looks great. It is still very high around here, I think. We had a couple storms in the last few days.

I'm all about chasing some clouds. Sounds like a great adventure, even if you didn't have a huge storm.
