Thanks Eileen and Susan.

No Susan, orographic clouds occur wherever there are mountains and wind. They are precursors to the fabulous lenticulars that we get to see from photographers up and down the Rocky Mountains.

They are getting longer Rodney, we are up to 6 hours now! :) That still means we have 18 hours of night though.... but it is changing rapidly, almost 6 minutes a day now.

Thanks very much my friends!

I am surprised there aren't more people taking night shots, it is very rewarding. Really an untapped photographic opportunity.
