Very little wind here today and I sat there for about an hour and a half waiting for this lot to drift across, building nicely all the time. Nice thing about long lenses, big clouds look big.

. . . I've seen clouds like these a lot recently and veritably salivated at the opportunity of getting a shot [if only I were not driving] Sad
