Field Study: Clouds over the Rio Puerco, 8 x 12

This is an example of how white clouds are affected when they are seen
through miles of air. The shadowed parts of the near clouds are dark,
glowing with the pink reflected light off the desert beneath them,
while their tops appear almost silvery white in the sunlight. The
shadows of the clouds fifty miles behind them, however, are almost the
same shade as the sky at the horizon, and the sunlit tops are a gray
amber. 6-1985
