This was my best shot of clouds this week. I just loved the detail in the little wisps all over and especially in the lower-right and the over-all dramatic feel of it.

The title "Creation" I take from the "Creation of Adam" on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. While looking at my image for quite a while, it suddenly hit me that there was some resemblance to that work of art. I loaded up a picture of it for side-by-side comparison and then saw that it only needed to be mirrored left-to-right in order to match up with Michelangelo's famous work. I didn't make that change to my submission, since I liked the balance of the image in its original form (and I'm not sure if that would have been allowed under the Basic Editing rules, anyway). I love how clouds give you the opportunity to see whatever your imagination can come up with.
