I went out shooting the other night, which was quite productive. This was actually facing away from the sun, so there was a lack of contrast, but a very smooth, calm feel. The clouds have been so smooth and buttery lately, something we don't get a lot of here in the valley.

Those are the San Tan Mountains on the left horizon. They are a bit larger than they appear in this shot.

Yep, very nice clouds and a good exposure.

Still could use a more distinct foreground... I envision silhouettes ;-)

I love the smooth texture and color of the clouds - very well named!
