I couldn't decide between popcorn or cotton candy...

At sunset several days ago most of the sky was this color. It created a crazy colorcast on the ground, but the clouds were even more spectacular. I accidentally shot quite a few at ISO1600 (very noisy) but managed to get a few good ones after I realized my mistake.

My new 20D is on the way! I should have it Thursday.

Cotton Candy, Popcorn, doesn't matter what you call it, it's still beautiful! The colors look as if they were perfectly chosen by the Master Painter. Spectacular!

You couldn't imagine beginning to try and paint this, Mother Nature really does startle with her colour palette. Excellent capture.

Crazy but beautiful sky! There's always surprises from the sky. Keep your head up. Ah... now I know your 20D will arrive in Thursday. I feel so anxious for you. Can't wait to see photos from you 20D. By the way, are you selling your 300D? Just curious. Hehe!

Wow - one of the best cloud shots I've seen. The mist like part on the top of the frame and the blue on the bottom make this a great shot imo.
