Clouds Over Cambridge MA

Each day nature puts on her free show in the sky. Sometimes with clouds, sometimes without. But the show is reliable. When there is no sun the clouds perform alone in shades of gray. With the sun it provides a spectrum of colors. Here is one day's show over Cambridge MA on August 16, 2011.
