Noctilucent clouds; quite uncommon; and eerie. These were seen in 2009, not seen any this year. 2006 was particularly good for some reason.

Setting sun casts crepuscular rays through a vapour trail into a higher level cloud layer. Sadly, the picture doesn't do the effect justice - the rays were much more pronounced in Real Life.

Chris, that's lovely.  "Crepuscular" is copyright Deano, though!

Little fluffy clouds that would have looked quite innocent in daylight take on an altogether more sinister appearance by moonlight.

About half an hour after this photograph was taken, we got quite wet and there were noisy flashes and icy bits.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

That's a great pic Anders!

Mine are less so. Just fluffy ones from last Sunday's ride.

More a view of the lake than anything really but some interesting reflections and not a bad shot, for me.

While we're in France:

A French Cloud Factory. They must have been working on short time, as there wasn't another cloud in the sky.

We had quite an unusual display tonight (our snaps didn't really do justice to all the rainbow colours):
