Storm Cloud Pageant - East Missoula, Montana

“ .... A great sheet of heavy dark cloud, with a reefed or puckered make, drew off the west in the course of the pageant...”

- Gerard Manley Hopkins, quoted in this essay by Richard Hamblyn, which quotes from GMH’s, “The Remarkable Sunsets”, Nature 29 (3 January 1884), pp. 222-23
(which also includes a very interesting connecting note on Krakatoa's 1883 eruption and Munch's "The Scream" painting)
