I would include you in the artist batch we have here.  Many of your images have been wonderful. Not everything I have done is great. Frankly, I get impatient to move on to the next project quite quickly.

Hmm..perhaps a sandstorm..possibly something else :) The file contains the clouds, light and camera.

Good one, Freelancah! And those sand ripples look great.

freelancah, this is looking great; and, thank you for the file. I would like to see the sun as a large disk (no corona) with a thin dust cloud (sand storm) diffusing its light. The sand ripples look very good; and, maybe they could be combined with Tangled_Universe's ideas for smoothing them out a bit - something to try.

The ripples are made with a method described by David Burnett in this thread http://forums.planetside.co.uk/index.php?topic=843.0

Re: Cloud Library - Volcanic Plume

Modified my contrail and finally got it to work in the Y direction properly.

Anyone know how to move this thing around. Have to admit a bit of newb when it comes to functions, however in the simplest terms if I wanted to locate this effect over one or more different volcanos how do I move it? Ideally it would be just moving the whole thing intact?

Another nice thing would be to elongate the trail quite a bit, can anyone steering toward the right nodes to be messing with?

Thx for the link!

Sorry all obviously don't post much. This question was in regard to the volcanic plume.

Thanks Martin, was this coupled with your night background?

Yes, Bob, a slightly different one that I've posted before, just fixed luminosities and colours. That's why it doesn't use RTE. The background node shows no stars if it does.

Thanks Martin, when I saw your image, my visualization started generating and gave me some ideas for a future project ...much appreciated.

On two rare occasions, I saw clouds like these here in Arizona. Both were connected with high altitude rocket tests and occurred after sunset. One was from Edwards Air Force Base to our west; the other from White Sands New Mexico to our east. The rocket trails left what looked like clouds and were illuminated by the sun which was below the horizon.
