I remember one roadtrip I took from St. Louis to Portland the first I ever
did so see those states from land and for a day or so the clouds were so
great I wondered if there was a genre like nudes and still-life called
Cloudscape if not I thought I'd make it up right there.

Will that was before the days of the internet and I just search engineer
"cloudscape" and an cornucopia of images comes up. All kinds of websites.
Some had to be translated over from whatever they were before.

For me though I'm half thinking a true cloudscape should be cloud and sky
and not tree tops or telephone poles.
But I just got my first shot of the moon with treetops.
Would that could as a moonscape?
