LOVE! the layers of puffiness just seems to go on and on forever! And the changing light...I get just a hint of it on the grass in the first shot - then POW!! Great shots!

I don't know what a 40mm pancake lens is, but if it takes pics like this I'm sold. Great shots!

Both shots are absolutely beautiful! Time IS such a gift, 5 minutes and BAM super love the warmth in the 2nd one...

Just amazing how quickly the sky can change in just minutes. In the mornings I've started taking camera when taking Chet for his first stroll around the block after missing some beautiful sunrise shots in just a matter of minutes.

Just love the light you "uncovered" in the second photo, Brian.
