Skywatch Friday - Old Buttermilk Sky

Altostratus (mid-level) clouds.  We call this a buttermilk sky, or in England, a clabbered sky.  Old Buttermilk Sky is also an old song by the great Hoagy Carmichael, but of course you knew that.  If not, give it a listen HERE.

I didn't know it was called a Buttermilk sky - but what a great name to go with your lovely shot.

I much prefer "buttermilk" to "clabbered" sky - I hadn't heard of "clabbered" but I used to dance to Hoagy Carmichael's song - when people danced properly and not just jigged about :-)

Will you join me in the next foxtrot?

I never know how to call my sky picture and I'm definitely borrowing the expression!

Lovely depth.

I didn't know this was called a buttermilk sky... but now that you say it, Bill... of course! Super capture. I'll have to go listen to that tune when my internet access is a little faster.
