The cloud colors of one of the four sunsets enjoyed on the voyage were remarkably pure and rich in tone. There was a well-defined range of cumuli a few degrees above the horizon, and a massive, dark-gray rain-cloud above it, from which depended long, bent fringes overlapping the lower cumuli and partially veiling them; and from time to time sunbeams poured through narrow openings and painted the exposed bosses and fringes in ripe yellow tones, which, with the reflections on the water, made magnificent pictures.

At the edge of the cloud there was a brilliant white patch, like a turning page catching the sun. The rest was dove grey with a subtle hint of purple, just enough to announce the coming sunset.

Today the clouds are white marble on blue satin, dove grey underneath and brilliant white where they are thin enough to let the light through.

This morning as I rode the bus to the office the sky was blue, only sporting a few wisps of white cloud. They formed almost neat lines above, being dragged by a wind I could not feel. Now as I come to leave the stressful monotony that is my work behind for another day, and claim some take-out on the way home, the sky is a blanket of grey. Only the merest quantity of the fading sunlight is getting through, truncating the daylight by hours, casting us into the grey shadowy world that isn't due until almost nightfall. I hold out my yet ungloved hand to feel for the rain-drops that I think I just felt on my cheek. It's just a smattering for now, I can use my umbrella as a walking stick, it's soft clacking noise lost against the roar of the traffic.

High, ice-crystal clouds which look like wispy curls of hair, often the first signs of approaching weather changes. they block the king of heat from reaching the sky.

Clouds swollen with snow. Black clouds hung over the rooftops like malevolent angels.

Clouds drift with icy, unnatural slowness. Clouds race across the leaden sky with it's tumbling vapours. Ragged edges of stony grey clouds. Cumulus cloud blocking the sun from view, edges glowing and as white marble against the darkening sky.

Cloud deck lowering, slate grey clouds, darkening cloud deck stretching out as far as the eye can see, cloud resembling a black torn wing, dusky region of cloud, flocks of cumulus.

The clouds were lazily drifting across an otherwise perfect forget-me-not blue sky.

The sun was streaming through a break in the clouds in great watery shafts of gold.

The darkness of the film is a gloom that permeates every aspect of script and plot. Clouds loom in the sky, every shade of monochrome from sliver though storm grey leaving gaps only for the black night. Against the cars with their running boards lean the men, faces partially obscured not only by the lack of light but by the rims of their fedoras. The only glint in the blackness comes not from the moon, but from cigarette tips like crazy red fireflies born to die.

In just minutes there will be a reason for the homicide cops to cordon off the area, but not yet. Soon more dark painted classic cars will crawl out of the black night. After some wise-cracks and a negotiation that was never destined to succeed, the shoot-out will begin.

The clouds were grey, ominous and threatening,they were rain clouds and nothing like the fluffy white cotton-balls of the afternoon.
