Cumulus Humilis, Everglades

Benign but mildly sheared cumulus clouds drift placidly over the Everglades -- Florida's little estuarine version of the Great Plains. While living in Miami, I made many short trips westward into the River of Grass, finding a large element of the same solace and immersion in the spaciousness of sky as I would during springtime sojourns to the high plains. John Anderson's Seminole Wind plays in my mind when I look back at this image; unfortunately, I never saw any tornadic supercells out there.
