Cloud Dragons in the Fjords of Norway

A first attempt at this. I'll tell you, it strained my patience to be able to stand still long enough to do this.  I did about 7 or 8 of them, but I kept thinking they would not look good, and quit too soon.  These bands of clouds snaked along the mountains all afternoon of the day we arrived.  We had a view much like this from our hotel room.  If you're familiar with the dragons of Japanese calligraphy, you can sort of see where they got their ideas in these clouds.  They just add a head on one end and some legs, and you've got your dragon emerging from the mists.
