My best day was years ago when the sky was full of those big marshmallow/ puffball shaped clouds. They were all of even size and nice and separate and I just picked one after the other and melted them clean away.
I know the sceptic will say if you watch clouds they'll melt away anyway. This is true but when you're on a cloud-melting mission, when they're all fairly even sized, you pick one out and it disappears in a matter of a couple of minutes and the other ones haven't changed an inch, you know you're really doing it. You really know.
I'm no good at it now, I've lost the focus but I regularly get the kids to have a go. I plan to get this on camera one day.
Another thing I've noticed is with those high up frosty looking clouds. If I watch them for ages they'll turn proper
lenticular, saucer shaped. If I see one and ignore it it'll dissolve or spread out but if I stare it always turns saucer shaped. Clouds ARE wierd,
there's definitely more to them than we know about.

cool, I will have to give this a try...
First one in Sept 02 the second one was last year. The 02 one started off as nothing in the sky but a very thin curved line (looked like the top of a bubble) and grew into the saucer shape. I filmed the whole lot on video and took this still from it. Not a good photo but it was a 99% perfect layered saucer apart from the fraying at the right hand side as the wind attempted to blow it away.

A better trick would be to will it to NOT fade away. It would appear that the Sun is able to “dissolve” small clouds without the help of my willpower.

I'll need to try this someday when I'm outside and bored. I do pay a lot of attention to the clouds anyway.

Sweet post lightseeker.
I must admit I am kind of skeptical about doing this and having it actually work, but nonetheless I am going to give it a go.
I'll post my results here.
