head in the clouds

7.29.2010

Even though I'm some what scared of heights, clouds fascinate me. It seems that I'm constantly looking up in the sky. (In fact, while photographing clouds, I've run into objects more than once. Oops.) 
Cumulus, stratus, cirrus...and probably my favorite of all - cumulonimbus. There's nothing quite like the feeling of seeing dark, thick clouds swirling about the sky, indicating a coming thunderstorm. 


During our drive down to Texas a few days ago, I became bored. Having finished the book I brought along (being a fast reader isn't always a good thing ;)) and tired of listening to my iPod, I leaned back in my seat and stared at the sky. I was amazed at what I saw. From puffy, castle-like clouds to heavy layers of grey clouds, I had a wonderful time looking at them.  


Before long, I found myself searching pictures in the sky. I discovered an old lady sitting cross legged eating a bowl of soup and a llama leaning over a fence among many other things. (Yes, these were very detailed clouds. Or maybe my mind was a bit over imaginative? Hehe.)

Yes, my head is often in the clouds. What about yours?

  1. I often get transfixed by clouds and their shapes. I recently did a post on my blog that had about four cloud photos. My favorite clouds are either the huge fluffy white ones or the ones that threaten a storm but you can still see sun shine peeking through them :)

  2. I love clouds they are always so pretty! :) Even if a storm is coming. And I always see weird shapes too- HA. But yours was quite detailed.

    And when there is a storm, but there is a beam of sun shining through- I think of God. :)

    Love, Makay

  3. Yes I have my head up in the clouds(: although I think I like the night better because I'm in love with stars. My favorite clouds would probably be the big old fluffy ones.

  4. My head is ALWAYS in the clouds! In two different ways! My favorite kind of clouds are the ones that you see in a plain. When you just see the sun shining over them making them a light pinkish orange! have you ever been on a plane before?

  10. These are beautiful. Do you contribute to Skywatch Friday? I'm not sure if I have a link for it on my blog or not (I need to add one) but it's all about photographing the sky. I took pictures yesterday while I was on an airplane. The sky and the clouds looked incredible.
