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?
