dancing with the clouds



gazing upwards from the yard to the west as the wind picks up
feeling the humid rhythm of the raindrops
clouds begin to move across the sky


bec


as I turn to go . a group of clouds to the east move to the beat of a different breeze
I pause in the yard with arms outstretched . a standing ovation to the sky

those are some really cool clouds! You know, I think I like a few clouds in the sky than a clear blue, cloudless sky. They are so fascinating!

I love those "Second Coming" clouds as I always think of them where they are illuminated by the sun but, like others, I find the clouds in the last photo so unusual, beyond puffy.

Diana Shearer said...

Becca said...

I love that sky!! It's rare, but occasionally in the summertime I'll see a sky similar to this here in Las Vegas...usually smell the rain about to happen...love it!

gorgeous but to be honest i've just about had it with the whole cloud/rain thing.

becky said...

Wow, the puffs of the last picture are truly dramatic! I haven't seen anything but gray overcasts and full sun for the last month...no clouds with character like these :)
