Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air, and feather canyons everywhere, I’ve looked at clouds that way. Joni Mitchell, “Both Sides Now”
I am short of words this week but filled with images of clouds. I thought I would try the new photo carousel in WP. Enjoy.

You have added some exquisite cloud formations
here my friend and thank you for sharing your artistry
from behind the lens… Have a fine Tuesday…
Androgoth, thank you for visiting. I always draw inspiration from the sky.
Wow. These are great shots. I most appreciate the color in the third from the bottom in the second column. I never tire of the sky.
Thanks, Paul. The trusty iPhone helped me capture these while stuck in traffic, walking the dog, coming out of the grocery store, and driving through the park. Some things are worth pulling over to the side of the road for!
Outstanding images. I’m not a photographer, but I love a good photo …. and yes, I find sky images as powerful. Maybe I see it as a look at the heavens. BTW – Winter Sunset is my favorite here.
Thanks for visiting my blog earlier this evening. More importantly, Happy Thanksgiving. … and I will return. 🙂
Many thanks for visiting back, Frank, and have a great Thanksgiving as well!
I very much enjoy clouds- we take them for granted too much 🙂
I think you are right about that. But then comes a sky scene that takes your breath away . . .
Stunning photos of the everchanging sky!, a masterful series like this would fit well into a skybook! ; )
High praise coming from you! Thanks so much – hmmmm, a sky book?
What gorgeous photos. They just fill me with such peace. 🙂
Katie, thanks so much for visiting and for your kind words! I loved the Sunday flower thread on your blog.
Beautiful…clouds are fascinating, especially at sunrise and sunset.
And I think that their beauty and presence is so transient; stop paying attention and they are gone. Which is of course why they are so much fun to photograph!
Oops, my finger slipped on my iPad & I accidentally liked my own post! Please forgive. . .
I love the quote you chose.
And I agree, “sometimes I feel like I could just keep walking into the sky” too.
Thanks, Tinkerbell. I have always loved that song by Joni Mitchell. After I made the response to Elizabeth’s comments, I remembered that I wrote a song, entitled “Free” with a similar lyric in it many years ago -“How I’d love to touch the sky and sail into the clouds . . .” I guess some things never change 🙂
Cloud watching can be addictive, but In Pennsylvania, you have to on top of a hill to see them! Most of these were taken with my iPhone while walking my dog, plenty of hills around here. Sometimes I feel like I could just keep walking into the sky . . .
Spectacular! Aren’t clouds and skyscapes mind-blowing? A few years ago, I was painting a room for my sister-in-law with a mural of a cloud-filled sky. We both spent weeks looking up, noticing as we never had before, snapping pics. It was magical.
