WORD-A-WEEK: CLOUDS

“I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now.

Joni Mitchell

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

Rabindranath Tagore

Well, I suppose I may be the last to respond to Sue’s Word-of-the-week challenge “Clouds”.  Like the rest of the bloggers who responded, I love clouds.  There’s nothing more appealing to a photographer than a beautiful sky.

Whether an oncoming storm across a wide western sky, or curiously-formed wind clouds in Patagonia, there’s something that calls to us about an angry or a brilliant sky.

I could go on and on, but think I will stop with these few – after all, you’ve already seen more clouds than you knew existed, right?!

The sky, a perfect empty canvas, offers clouds nonetheless.  They shift and drift and beg interpretation… such is the nature of art.

To those of my followers who have seen some of these photos before, my apologies.  Sometime you just gotta go with what feels right 🙂
