Two of my blog friends expressed the same fascination and love for clouds that I have. And yesterday, as I was looking through my photo’s for something to post on my beetle- blog, I realized how many pictures I’ve got with clouds featuring prominently, and I decided to do a cloud-blog today.
Sunset clouds, sunrise clouds, storm clouds, cold front clouds, they are all there! 🙂 These photographs have been taken over a few years (the ones shown here are from 2008 to now), not from the viewpoint of a photographer (which I’m not!), but just as a very enthusiastic cloud lover, and even more enthusiastic picture -taker, so please don’t expect masterpieces!
I’m starting off with this very weird picture of something I’ve never seen before – the actual edge of a cold front moving in over the area. To me this was worth a few pics, although they are far from special as far as photographs go! (I don’t even know if one could call this a cloud?) 🙂
This next picture was taken one evening on the way home. I had just picked my son up from rugby practice and when I saw these clouds I literally stopped next to the road to quickly take some pictures.
The next few were taken at home. I would be busy doing whatever, and I would look outside and see a storm brewing, or the sun catching clouds in a certain way at sunset, and I would grab my camera and run outside and madly snap away!
I’ve got another pic taken from this same spot, but it is SO different, SO dramatic and intense, that I decided to do that one on its own in a future blog.
I’ve been sifting through all my pictures for the best part of this afternoon, so I’ve decided to finish off with this next picture, which, OF COURSE, was taken on the farm just over a week ago. It was at dusk, on the day that we off-loaded our cows, and I loved the soft, peaceful feel this picture has, even though it is probably the least ‘picturesque’ of them all! 🙂
Whatever you see here, has not been edited in any way (except for their size), as I don’t have Photoshop or anything like that.
I am melting in intense heat, and I’m fervently wishing for some clouds gathering right now, bringing the mother of all storms, so we can just cool off a little bit!
Until next time, if I haven’t melted completely into a puddle, keep well!!! 😀
