I’m not a great photographer but last week I contributed a post to #SundayStills hosted by Terri from Second Wind Leisure Perspectives. The prompt was Glacial Blue and I had some photos of glaciers from our visit to Alaska and Canada in October 2019.
I’ve managed to be able to take part again this week as the prompt was Fog and Clouds.
Whilst a clear blue sky can be stunning, clouds add such an interesting dimension to the world above us. Who doesn’t love a good cloud formation, laying down and looking up to the sky and trying to work out the different cloud shapes. Where I live, fog doesn’t happen often but living by the ocean, I love the clouds as they pass over whether they are stormy or like white cotton balls or the hazy look on a hot summer’s day. They can also look spectacular at sunset.
Isn’t nature wonderful? Watching the clouds float across the sky can be be a wonderful way to be present and in the moment. So often in life we rush through the day with our head down in concentration. Take time each day to look up, breathe and enjoy the display.
“Sometimes I go about pitying myself, and all the while I am being carried across the sky by beautiful clouds.” – Anonymous
“A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed, it feels an impulsion… this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reason and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.” – Richard Bach
Today I’m sharing the clouds from my home – my balcony, sunsets from my kitchen window, clouds from my walks along the beach and one from Alaska where the clouds and fog over the glaciers were dark and moody.
Did you know there is a Cloud Poetry Appreciation Society? You can read poems about clouds HERE.
Will you take time today to watch the clouds? Remember ‘every cloud has a silver lining’.
