These can’t be from our recent Perth skies, and certainly not this May! Be honest now…
That aside, they’re definitely worth a look…and a look…and a look….and, oh gee, where’s the afternoon gone…where’s my bloody life gone?!
They’re from a couple of weeks ago, Glen, so technically they’re late-April skies—but close enough, right? Just make sure you have a pen in your hand if you’re going to disappear into them!
Wow. I could have sworn we hadn’t had skies like that for a long time – either soggy cumuli or no clouds at all. Clearly, your reminder to look up comes at just the right time for me.
Do you like to get the window seat on aeroplanes so you can look at the clouds? 🙂
Glad to be the cause of someone looking up 🙂
Re planes: no. I’m afraid of flying (not exactly phobic but…) and have to imagine I’m in a hotel room with a very small TV and not-very-good food.
Now, these pictures are W O N D E R F U L. I speak as someone who photographs the sky almost every day, and the ocean almost every week. These are skies full of story, skies to dream in.
Thank you, Marilyn! I think there’s an army of us obsessed with the sky, and you’re right, there’s always a story to find.
Extraordinarily beautiful , one looks like feathers falling xxxxx
I love that impression, Debi 🙂 xx
These are lovely skyscapes. Are you familiar with Coral Carter’s daily cloud entries. She’s racked up between 1 to 2 thousand and shows them on FB. She seems to be affiliated with a group that does similar things. Might be good to contact her.
There are a lot of us similarly obsessed, I think, Peter! I’ve been skywatching for years and I put a few photos on FB. I’ve seen some of Coral’s there.
Feathery clouds, shredded clouds, the clouds which precede winter clouds. And “Polishing Clouds” is a favourite pastime of mine i.e. Cloud Watching.
That’s a lovely way of describing a lovely pastime. Thanks, Marlish 🙂
