Skywatch #49


Little Chafield Wiltshire, originally uploaded by duopastorale.

Why is it that I find clouds so endlessly fascinating? On my recent trip to Wiltshire I just kept looking up and saying, 'there's so much sky!' There's something wonderful about being able to see right to the horizon and 'seeing' that other world beyond. Surely 'the heavens declare the glory of God'.

And I wished you had a wonderful Easter Sunday celebration.

I too am totally gaga about clouds and this is my kind of open space landscape. We don't have so much of it apart from farmers fields, being a very forested and hilly country, so I often find myself at the seaside to get such photos.
These are magnificent. Lovely composition and photograph.

Clouds, like snowflakes, are never the same, endlessly fascinating.
Nabeel said…
I find clouds fascinating as well. It's probably the science behind it ... but take away the science, and it's nothing but beautiful
