stunning cloud formation,
like a symphony orchestra :)
Thank you Lisa. We’ve had many days of clear blue, so a few clouds can be a welcome sight for photos. Mel is correct on the name which I had forgotten… Mare’s tails. Symphony of musical tones … yes.
They certainly do look as if they are painted by the wind gods Dick…how absolutely gorgeous!! :)
Not too loud Tracey … I was standing here and there in the First Christian Church Parking lot, during their Sunday morning services. I like to think it is the angels rushing off to a place where they are needed … riding on the breaths of the wind gods. So very glad you used caps on my name there. I might have thought you know of a pervert wind god with an artistic bent… ;) May lightning strike elsewhere…
“clouds painted as only wind can” …lovely view, DickThe sky is one extraordinary canvas, beautiful shareSandra x
Usually they are stretched out only a little bit but in some places it was very long… Really speedy mares I reckon. It is a lovely canvas Sandra. Thanks.Dick x
Love these, we get them in Autumn too. I think they’re called Mare’s tails, but I could be wrong! Beaut shot, Dick!
Thanks Mel. Yes I do, now, remember that name. It is correct. It always feels like white paint strokes to me. I have some painting experience you know… 3 dozen walls at least, mostly with a roller of course, and normally in an off-white….I saw them while driving home from my friend, Steve’s house, today. I was borrowing a 1D Mk II body and prime 50mm to play with in Phoenix in a week. He is selling it for another friend, and we both think I will buy it. Low miles… But he’s having back surgery in a few days so any selling activity will happen later after recovery. I want to try it on some grand-daughter portraits, so must do some studying… Cheers.
WONDERFUL IMAGE….SPLENDID EFFECT OF THE CLOUDS THAT RUNNING…
Thank you very much Anna. Happy to have you stop by now and then… Dick
Thanks Robin. It was interesting to see, and leaves me wondering how much I must miss from not being outside very much… The recent days out have been wonderful in regard to the sky. Good to notice since winter is coming with the associated grey days…
WOW !!!!…Wish I was floating up there…such a beautiful capture
I think it would be interesting in a balloon for example. I suspect that is the Jet stream above that pulled those clouds to stretch them that way. It is mother nature art too. Practice strokes…
A great way to view it….hope you are well
Yes am well, on holiday. A visit with family, and relaxing.
Awesome capture rjcolby.
Thanks Julie. Would have been a bit humorous to watch me running around in the church parking lot trying to get various parts of the sky without the tree tops or minimal at least. The lens was wide so you end up moving back from one tree or another to make them relatively shorter. Then to miss the mid-day sun… I felt the car tops and church building would, in a small space, say something about the environment.
Amazing… like ghosts passing by. Love your verbal appraisal… painted by the wind. Your latent poetic being has been stirred, mate.
I used to watch a TV show, on the PBS channel, on painting. So I guess bits of that idea linger, and I have seen practice drawings on scraps of stuff. I’d expect even the sky/cloud painter might need to just practice now and then…
