SkyWatch ~ Crazy Clouds

Early afternoon I braved the heat to shift a dribbling hose,
one look at the sky and back I went for my trusty Nikon
hand-extension.
The sky to the west that first attracted my attention.



Shifting position slightly to south-west and into the deep blue



a subtle turn to south and the blue becomes unbearably beautiful
with the white clouds shifting and veering against it.



and pointing my lens straight up into the depths of the universe,
a ballet of clouds dashing and whirling over head.



Did I shift the hose? Oh yes, after I could untangle my eyes
from the wonder in the sky.

All photos enlarge and the Logo will open the skies of the world to you.

A big thank you as always to our great SkyWatch Team for looking
after us all and providing this spectacular meme.

  6. Those clouds look to be racing across the sky. Better to take pics than move the hose anyway.

  9. Ah, now there are some big blue skies to warm the heart and entertain the eye!

    Watering the garden is a favourite and much missed therapeutic activity.

  18. Clouds:
    They are beautiful as always and ever.
    Each formation none like the other.
    Over our heads they hover.
    Their glory lifting us from under
    Uniting us, not asunder.

  19. Arija..I knew when you weren't posting much that you weren't feeling well. Sometimes it seems that there is one health issue after another. The only thing I can say is that it makes us appreciate the days that we feel better... so many take it for granted. I am doing ok, thank you asking, nothing major, just the daily challenge. I do hope you feel better as you are much loved in the blogging world...Michelle
