Sky Variations

Some cloud “shows” are too fascinating miss.

Some move faster than others.

There can be “mountains,”

and distant “hills.”

Looks like this one wants to definitely be seen.

 The sunlit edge of the cloud adds variety to the gathering clouds.

The clouds start gathering and look like they’re trying to fill the sky.

These pictures were taken earlier in the summer.

Clouds to Admire

I went out in the backyard yesterday afternoon for a walk around the yard.

I didn’t expect to see mountains of clouds. Some of the clouds were partially hidden behind trees in the east and south.

The clouds continued to grow and expand.

 Some of the clouds were only in the south and southeast.

It almost felt like they would pass over me, low enough for me to touch or disappear into.

It would’ve been nice if I’d been out watching the clouds approach and forming.

Being outside, alone, it almost felt like I was in them. Like they were a gift.

Foggy Morning

Recent warm temperatures, 3/4 inch of rain yesterday and then freezing temperatures last night, made for a foggy morning. Buffy and I headed out early for a hike on Eagle Mountain.

Farm fields bordered the road going east.

Here we were nearing the mountains. They aren’t actually mountains. Eons ago they were faulted up 4,000 to 5,000 feet tall and have eroded down to over 900 feet in some areas..

and little higher yet as we neared the turn to Eagle Mountain road.

IMG_4138 redI particularly like the colors of the orbs resulting from the positon of the sun. I’ve been taking orb pictures at night lately and found these fascinating.
