Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Clouds

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge this week is ‘Clouds’.

Here are clouds hovering over the city of La Paz, the capital of of Bolivia. At an elevation of roughly 3,650 m (11,975 ft) above sea level, La Paz is the highest capital city in the world. We’d just flown into El Alto airport which is even higher, at an altitude of 13,323′ and I was definitely feeling the effects.

The clouds around the lighthouse in my old hometown of Umhlanga South Africa, where at sea level my body is happiest.

Here in Florida it’s pretty flat too. No wonder the clouds fall into the water at our local nature reserve.

  1. Great photos all, Sylvia.
    I find the clouds in your nature reserve photo intriguing – are they reflections or just really really low??? Fascinating!

  2. I still giggle like a schoolgirl everytime I hear of Lake Titicaca… πŸ˜€

    When will I grow up? Hopefully never enough to stop giggling like a schoolgirl everytime I hear of Lake Titicaca!

  3. There are different looking clouds in these pictures. Each gives different feel to it especially I like the reflection of them in the water. It makes the water looks like big pool of soft cotton. You want to jump in.

    • Thanks so much, YC. Yes, I remember the day I took the last photo. It looked as though one could walk out over the clouds on the water. It wouldn’t have been advisable though because of the alligators 🐊😳

  4. I was wondering how you were feeling at that altitude. I understand that some visitors to Machu Picchu must take oxygen with them on their ascent. I LOVE these cloud photos – they remind me of exploring in the early 1900’s. Can you imagine tagging along with Hiram Bingham when he first brought this remarkable place to international attention? And speaking about tagging along – I love following your travels. I feel like I’m there with you!
