Clouds from both sides for Ed’s challenge

“Bows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way.”  ~ Joni Mitchell

Oh how I love looking at clouds! Like snowflakes, each one is different and totally unique. They’re ever-changing, and we never get the same one back again. Maybe that’s why they are photographed so much. Here are just a few that have caught my attention over the years.

I’d better stop now, before I get too carried away. You’ve probably got the message though, that I really do love clouds.

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend, and if you’re up in the frozen north, do keep warm. My son sent me a photo of his house yesterday. No clouds, but tons of snow to shovel before he could even drive up to it. I feel quite guilty down here in Florida, with temperatures in the high 80’s.
