* cloud watch - find a shape *
This particular prompt deserved more than just one picture. I spent hours looking at clouds trying to see some sort of shape. I spent a whole week looking, but nothing! My neck became sore and I became frustrated. You'd think the clouds would cooperate with me! Finally, finally I saw a shape. I saw Santa's profile. It was on a particularly hot day, so I know winter was on my mind! In case you need a little help finding Santa, I've added the following picture with tags.
Another good thing that came out of searching for this prompt, was a lot of sky pictures; mornings, afternoons, fluffy clouds, dark clouds, silver linings, and sunsets. I'll share a few of those with you and instead of my words I've added a few quotes about clouds.
"Up at dawn, the dewy freshness of the hour, the morning rapture of the birds, the daily miracle of sunrise, set her heart in tune, and gave her nature's most healing balm."
~ Louisa May Alcott
"Clouds blaze brilliant colors in a sky on fire."
~ Terri Guillemets
"Dark clouds become heaven's flowers when kissed by light."
~ Rabindranath Tagore
"You must not blame me, if I do talk to the clouds..."
~ Henry David Thoreau
"How sweet to be a cloud
floating in the blue."
~ A. A. Milne
"Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty."
~ John Ruskin
