Here’s a “two shot” that intrigued me.
It was captured last weekend as part of another photographic-poetry project’s take.
Once again, “probing the heavens” with a telephoto lens “bagged” what otherwise would have been missed by the naked eye.
A sweetly inspiring sunset,
thanks to a “town hall gathering” of cumulus clouds
with a perfectly orchestrated cirrus set, dashing overhead.
But let’s pull in a lot closer . . .
A nearly perfect circular “cumulus fractus” formation that actually appears
to have been extracted from the cloud layer above it.
(See the negative/void shape upper right of it?)
I see an “Eye in the Sky.”
Hey, that’s “Santa Claus” hiding behind those trees!
White bushy eyebrows and all.
Cloudspotting is fun!
Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of The Cloud Appreciation Society claims
that cloud watching is the perfect antidote for fighting “blue-sky thinking”
and that it may in time, as the ranks of “official” cloud-watchers grow,
threaten the livelihoods of psychoanalysts the world over.
F U L L D I S C L O S U R E :
I am a badge-carrying and certificate-bearing member of
The Cloud Appreciation Society.
My “election” to its membership occurred 2AM EST on July 21, 2010.
I was the 22,443-rd person to join worldwide.
(For a measly few pounds sterling, consider gifting yourself or a loved one
and join in the fun, while learning reams about our Goddess Mother Earth’s
life breath and ever shape-shifting heavenly countenance.)
