A “Santa Claus Eye” in the Summer Sky

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.)

    I get the break from mother Cumulus, but do not see Santa. but best of all was the comment regarding blue sky therapists

  2. Simply beautiful George.

    All I see when I look up into those majestic
    cloud formations is erotic shapes. I have tried
    everything to cure me of this phenomenon, but
    of no avail
    Do you think I need professional help or just
    enjoy the view?

    • Chuck:

      You are FINE … In fact, I believe you are probably healthier than most of your peers … EROS holds many levels and values … What good are we aging folk without tending to that “spark”? … Also, at it’s deeper level, EROS is the archetypal energy of “connection” in the highest spiritual sense and the life force energy …

      Stay away from the therapist couch and keep your eyes pinned to the heavens — that is when you have spare time from dazzling the watercolor block with your bounteous offerings …
