Thematic Photographic - #296 Cloudspotting

"The more we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction." - Rachel Louise Carson, would have celebrated her 107th birthday today.


Carmi, from Written Inc. blog is calling for Cloud-spotting, as our theme.

Oh the very 
mystery of stately
white clouds 
sailing calmly 

Cotton candy clouds of dogs and dragons in swift-flying motion towing their shadows ever quickly.  What once was a bunny, breaks shape to form something new.

Clouds rejoice our souls!

Beware the ever changing weather, it can be read upon the sky.  Summer storm clouds can quickly blacken any sky, as these monstrous clouds overhead. Quickly they churned out of the west in fierce procession, but luckily moved on without so much as a drop of rain!

I'm waiting for that perfect shot of a cloud shaped like a dog.
Great words to go with the shots.
