Did you know that Seattle is the cloudiest city in the country? Not the rainiest city no, but often ranked #1 for days with heavy cloud cover.
Suffice it to say, I’ve seen a lot of cloudy days in my life.
And many of those days are dull and gray, skies covered with a wet milky blanket leaking rain like today. But there are other days – when oh! – the skies are filled with billowy bulbous magical clouds! When you look carefully and see a giant’s head, a teddy bear, or monster in a spaceship, cartoon shapes floating above like a Macy’s parade!
See here now a team of horses flying above the rest – and a horned ram’s head trailing below.
A poofy ball spins across the sky laughing at its imaginary pursuer, a wisp of a cloud a fraction of its size.
Here you see the hand of a child stamping cotton ball clouds on construction paper sky and green sprigs pressed as trees.
Sometimes a tree holds up a cloud as this one did below – a fluffy ball supported by a twiggy stem to be plucked up and used by any giant nearby.
Yes you can see I love the clouds as long as a trace of blue remains. And there is always blue somewhere and sunshine too if you go high enough to find it.
As back in the day when we flew on planes taking travel for granted
always happy to be greeted by the mountain and even the clouds on our return.
Inspired to share my love of clouds by this week’s Sunday Still’s Photo Challenge.
