My love affair with clouds


“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” ~Rabindranath Tagore

Anyone who is a Facebook friend of mine or follows me on Instagram knows about my love affair with clouds. Few things in nature fascinate me the way that clouds do. They are Mother Nature’s very own Rorschach test. If you and a friend are looking at a cloud formation, chances are you’ll both see something completely different. In this respect, clouds are the most subjective thing in nature.

Another amazing thing about clouds is the fact that they are ever-changing…literally every second. A cloud formation at any given moment in time is unique to that moment and that moment alone. I mean how romantic a notion is that?

Do you take the time to appreciate the beauty in the clouds?

  1. Oh Keith I love clouds too and you are absolutely right everyone sees a different thing I love that.Beautiful shot. Is that a bunny rabbit?:) B

  2. I too am fascinated with clouds. Here on the Caribbean coast in Mexico, the cloud formations are breath taking.

  3. I've been noticing clouds lately. What a great and clear sky you have. It is not like Asian cities and perhaps not like New York or San Fran either.

  4. I love the beauty of the clouds Keith, I used to lay in the grass with my oldest and point out what I could see and she would do the same... I have been thinking I have missed out on that with my Valentina... I will remedy that... you are right the sky changes in seconds but it is always interesting :)

  5. Clouds are amazing, especially when you can pick out animal shapes.

    ReplyDelete
  6. An approaching storm is pretty amazing, like a thunderhead. Although the rings of an approaching hurricane are just downright impressive. Like a spaceship is about to fly overhead.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I am constantly amazed at the beauty of cloudscapes. I have to admit to being pretty rubbish at finding images in them, but they are nevertheless breath-taking! Even flat grey-white skies are seldom that flat or grey-white and they create such a wonderful light that brings out the colour in everything in a way that cloudless skies don't.

  8. Anyone who has not spent time on their backs being amazed by clouds has not lived fully.

  9. I love them, aren't they forever changing. Yes Keith, I agree with you, precious things they are.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Keith, your post reminded me of lots of things about clouds but three in particular.
    1. As children we would lay on our blankets under the shade of our big mango tree and imagine the what shapes the cloud formations represented. Such fun and imagination.
    2. Learning at school weather related knowledge about clouds, fascinating!
    3. The very first time I saw clouds from a plane, the sight still thrills me.
    It's interesting too that many childrens first drawing aside from stick figures is the sun and, clouds!
    Have a great week Keith.

  11. ah i do love me some clouds....nothing like laying in the grass looking up at them and picking out shapes....luckily my kids like that too...flying into clouds is pretty amazing too....

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love looking at clouds. I've been known to look up at the sky as I'm walking... and then bumping into things, obviously! Twilight clouds are particularly beautiful, but bright white clouds on a deep blue sky are striking! To answer your question, apparently yes I do appreciate clouds quite a bit :-)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Clouds are awesome!!! I love looking at them and seeing what they look like!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. The changing formation of clouds is fascinating. As an artist I constantly see shapes in almost anything, wood is also where you can see the most amazing things.

    I think a book of photographs has been published on the wonderful images clouds make!

    ReplyDelete
  15. clouds are like the solar system. amazing and mind blowing. can't quite wrap my brain around them!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Gosh yes, I do...every day!
    I have been fascinated with clouds all my life. I have even been known to turn to them as an oracle at difficult times in my life when I've needed guidance. Their "advice" is amazing...and always accurate!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I kept a sky journal for years but recently dropped it because all I see are chemtrails every day. I loved the sky at night too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I do it every day, each evening I go to my terrace and enjoy watching the clouds :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love watching the clouds. No matter the season there is beauty to be found in a cloud.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love clouds as well. And sunsets. In South Africa, I kept taking pics of the sun setting because in each moment, it was unique and special. I so get this.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love these photos so much!!! i'm obsessed with clouds too :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm forever pointing out the beauty of the clouds or a shape in the clouds to my hubs who thinks I have totally lost my mind.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I barely notice the ones that float above me

    ReplyDelete
  24. Clouds are one of the most completely fascinating facets of nature. As you said, they are ever-changing and never the same. Although clouds are supposedly white, they have an infinite array of color tones - from the sun, the light, shadows, and time of day.
    I also love to see clouds gilded by moonlight.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am forever looking skyward - I could fill my blog with cloud pictures I take that many. If you don't have your camera with you every minute that unique formation is lost forever.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love looking at clouds--the way the sunlight plays with them in the morning and evening is the best, in my opinion!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love clouds, especially at sunset, or when the air is still near the ground but the clouds above are rushing by, like a vaporous kaleidoscope.

    ReplyDelete
  28. abso-frickin-lutely! every day! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. We usually have terrific cloud beauty here, and I love to take some time just to appreciate it. Thanks for the reminder!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh yes - I could gaze at clouds for ages! Wonderful shot.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love clouds, too. I love the different shapes and the way the light reflects off of them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've noticed the fall clouds are particularly beautiful at this time of year! as is the moon.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes. And in the color of the trees, and the smell of roses, and the blue of the lakes...

    ReplyDelete
  34. i love watching the clouds glide by:-) my mum used to make me (and probably my siblings) look at the clouds like they did on winnie-the-pooh, which was nice! x

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm not on "farce book", but love clouds as well ... images so perfect at times ... even more perfect than Duerer;s or Michelangelo's paintings ..

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love clouds. I could watch them forever... I could fall into the sky... Your photo of clouds is very beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Honestly, I haven't really paid attention to them that much. Probably because my head is in them most of the time ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm with you my friend...however the clouds are currently raining...literally on my parade.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I watch "Strangest Weather on Earth" (Weather Channel), mainly because bizarre and strange clouds are most often the featured stories.

    Just last night I learned about a 600 mile (!!!) cloud that randomly rolls across a part of Australia--only in Sept or Oct--called the Morning Glory. It was totally amazing, like a monstrous rogue wave only in the sky.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Absolutely! It reminds me to keep looking up ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hubby and I were at Lake Pontchartrain watching a sunset on Saturday and I kept pointing out all these things I was seeing in the clouds. He never saw what I saw. I always say the clouds are God's paintbrush.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I always take in the clouds. I often try to see if they form something. I saw a post a while back where a cloud looked like an angel.

    Have a fabulous day. :)

    I adore cloud watching.. And do so often laid on the ground
    My favourite card is this one

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh yes. From the comfort of my hammock, I search the skies for familiar shapes. You are right about how they don't last long and often they morph into an entirely different form. I love the constant changing.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yes! I love clouds and the sky in general! It's different every day, but always beautiful. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Clouds, sky, blue, grey...it's all fascinating. I totally hear what you're getting at with the fascination with clouds. They're pretty mindbogglingly amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Can't say i have a love affair with them but i do take notice, ever changing indeed

    ReplyDelete
  48. I really don't appreciate cloud formation. That is a very romantic notion that they change every second. Thank you for pointing me to the sky. I need to look up more often.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I am forever making shapes out of the clouds. I thought I was one of the few adults who still do this. Thanks for letting me know that I'm not alone :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Clouds, the ocean, and fire. Any of those three I could sit and study for hours. I always thought the sky looked like a slower version of the ocean. (Minus the lights, of course.)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yes, every chance I get. Especially at the beach while lying face upward to the sky :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Clouds in a blue sky are a sight to behold ... they create patterns that are synonymous to eternal beauty !!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love to look at the white, puffy clouds, yet I don't spend much time studying them.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love clouds too, there is just something that is so magical and story bookish!

    Lauren,

  55. It looks as if we're all unanimous and all love them - I know I do - even the dark rolling ones before a storm. They're amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  56. this look beuatiful.and love clouds! I love to see when Im out workings in plants or others<3

    ReplyDelete
  57. Though I never take the time to appreciate clouds, I really love your keen observation when you say that They are Mother Nature’s very own Rorschach test

    ReplyDelete
  58. I fear I take too much time appreciating the beauty of clouds...I have to watch myself so I don't run into a tree or a wall. Love the movement , the energy, the fierceness or serenity, and how incredible it is when one flies through it!!! I always ask myself which elements of nature I love most and I cannot come up with an answer. : )

    ReplyDelete
  59. Ah, clouds are so fun to watch. When I took Walter to the park on Sunday we watched the clouds for awhile. Mesmerizing.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh yes! I love clouds. Anyone that enjoys taking photos as much as I do loves them. Nothing makes photographs as beautiful as interesting cloud formations.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh , I am in love with clouds . I always like to stare at them . Fluffy buddies!

  62. My favorite ones are during the summer when sunset is approaching and a storm is brewing. The oranges make the blues that much deeper and they go nicely with the bright green of the corn fields. Terrible and beautiful all at once.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I do! I guess I got it from my Dad, who was a meteorologist in the Air Force when I was young. Even now he points out cloud formations and we discuss weather patterns and stuff like that. A few times my sisters and I had to remind him to keep his eyes on the road, instead of the clouds, when he would drive!

    ReplyDelete
  64. P.S. I say you should give poetry a try - would love to read it here. A poem about clouds, perhaps? :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I do!!! Yesterday my housemate and I were looking at the clouds, lazy sunday!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I always enjoy your photos of the sky on Facebook! And I do love looking at clouds as well. I still like to see what shapes I can make out in the clouds like I did when I was a kid :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh yes they are ever changing. I like that to!

    It bugs me when a student paints a sky, and makes it flat blue. Sure sometimes it looks that way, but most of the time there are variations in the sky. Part of me thought it would be good to hand out different skies on a midterm, or final test day, and test them on how close they could get to their picture. They could use any medium they want. I just want it to match.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I love two things you said in this post: "They are Mother Nature's very own Rorschach test," and "A cloud formation at any given moment in time is unique to that moment and that moment alone."

    I love both of those thoughts. I've always loved clouds, but it was during my Earth Science class when we learned about the different types of clouds that I learned that you could "read" clouds and sort of know what was going to happen. The notion fascinated me then, and continues to this day.

    ReplyDelete
  69. YES! And you know how much I love my sky pictures, too! I love everything about this post!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Yes Keith, clouds are Nature the ultimate artist's work in progress

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love nothing more and I mean it...in cloud category...than watching a thunderstorm brew in Tucumcari and blow my way...such power and beauty, those storms that roll across the plains take my breath away and the thing I miss most about summer

    ReplyDelete
  72. clouds are quite prolific in and of themselves

    ReplyDelete
  73. Yes. For two reasons. One I work in them. Literally. Nothing like flying through a thunderstorm in the summer and watching those beauties at 38,000 feet. Second, I grew up watching them come over the continental divide in Colorado. Fascinates me to this day.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Always, although I do love a cloudless day here near Seattle! Love your cloud shots, by the way! :) xo

    ReplyDelete
  75. I love seeing the beautiful colors the clouds take during sunrise and sunset every day.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I definitely take the time to appreciate all beauty around me...and clouds are one of those things!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Oh YES.......love, love, love clouds!!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. I think I posted a comment on your FB page about this, but I don't think anyone who has not spent time on their backs contemplating the miracle of clouds are truly complete.

  79. I have had clouds on my mind too! They are really amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I am a sky lover! I have many sky photos on my cell phone. I see a little lamb. :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Keith, your post made me realize that I haven't watched clouds so much of late. I used to a lot when I was a child. Time to begin again....looking up tomorrow!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. One more reason for you to start a photography blog. You should join the City Daily Photo group. I love clouds, they always make for great photos and shadows.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Keith, I've always enjoyed looking at the artwork created by the clouds. I learned to do it as a kid and I loved watching the clouds. My son and I would lay in the grass and point out different animals, faces, things as we saw them. He's 18 and when we're driving in the car we'll still point out a cloud and say, look at that! Doesn't it look like a...? It's something that relaxes and gives a moment of peace and a happy smile. :-)

  84. I'm really glad clouds fly now. They never get dirty.

    ReplyDelete
  85. What a gosh darned fluffy posting :) I'm up in the clouds. Actually, I wish I was above the clouds. Clouds in Britain, sometimes, Keith, you can have too much of a good thing.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Clouds are great - I sat and waited to decent rain for 10 years here - I always like clouds!

    I somewhere along the line you asked if the last bird I posted was about the same size as a humming bird - I think my birds are about the same size as you largest hummers - I keep forgetting that people in the US don't speak metric!

  87. I love this post. We get some amazing clouds here so I do love to look at them.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hi Keith .. I've always loved clouds and how they skit across the sky, weave, wrap and create new pictures for us to dream into ... lying on the warm ground looking up and watching those wispy formations is entrancing ... cheers Hilary

    ReplyDelete
  89. Clouds can be beautiful on a spring day and give us lots of entertainment. Until they turn to storm clouds...then they can scare me to pieces!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Thank you for the reminder to spend more time looking up, to notice, to really see the clouds again. :)

    ReplyDelete
  91. I used to love to get on the ground as a kid and just stare out the clouds. Funny how when you grow older something so awesome gets so totally lost. Glad that's not true for everyone. :)

    ReplyDelete
  92. In every photo I take, love what you wrote, it's stunning

    ReplyDelete
  93. Clouds are a part of inspiration… I quite agree with you Keith!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Oh my yes. Isn't it amazing all of the pictures that can be seen in clouds?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Oh, yes! I'm with you...I enjoy cloud filled days, both sunny and gray--any way they come, they always brighten my day!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Beautiful!! I also love clouds!!! I always see faces or animals on them!

    Xoxo!!

    ReplyDelete
  97. Little did I know as a cloud-watching child that I would some day study them in pursuit of a pilot's license and eventually fly around them! I love trying to see clouds resemble real objects.

    Mother Nature is always fascinating...

    ReplyDelete
  98. As a rare blood courier, driving at all times of the day, I am repeatedly stunned by the sunset and dawn fiery clouds. During the day, the clouds are living brushstrokes upon an azure canvas. Great post. Check your email for a Halloween gift from me. I hope you think it more treat than trick! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  99. ...sigh...yes...and of course gazing at the stars and the moon is pretty incredible as well...

    ReplyDelete
  100. Mother Nature's Rorschach test! Truly said!
    I am a cloud-gazer too :D and I love watching them float and change shape. But one thing that disappoints me is that cameras never do justice to their beauty. I keep trying but the glorious hues can never be captured perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I love looking at clouds, but it wasn't until I started flying that I realize they weren't all ephemeral bits of fluffiness. I distinctly remember that, whenever we passed into one, the plane would all shake up.
    We never went into thunder clouds, though. We figured that if those puffy white ones shook us up, the boomers would knock us out of the sky.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I love looking at the clouds :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. Absolutely. I've been accused of walking around with my head in the clouds on more than one occasion.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I love clouds! I've reviewed two excellent books about clouds on my blog you can read the first one at http://craftygreenpoet.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/the-invention-of-clouds-by-richard.html and it links to the second one.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Who doesn't? As an artist I can only hope to paint a little of their glory. This means I am overawed and frustrated at the same time!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love clouds. I once worked near the top of a Houston skyscraper. In the summer I could watch thunderheads build outside my window. It was like watching a timed photography movie in real time. Hope that makes sense. It was awesome to see.

    ReplyDelete
  107. For years, I've been told I live in the clouds :)

    ReplyDelete
  108. I need to take more time to appreciate the clouds...

    ReplyDelete
  109. All the time.
    When Millie and I are out walking and looking for pictures to photograph, clouds are always part of the experience.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Couldn't agree more! so fascinating!

    ReplyDelete
  112. yes... a cloud watcher since birth ... fluffy white thangs to low down and dirty thangs... with ripples and waves ... coming at me while driving in a desert.. or waving as they go by while I'm just lying around ....

    ReplyDelete
  113. Yes I do appreciate clouds as I do everything in nature made by God.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Clouds, wispy or puffy, has much beauty, especially against a turquoise sky.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I always enjoy your cloud pictures. I've always enjoyed looking at them and making out shapes or watching them move. I remember when I was younger and my sister was on a plane for the first time she came back and told me that she had fallen asleep and when she woke up they were in the middle of a cloud. I thought that sounded like the most beautiful and magical thing ever. I still think of that whenever I'm on a plane and we fly through a cloud.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I could lay on my back and watch clouds all day. So beautiful and ever changing. I like to know the meaning of the different formations, but the colous are enough to enjoy.

    I followed you on Pinterest. I've been trying to get a widget button to work but haven't managed it yet.

  117. My family was at a football game the other evening. I was so transfixed by the sun setting behind some puffy clouds that I missed the first touchdown.

  118. I thank you for getting me to stop and take notice of the beauty around us Keith. :) I will be sure to spend more time looking at the clouds today!

    ReplyDelete
  121. When I am sitting in the back room I love watching the clouds go by at any time of the day. I can see all kinds of things in them. I was just outside this evening and noticed the clouds look like the sand in the ocean when it is is low tide.

    ReplyDelete
  122. Love clouds too and struck by their beauty.

  123. I love the clouds...just wish I had more time to kick back and watch them.

  124. For sure.They're part of nature and nature is a perfect beauty...a beauty that worth appreciation.:)

    Missed you so..

    Take care..

  126. Clouds seem the perfect subject for a poem ... smiles :)

  127. Thanks for the visit!

    Clouds really are special. I love that everyone has their perspective of what they're seeing and it's still right!

    ReplyDelete
  128. One of my favorite things to do as a kid was to lay on the the grass and look at the clouds. I think I need to start doing that again.;)

    ReplyDelete
  129. I like to lie on grass and look at the sky, at clouds. Sometimes I imagine animals or castles or UFO, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I do love to watch the sky and clouds! They are special especially during a sunset. Lovely photo and a great post. Happy Skywatching!

  131. hmmm now if only they could kiss you ;-)

  132. Since you follow my blog, you know I love looking at the clouds!

  133. Clouds. Absolutely beautiful things.
    They reflect the true nature of things-subjectivity, that's the beauty, like nothing's confined.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I love the way you see the world, Keith! I love to cloud-watch, too. Especially in the summer time. It's just peaceful!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I do!! and this was such a beautiful writeup.. You certainly enjoy the beauty of things to its fullest!

    ReplyDelete
  136. Thank you for the gift of remembering the beauty, flow and mystery of clouds Keith. I love their movement and fluid images too.
    Have a gorgeous weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Its funny what we can see or project to see in those clouds ~ I enjoy looking at them specially when I am riding the plane ~ They always remind me that time or moments passed too quickly ~

    Smiles & have a lovely weekend Keith ~

    ReplyDelete
  138. I too have a love affair with clouds. While flying (not on my broom) I always take photos of clouds and I've been know to pull other while driving just to capture the way a certain cloud looks at that moment. I just got back from Ireland about a month ago...everything was beautiful there especially how the clouds complement the many shades of green of the landscape.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I absolutely pay attention to clouds- especially now that we live at 3500' up in the Mt Shasta area of California. I feel we live in the clouds. It's very dreamy some days. Enjoy your weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  140. When we have clear blue skies and the clouds are all puffy and white I love to gaze at them. Often I will grab my camera and try to capture them, but they never look as magnificent as in real life...

    ReplyDelete
  141. This post was absolutely perfect for the hopeless romantic in me. Thank you for always noticing the beautiful and fine details in life and reminding the rest of us in this world to recognize them!

    ReplyDelete
  142. Yes, takes me back to traveling with my family in the station wagon as a child (the suv of the time) and playing I spy with clouds. Such fun.

  143. Watching clouds as they roll and change--one of the best events.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I truly love clouds. I love looking at them from down here on the ground, and I love seeing them while flying in a plane. Yep.

    ReplyDelete
  145. O, I love clouds too. And in a crowded city like ours, with high-rises and office buildings blotting so much of the sky, looking up at an expanse of cloudy formations is a real treat. I especially love them when they're dark and grey and heavy, because they're such gorgeous portents of rain.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I've been fascinated by cloud formations and color shifts all my life. As a photographer I'd taken many shots of clouds, trying to save the effervescent beauty.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Gorgeous. I love a beautiful cloudy day. The other night the sky was so stunning in oranges and pinks, the clouds were on fire!

    ReplyDelete
  148. I do love looking at clouds, especially when they're painted with the colors of morning and evening.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Every day! And, I love all the photos that you post, they're beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Beautiful shot. I love all sorts of clouds in different cities and countries, they all look different and unique. I took one shot in Buenos Aires, it's on my Instagram (@veganmiam).

    ReplyDelete
  151. where I live, there's nothing buy sky so it's all appreciated, with a grateful heart, daily.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Yes I love the clouds, always so beautiful and different every day

    ReplyDelete
  153. Ahh. Clouds in the sky at sunset is one of my favorite things. They create a cornucopia of color and contrast. Granted someone once told me the color comes from pollution, but I care not. Your blogs bring me inspiration and a sense of joy. Thank you so much for that.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Clouds always lift my spirits. It's a good thing to look up and dream, especially on the less than perfect days, below.

    Happy Weekend Keith! :<)

  156. All the time. :)
    Totally obsessed...
    Today we had a most surreal and magnificent sky...multilayered...dark sky, blue sky, high white clouds...and low fast moving gray clouds...all at the same time! Amazing....
    Hope your Sunday is lovely...

  159. I've always loved clouds. When we go on holiday, while my husband is photographing buildings, I'm often photographing the clouds in the sky. I agree, they are of the moment, and the moment always keeps changing. They are just beautiful in any weather. Thanks for a nice reminder.

    BTW: I left an award for you on my 4th Wish blog.

  160. I adore clouds. I love that if you know a lot about them you can predict the weather and if it will change. I love that how beautiful and soft they look - like a giant pillow. And I love how they create patterns and shapes in the sky. Love clouds

  162. I've just been on an aeroplane and it's wonderful to see the clouds from above and to fly through them. They are just magical. They make you want to reach out and touch them.

  164. I should start doing blog posts devoted to JUST clouds. I love them just as much as you do. :) It's amazing how beautiful the sky can be. We do have beautiful skies in Wyoming a lot.

  166. Hi.
    I was browsing through some of your posts today, and this one caught my eye, as I have a thing for the clouds too! It's fun to look for images in the clouds, and one time I saw a heart and a dog. The clouds are amazing, aren't they?

    I can relate to many of your posts, and I look forward to reading your next one.
