Thank you for the refresher course in cloud formations!

A MAN WHO LOOKED UP AT THE SKY

A man who looked up at the sky
Saw ravens and clouds flying by.
He had to look up,
The sky filled his cup—
He’s my kind of sky-watching guy!

Oh, I really like the Teddy Bear Picnic idea best but it's nice to know what these different formations are called. The cartoon cloud on the right has personality plus. :0

You have some great shots! I can't seem to remember the types of clouds, so I am impressed that you do! My favourite is the second shot, with the grain field in the foreground. I just think that shot should be on a wall, not lost in the archives!

Gattina said...

They are all beautiful, but I like the second picture best !

Carver said...

Those are all wonderful sky shots. I love the colors in the clouds.

Your sky and cloud pictures are fabulous, and I do admire your knowledge about the various types of cloud formations, - thank you for telling me about the name of the wispy clouds that seem to be all that inhabit our hot summer skies.

Active skies with and equally active imagination! What a pretty place to live! Love it that you dress up like Mrs. Claus!
