C is for………………

 The letter C is what it’s all about over at Mum’s today
Alphabet Blogging Challenge is on a Friday and today I chose Clouds
Which are a collection of tiny drop of water or ice crystals so light they can float in the air!

I found these clouds in Far North Queensland – in Glacier Bay Alaska –
and close to home in Victoria
Fascinating to look at – hard to capture – do you look at the land or the sky?

(photos are much easier to see if you click and enlarge)

There is loads of information out there on the W.W.W.
The Cloud Appreciation Society looks interesting

  1. We see lots of clouds from on high and sometimes I take a snap of them. I remember as a kid lying in a warm sheltered spot in the garden staring up at clouds as they moved across the sky.

  2. Same here — a blanket, a hot summer afternoon, and a friend to share the cloud stories with. So lovely. The same blanket, friend, and a summer evening to count the falling stars was lovely, too.

  3. I love looking up at clouds and watching them float by overhead. Just looking out of the window now I can see no clouds but a bright blue sky. It’s been a very warm day.
    Love from Mum
