Well, I was going to take a break from this week’s photo challenge from A Word in Your Ear, but the theme proved simply too alluring, and I’ve seen some marvelous submissions from other folks which inspired me. I really do love these little challenges, and through them I’ve discovered great blogs that otherwise I may have missed, so thanks, Skinnywench!
The bay was perfectly placid on this particular morning, and the reflections of mountains and sky amazing.
I just liked the way the lines of the church dome were echoed in the clouds.
Fun on the beach on a light-drenched late afternoon.
Lake Balaton in Hungary is subject to very dramatic cloud formations and lighting, and this afternoon was particularly so.
As I was saying.
We pulled the car over on a winding mountain road to admire this autumn sunset.
Any time you can get the contrast of a sunlit foreground with dark skies behind it you’re onto a winner.
Cloud-and-rain-swept Connemara offers constantly changing land, sea, and skyscapes.
Lake Balaton. Dramatic skies. I think I’ve mentioned that.
I don’t know, I just really liked the contrast between the melancholy stolidness of the seated figure and the rays of the sun breaking through.
Kauai. What can one say, but: Gorgeous.
I was drawn to the small stark silhouette of this goat against the ominous enormity of the sky.
A Hawaiian sunset. How cliche. (But how pretty, too!)
Flying over Greenland on our way to California, there were incredible glaciers, azure pools of water, icy peaks, and of course, these clouds.
What a morning to be on the slopes! Overcast in the valley, your gondola broke through a world of white to reveal the peaks poking through a rippling blanket of clouds.
Thanks again, Skinnywench, for hosting these things. Always a pleasure to both submit shots and see what others have done. Cheers!
