Cloudspotting -Thematic Photography

I looked out of my office window when I saw Carmi's cloudspotting theme and, of course, there wasn't a cloud in the sky. However I have managed to find a few photos containing clouds and as usual some are there by accident; in others the clouds 'make' the shot.

Just two clouds for company - good visibility all round.

Majorca - early morning clouds
Back home in England large clouds dwarf the bridges at Yarm.

From Saltholme Nature Reserve there is a good view of the Transporter Bridge under a cloudy sky/

And a close up with the clouds above.

Looking up
You can't have failed to spot the clouds.

The clouds cannot be reached this way.

The English county of Cornwall is also known as the Land of the Saints or Cornubia.

Cornubia - painted by John Miller
This picture hangs in Truro Cathedral. It was painted to celebrate the centenary of the Cathedral in 1980. I am glad the clouds did not block out the light.

Now it's time for you to follow the Rolling Stones' advice ( ) and cross over to other cloud spotters at Thematic-photographic-252.

Not been too many clouds round here the last couple of days. Like your pictures of clouds. Love the Norwegian one.

Cool pictures. I especially like the boats and the firefighters.

Great photos and you have the same music taste as my brother, no me I am afraid.

All your great shots are enhanced by the clouds, Bob. Special thanks for showing us the painting- it's lovely. I would really like to see the original.

Not just impressive for the clouds, some of these are just amazing for the details. Love the ones of the Middlesborough bridge.

Very nice pics, Bob.

You have the gift of locating scenes of staggering beauty, near and far, and then shooting them with serious grace.

Keep on keeping on: I love your vision, clouds and all.

Clouds add so much interest to these images, Bob. A blue sky is all very well but lacks character by comparison. I note storm clouds were not allowed to spoil the party.
