Clouds


We've had some amazing clouds this week here in Ohio.
 Dark blue skies, reflecting sun and wind have really made them stand out!
See the black cricket taking a ride?


I thought this one looked like Dumbo's head.  He's even grey! His head is in the center, looking to the right.  See his little trunk pointing up and his long ear stretching out on the left?
  No? Well, I've been known to see faces in my food, too. ha.


As the sun set they turned pink and yellow!  And this big peak opened it's mouth...


...and looking like a big hippo, ate the little grey cloud that used to be Dumbo!
I know...I need to get out more. :)

  1. great shots! I love to photograph the clouds too. I took some this week as well. Tried to upload them but the computer must have a bellyache. It didn't work.

    1. Oh WOW. Your cloud is so cool! I thought it looked like a tornado. When I enlarged it I can see two faces. One in the center very clearly and another very close on the left. The second one looks like a skull. Amazing!

  10. Wow sure cloudy at your bay today
    The first I see a turtle on display
    I see dumbo in the second one though
    The next something splitting down the middle quite slow
    And the last a zombie hand
    Isn't that just grand..haha

    1. Your turtle is about to step on my cricket
      and then it will have a fit
      A zombie hand is better than his foot
      which we'll see next week without his boot.
      lol.

    2. That was an eye rhyme at the end
      Cheating with such a trend
      And the poor cricket can't chrip
      For the turtle sat on him then gave a burp

      Delete
    3. but you taught me the eye rhyme
      and said it was so sublime
      or is that only when you do it
      with others it causes a fit?

      Delete
    4. haha no it is fine to do
      That is true
      But I admit the eye rhyme I never knew
      Until Grammar Nazi mentioned it in the comment view

      Delete
    5. I'm sure he'll be here
      to take the credit with a cheer. :)

      Delete
    6. haha that's why I beat him to the punch
      As I had that hunch..haha
