Capturing Clouds

Two Different Days

I’m back with more Capturing Clouds photos!  You can see them all in the Capturing Clouds Gallery.

The first and second photos are taken on the same day.

I love the separation through the top of this one. Oh, and by the way, the speck above the tree is a helicopter! It is not an uncommon sight out this window.

There is something so peaceful about this one… taken in the early evening (6:40 pm).

Grey clumps on the afternoon of day two…

And the following two are a bonus!  They were taken from my front yard on the same day.

Stay tuned for lots more.  I have been taking photos all year!

Nothing profound!

27 January, 2014

Today there is nothing very profound in these photos, but lots of white fluffy clouds (mostly) in varying shapes and sizes over a few days.

I still marvel at the difference every moment and day brings out my window.

And… I do love this last one.

Faces in the Clouds

I love the way different shapes are formed in clouds, and how they randomly come together to sometimes represent something that us humans can relate to.

In this photo I can see not one, but two faces peering at me!  Can you see them too?

Nine minutes later, there is no evidence of faces, but dark clouds forming.


I love the way the bright white cloud is sitting behind the dark grey one, and am fascinated by the shape of the tops of them and how they are almost a matching pair.

Hands in the Clouds

Two days worth of photos here, and all vastly different!

We have blue clouds…

white clouds…

25 January, 2014 – Hands

and pink ones!

Did you see the hands in the clouds?

Have a look at the middle photo.  I see two hands, one larger than the other, both cupped in opposite directions around an ‘eye’.

26 Seconds

I currently live on top of the Great Dividing Range, in Australia, and the mountain I live on is approximately 700 metres above sea level.   There is often a breeze or a wind, and I only really discovered this fact since being in this ‘Capturing Clouds’ house, which is a bit more exposed than the previous two houses I have lived in.  Due to the breeze or wind, much of the time the clouds move quite quickly, and sometimes they change and move so rapidly that I miss capturing some of the amazing cloud formations I see.

Sometimes the difference between two photos in a short period of time is enormous and while these two photos aren’t vastly different, you can see the changes that have occurred in 26 seconds.

22 January, 2014 – Heart

I can see a heart in the first one, but it has disappeared in 26 seconds.

A Striking Day

I find the diversity of a day out my window, rather striking!

In the middle of the day, there were fairly clear skies, which included two eyes, a nose, and a mouth.  Can you see them?

21 January, 2014 – Smiley Face

By late afternoon dark clouds were rolling in…

That culminated in a thunderstorm…
