Clouds never stay still. They’re in a state of perpetual transition, mutating from one form to another. This ephemeral, ever-changing quality is part of their beauty. If you have time-lapse video of clouds for this page, upload it to a video hosting site like Vimeo or YouTube and send us a link.

Mark told us:
A week before my birthday, I learnt that I’d won some tickets to The London Eye, courtesy of The Thames Festival on the condition that they were used by Feb 24th. Not wanting to miss the opportunity to do something cinematic with it, my wife and I wanted to either catch a sunset or a night-time ride so I could film it and Miko could take some pictures. However the weather wasn’t being our friend. Each day rolled by and the blanket of dull, grey skies (OH HAI nimbostratus!) seemed like it would never break. What we wanted was the pressure to drop (opening up the skies to more exciting cloud formation) and a warm front start to move in from the west, preferably around tea time. It looked like it wasn’t to be until the very last day of our ticket, so on 24th February, I managed to take an hour off work early and I met up with Miko at The Eye at 5pm. just as the sun was rolling over the horizon. We exchanged our tickets and queued… and prayed that we got on the ride before the sunset got any good. I think that we got the perfect view.

Clive Blundell's Die Walküre

A Cloud Opera

Clive Blundell's Die WalküreCloudspotter, Clive Blundell, sent us a link to his film, Gods, Mortals and Morals. It depicts Richard Wagner’s opera Die Walküre, but with the characters represented by shapes in the clouds. We think the operatic tale of Norse mythology seems to fit rather well with his images of clouds shaped like gods. What do you think?
