      Thank you for launching Volume X with such a great photo, Michael. I keep waiting to see if some clouds will fall through that gap. Love the sense of anticipation. Wait a minute… maybe they did (#102)!

      And with Hans’s Footsteps In The Snow and Ruth’s Box of Crayons, it looks like we’re off to a fun start.

      Lovely lacunosus, Gregory, and your Evening Guest is a beauty, Ruth. Micheal, #104 has that approaching wave appeal and #105 is simply a roiling joy, despite the darker tones. Pareidolia gets put into play for me as well with an emerging character who looks like he’s crawling his way through an absolute wonderland. Love it!

      Wasn’t sure in which topic to share the cloud art adventure below, but color seemed the best choice. The image here is offered purely in the spirit of playful exploration. While its origin is indeed a cloud photo taken in my backyard yesterday morning, it hadn’t snowed here, nor was it a foggy morning, nor do I live next to a cliff. In fact, I was about to toss the original photo (further below) when curiosity led me to wonder if anything interesting might be made of it. The sole reason I’d taken the photo initially was the appeal of that tiny sun bravely peeking through the little opening of light blue sky. In the end, the result of cropping, rotating and inverting the color really surprised me, creating a moody, misty scene that I think I’ll now keep.

        Hello everyone, sorry I haven’t been posting as of late. I’ve been sick and making up schoolwork, but I should start posting again soon! Lovely images by the way everyone!

      That is really fun indeed Keelin to play with color inversion. The white tree branches make it quite spooky. Even apocalyptic. Nice to see the original too of this surprising result.

      Arizona Color #106 is a great composition Michael. And I can see the crawling creature Keelin spotted in your #105. It must have been captured from under water imo.

      Michael, are you sure that isn’t some big snow flakes in #109.  We are up to our waist in snow, so everything looks like snow.

      Hans, that is the most delicate image.  So soft.P1070437 (2)Morning Moon

      Michael your #111 astounds me. Such a beautiful structure. And Ruth, your soft to the touch is just that. I wish I could use those clouds as a blanket someday.

      Thank you Ruth ! Thank you Gregory.  That was a Monsoon Nimbus Blowout approaching late afternoon, maybe the 3rd shot from the shoot that I’ve posted. Yea I have a soft place in my heart for that event..

      Michael, your monsoon photos are a drama to behold. Quite the contrast to Hans’s gentle and peaceful Fluffiness and Frayed, as well as Ruth’s Morning Moon. And Gregory, your Cloudlets would make the coziest of blankets. I’d like to nestle in and watch all these moods of sky pass by.
