At the end of July, the Cloud Appreciation Society put on a free exhibition of a selection of the photographs from our new book ‘A Pig with Six Legs and other clouds from The Cloud Appreciation Society’ at the Port Eliot Literary Festival in Cornwall, UK.
During the festival we set a competition for festival goers to take photographs of clouds in the shape of things during the weekend. The results were judged and awarded prizes at a star-studded, Oscars-like ceremony at the end of the weekend. Society founder, Gavin Pretor-Pinney, presented the gold and silver cloudspotting award trophies (see right). Luckily the recipients didn’t realize until they had returned to their seats that these were in fact made out of rubber toilet plungers, sprayed with sparkly paint.
