An amazing collection of photographs – recognisable shapes in the clouds – can you tell what it is yet?
It was William Wordsworth who penned the immortal lines “I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills” in his timeless poem – The Daffodils.
Personally, if I was going to personify clouds, I wouldn’t describe them as lonely…I see them more as mischievous, and every now and again, someone with the foresight to carry a camera, catches them in the act of mimicking what they see below them….before they re-disperse into in-coherent innocence.
Outline of the UK
As a resident of the United Kingdom, I was particularly impressed to find that this particular familiar geographical outline had been spotted in the clouds on more than one occasion!
UFO’s are hot news at the moment, and you could be forgiven if you mistook these peculiar lenticular cloud formations as visitors from outer space.
Man’s best friend – following man wherever he goes – even across the skies!
For all you romantics out there – can you feel the love?
These are my favourite! – as human beings we are biologically pre-disposed to see faces in chaos – I particularly admire the nerve of the photographer of the second photograph – I think that if I saw that image in the sky, I would be running in the opposite direction.
You may have to use your imagination to a small degree to see the bird images in the following photographs – when you get it they are quite stunning.
The Hubble telescope recently released a photograph of an image resembling an eye in deep space – dubbed the eye of God – these are equally impressive …the hands of God.
This photograph would make a great poster for a reflexology centre, or even a shoe shop – try our shoes …your feet will feel like they are walking on clouds!
I am not sure where in the world this photograph was taken, but it could well be Amity Island! Be afraid….be very afraid!!
I use the term “horses” quite loosely – as one of these photographs bears more resemblance to a donkey or a llama.
If you have enjoyed these images and like me, you may find yourself gazing up at the sky a little more often, don’t forget to keep your camera to hand, just in case a familiar, amusing shape forms before your eyes.
If you happen to snap a curious cloud formation and wish to share it or, failing that If your appetite is whetted for more interesting cloud tomfoolery, there is (believe it or not) a cloud appreciation society
