  1. Almost looks like something out of War of the Worlds or some such. giant looming figures over the horizon and all that.

    But they're too fluffy to be malevolent Martian invaders. Then again, the winds inside those clouds could do some real damage...

  8. You know, I think I have only been to Ocean Beach Park once or twice as a child. I have just returned from 2 weeks of rain in CT. Where did you find these blue skies? Love the contrast of the puffy white clouds with the spikey green grass.

  14. Now those are some puffy clouds. They appear to be taking over the sky and about to march upon the landscape.

    Oh my. What a beautiful sky. The northeastern US this spring and early summer has been a feast of amazing clouds (and so much rain of course) and you've captured a real stunning image. The perspective is one that I've always loved - as if you were walking up a steep hill right into the sky. Excellent!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow! Nice composition...Love those fluffy clouds...:)

  47. They came from earth and to the earth shall they return.

    Beautiful sky and clouds. Makes me wonder what I would see if I inched forward and peeked at the horizon.

    ReplyDelete
  49. wow it has been a long time since i visited - look at how much i have missed.
    these clouds are amazing - you know we don't get clouds like this as they are usually wispy ones or fog (that comes in on cat's feet). sometimes we see these in the distance but not enough to truely see them or get any shade from them

  50. Very pretty! Makes me want to take off my shoes and sit down to relax.

  51. Beautiful blue and white contrast. Happy skywatching.
