Big batch of cloud pictures!
Clouds are one of Mom Nature's best and most playful art forms! Their variety is neverending. This big batch spans a couple of years and several locations. One batch was taken on vacation summer before last, when I first got my present camera. Most of those were taken out the car window on our way west, as I was practicing with the new camera. I declared that we just didn't have wonderful clouds like those back home.
Then, after we got home, I discovered that I just wasn't looking up often enough! They may not occur here on such a daily basis, but we have fabulous cloud days here too. I am blessed to live almost at the end of a dead end street, next to a big meadow, with land behind us that is in process of becoming a nature park. It's a great place to walk in most weather, and a great place to take great cloud/ sky pictures. Many of these pics are taken there at various times.
I'm marking all of these as creative commons, feel free to use as texture layers or backgrounds or whatever you like. Mom nature puts this show on for free all the time, so what I've had the joy of catching on camera can go play anywhere you'd like it to. Hope you enjoy!
