Awesome Clouds Again



One of the most satisfying experiences I know is fully to appreciate an individual in the same way I appreciate a sunset. When I look at a sunset...I don't find myself saying, 'Soften the orange a litle more on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple along the base, and use a little more pink in the cloud color...' I don't try to control a sunset. I watch it with awe as it unfolds.
Carl R. Rogers



Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. 

Rabindranath Tagore


These are pictures of clouds taken from our terrace. Every once in a while the magnificent colors of the clouds and their formation, both unusual and beautiful never ceases to amaze me.
So here I was clicking away whatever beauty I could capture.....


Aren't they really beautiful?
What forms can you imagine, I would love to know.

  5. Hello Rama,

    Beautiful scenes of the sunset.Very often we are so busy and engrossed in our normal routine activities that we fail to see the gorgeous sunsets that unfold in the sky practically every day.Your photos are magnificent and they transported me to a land of magic and wonder.

  7. When I was a child, one of my favourite past time was to lie on the terrace and see the clouds. Sometimes they were shaped like a chariot. Sometimes like a flying bird. Now, with so much pollution, we hardly see a clear sky.
    Lovely photos of the clouds. And I simply love the blogger header.

  10. Rama, Thanks for sharing. Clouds always hold a peculiar mysticism to me. As they change in colour, tone and shape, they are sort of communicating to us in a way we have yet to understand.
