Watching the sky

As a young girl I spent most of my time outdoors. I loved to lie on the freshly mowed lawn and watch the clouds pass by. I could see all types of mythical creatures as they moved quickly across the sky.

I remember another time of looking down on the clouds from the top of Mt Buffalo in Victoria. How magical to be ABOVE the clouds.

My first few plane flights were a real buzz  – reaching the clouds and then flying through and above them. When I lived in North Western Australia I was often a passenger in light aircraft traveling from one community to another. Being caught in an electrical storm was so exciting (not for the pilot though!) It is like being in a different dimension. Flying in the 747’s through a storm was pretty exciting too.

I shot today’s blog photos this time yesterday. The formation of dark and gloomy clouds promised so much but didn’t deliver.

I sometimes have dreams about the sky that would rival the best of Star Wars! They feel so real and electric. Do you ever dream about the sky?


Until next time



  1. This rings a bell with me. I used to lie on the grass and watch the clouds too. And the sensation of being in a plane and flying through the clouds and emerging into the bright blue sky with the billowing clouds below you is hard to beat.

  2. We had the wettest April I can remember in my 18 years here in San Diego. That, of course, allowed me to get a lot of nice pictures of clouds. Now I can replace dull gray skies with blue cloudy skies.
