Cloudy, the sequel

I couldn't resist posting a few more cloud pics for TP 206.
These are all from my April road trip, on a
cool and moody autumn day near Franz Josef glacier.




When I visited this lagoon at Okarito, I didn't see
one other person, although there were cottages
near the beach.




Then a stop at Lake Mahinapua, which brought back
memories of another life...


I hope you all have a cloudlessly happy Friday tomorrow.

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

  3. Thanks so much for the comment you left on my blog. :) I particularly love your Okarito pics. The gleaming low clouds in the mountains are a cool contrast to the dark overhead clouds. Have a great day!

    1. I'm glad you found it interesting enough to research it, thunder :)
      As you will have read, the glacier is retreating rapidly, as are(sadly)most of the others in the world...

  6. Wonderful. I especially like the one with the old dock posts. I photographed tons of those in Oregon. I don't know why I like pics with those in, but I think the shapes they make are fascinating.

  7. Oh I love clouds coming swiftly and so stunning as these you posted here. Especially that last photo, I'll grab a book and perhaps a fine bottle of wine and just enjoy reading in such beauty by the sea!
