A Photo A Week Challenge: Clouds

Cloudy Days

Clouds are really interesting to photograph, they come in so many shapes, sizes and colours. Sometimes they look forbidding, sometimes they look cute and fluffy and sometimes they look like something else, a dragon, a castle or maybe some kind of animal. Here are a few of my favourite cloud photos.

Sisters Beach Tasmania

Looking at this photo below I think there is a tinge of smoke there so I think that it must have been taken on a day when a hazard reduction burn was taking place.

Looking outside, around 7am.

These clouds look like UFOs.

I was out walking when I saw these clouds gathering and realised that if I did not hurry I was going to get very wet.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
