Beauty In The Clouds

Here in Vancouver it’s not that uncommon to hear people complaining about the cloudy weather. We certainly get our share of it, and when it covers the sky completely, the greyness that accompanies it can get depressing pretty quick. But there are other times, such as when you have a few fluffy, white clouds floating around that I find them to be quite welcome. Quite often they’re very beautiful to see, and I know from experience that they make great photo subjects that are received very well when I post the pictures in my Blog. Well the other day I witnessed a sight that I actually was very familiar with from my hiking days, since it was a scene most commonly sighted while one was up in the highlands on a partially cloudy day. At those particular times it’s not unusual to find yourself passing in and out of clouds as you make your way up the mountain, an experience very similar to moving in and out of fog-banks when you are at ground level or out at sea. It can be damp and cold, but interesting at the same time.

Well the other day it was mainly sunny down here at sea level, but when I looked up at the mountain-tops, they were passing in and out of view as clouds sailed past them. These were very light clouds, almost like a heavy mist, but enough to mask the peaks behind them. The whole scene was quite attractive, so I snapped a few pictures and thought I would share them with you here today. So here they are, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Have a great week-end everyone. See you next time.

  1. I know that long periods of greyness can be depressing, but I tell ya what, here in Texas in July and especially August, I’d love to have days and days if not weeks and weeks of cloudy greyness instead of that hot, blazing sun. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. That just goes to show how it’s all relative to what each of us is experiencing in our daily walk. I have had some small experience with what you are saying when I stayed in Gainesville, FL for a short time, and the heat was a drastic change from the winter weather I had left in Saskatchewan, where I was between semesters at university. Huge shock to the system. So I guess there’s no sense in complaining, it won’t change anything anyway. As for today, I have bright sunshine, and I’m on my way out to find something to shoot pictures of. You have a great and blessed week-end, and we’ll talk to you again.
