Heart Clouds

 

 


On our way back from Indiana on Labor Day, I asked the good Lord to show me a cloud that had some excitement to it; that looked like something and He did! Not long after my prayer, I looked out my passenger window and saw the above cloud. As I started pulling my magic camera out of it black bag, Don asked me, "Now what are you taking a picture of?" with the emphasis on the word "now". Because I was cloud/sky watching, I guess Don saw there was no noteworthy scenery since he asked this question. I simply told him, "A heart cloud." "A heart cloud." He repeated not as a question. Yes, Indeedy. A heart cloud. I am rather proud of this one. What would be the odds of finding another heart cloud again?

I took the 1st shot, we hit a bump in the road which made me get some of the truck in the left side of the shot. So I took the second one just to make sure I got this one in a lifetime cloud. It sort of amazed me the difference in the color of the sky in a matter of seconds.

Hey..I just joined Sky Watch. I thought I would start on the bottom of the SkyWatch list and work backwards. I just found out about the group today.

Great pictures. It is amazing how the clouds can take on a different shape.

Luiz Ramos said...

Yes, Heart Clouds. Beautiful shot.

I didn't see it until you mentioned "heart cloud" and then I saw it. That makes it very special. I would make prints of those and keep them in your hope chest or somewhere that your grandchildren can look at them.

My blog post for Sky Watch is on my Canon Pixels and if you have any spare time I would appreciate it if you could take a look at the sun peeking through the oak tree leaves.

Thanks.

A definite keeper. This photo is just beautiful and the heart is a keeper, I would frame it and put it up on the wall.

John said...

Those are absolutely beautiful!

Craver Vii said...

Ha ha... I tilted my head immediately, when I saw the photo, and began reading, hoping to find why the landscape was tilted. Yes, that's a clever capture of the heart-shaped cloud. Good one!

Jo said...

Becky, those pictures give me goosebumps!!

Amazing. Totally amazing!!

PERBS said...

Absolutely unique! I have never seen a heart shaped cloud before! It's a keeper!

Running behind in reading posts but finally here and was looking to see if you posted Blog Your Blessings Sunday this week -- the owner wrote about updating his blogroll since several haven't posted in many weeks. . . maybe you just did it once after seeing mine?

Sorry that you sounded disappointed that I am not into modern art like your neat picture from last post. Isn't it wonderful tho that many people have different tastes in art appreciation. . .

becky said...

WOW! Thanks, Michelle & John! Coming from the both of you, that makes me feel even better about this photo. Yes, Denise, it is definetly a keeper. I plan to put one in my hope chest as Abe suggested and one up on the wall.
Well, in this case, goosebumps are a good thing, Jo! Yes, Perbs, it is unique and a keeper. I have a post in mind for Blog Your Blessing, just haven't composed it yet but will before the end of the night I hope. It is neat we are all so different with different talents the good Lord had given us.

Those clouds are wonderful.

I hear you're on the BYB blogroll. I use a modified version of that list because so many on it don't participate regularly; cutting it down saved me time. I would love to add your name to my blogroll, if that's ok!
