Broken Dreams

The blue sky is broken apart by shattered window panes and even by the tattered hole in the roof of this grand old industrial building. Even the old Victorian bentwood and wicker chair is going to pieces. Such dreams lived here.

The leaves have fallen from the trees, and such things are now in full view.

Opening in the Clouds

Okay, so, this was a pretty dramatic moment and I almost wrecked my car. Most of the day was heavily overcast but for this one opening in the clouds that moved overhead beaming golden sunlight onto the landscape below. Just wish I could have caught a bit of the autumn colors in those trees.

“…no hell below us, above us only sky…”

It’s in your heart. Find it there, and share it.

This was left on my front porch to greet me this morning. Possibly to celebrate the day, and possibly because I’m summarizing my remarks from last Sunday’s Pet Memorial Sunday ceremony just after we’d released the white doves to carry off our wishes to our animal companions.

Briefly in a heavily overcast day, the clouds variously parted and, with the haze of cold snow in the air, put on quite a lovely show of shadows and light.


Vanilla Ice Cloud, 2011

Vanilla Ice Cloud

Doesn’t this cloud look like a bowl of vanilla ice cream? I’ve left a little bit of foliage and a building roof in for scale.

And who could call it “white”?

Big clouds like this have such depth and hold and reflect so much light and shadow, especially at this moment when they are catching the last rays of the sun before it sets below the horizon, reflecting the sunset in their own manner.

Early Dawn

Truly stunning, showing through the trees, the first light was vivid red. I thought for sure it meant it would rain today, but just a welcome overcast and cool.

I have always loved this time of day with just the reflected light of the sun below the horizon, as the shadow of the earth creeps up from the east toward the western horizon. Even the clouds catch the gradation, though a few here are still touched with the fire of sunset.

Layered Sunset

Layered Sunset

This tall layering of various types of clouds and different colors for each layer reminded me of one of those layered desserts. But the varieties of clouds, their shapes and densities and the patterns they are whipped into from winds aloft never ceases to amaze me. These clouds are so varied in part because the lowest layer is rain clouds moving in over the horizon from the west bringing turbulence. The changing season guarantees interesting skies just about all the time.
