Swimming through clouds

It was one of those days, one of those outings that took my breath away and left me wishing I had brought my camera with me. My mobile phone had to try and capture the purity of the day…

… when earth, sky and water seemed to be made up of nothing but clouds.

Who could resist swimming through those candy floss clouds in the lake?

Oscar couldn’t.

I like to think that people all through the ages – past, present and future – are united by their child-like wonder at the endless beauty of clouds floating in the blue.

  1. Beautiful doesn’t start to describe it. If that is a camera phone, I am throwing out my SLR in favour of one.

  6. Stunning photos, Lady Fi! I really, really love clouds…soft, fluffy, billowing clouds, of course, but even angry clouds are beautiful. And what is more perfect than clouds reflected in water? Nothing, in my opinion.

    I know this is petty after all the enjoyment your beautiful post provided, but I kind of am really jealous that you could take these pix with your phone. ;>))))
