A Word A Week Photo Challenge — Cloud

By Vladimir Brezina

On A Word In Your Ear , Skinnywench’s photo challenge this week is Cloud. Since I have so many photos of clouds—it’s hard to avoid clouds, just as it is hard to avoid water, in kayaking photos—I thought I would join in.

But, although I have many photos of clouds, the clouds of two special days stand out particularly in my memory. On those days, a dramatic, constantly changing cloudscape dominated the scene. We stared upward, mesmerized.

Here’s the first of those days.

The story of the day is here, more photos are here, and larger versions of some of the photos are here. And the second of the two spectacularly Cloudy days is here.

  3. Amazing shots – great sequence

  4. The Cityscape becomes dwarfed by Beautiful Cloud Skies :-)

  5. That looks like a serious storm about to break in the first photos.

  6. Ohh they are so beautiful! I enjoy watching the constant change of the clouds… always making up new pictures for us to capture and never the same.

  7. Reblogged this on chaotiqual.

  8. These are some AMAZING photos of clouds over New York. LOVE THEM!

  9. That shot with just the tiny streak of yellow is the one for me!

  10. Some stunning images here.

  11. Vladimir, you have done it again! These are simply beautiful! I really like the 6th one down – the one you have titled “crepuscular rays”. Very, very nice!

  12. Grand sky images! It must be a more intense experience from the water – I certainly would pay attention when on the street, but you don’t get as wide a view, and you know you’re removed from it – you can take shelter – so it’s not the same. I can’t figure out where you were though – oh – I hovered and now I see – thanks for that. I don’t know how to do that when posting – does it automatically happen if you title your photo (I have not been putting titles in)?

  13. Vladimir, thank you for stopping and liking a post recently. Your pictures of the sky line and sky of New York are impressive and beautiful. I look forward to following your blog as you explore the opposing forces that so often make up the paradox we call life.

    Take care,


  14. They’re all so dramatic – thanks, Vlad!

  15. Another set of amazing photos! really wonderful…

  16. Some ominous looking clouds, Vladimir! But beautiful…
