More spectacular skies!
They were wild and changed quickly that night. Thanks, Susan.
Gorgeous. I was also noticing the clouds today. Much beauty to behold.
We had no clouds today. But Monday was wild, threatening to thawrt my photographing the Harvest Moon rising. Fortunately, the clouds left an opened over the mountains so I could see the moonrise. Then it disappeared behind the clouds.
Crazy cool! And the first resembles a skull
Thanks, Dawn. I see skulls, ghosts and all kinds of crazy things.
These are stunning!
The clouds were entertaining while I was waiting for the moon to come or the mountain. Joshua stopped the sun and the moon, but the moon seems to have learned from Joshua how to slow time as the 15 to 30 minutes it takes the moon to rise over the mountains after the posted moonrise is like an eternity.
Oh wow, they look like ocean waves, especially the last row. Bravo!
Thanks, Michele. It was very dark with long, handheld exposures that seemed to intensify the wave look.
Good gawd! Those clouds are insanely intense!
They were wildly entertaining while I was waiting for the moon to come over the mountains. From the time posted for moonrise on the web, it takes it 15 to 30 minutes after the posted time for the moon to come over the mountains. I go out and wait. It’s always a longer 15 to 30 minutes waiting for the moon to come over the mountains that a run-of-the-mill 15 or 30 minutes. Thanks, Dale.
Wow. Still… there are worse ways to spend 15-30 minutes 🙂
I just relized I thought I was answering this comment with the boring sunset comment. I’m so confused.
Buahaha! That’s what happens when you post more than one post (even if it’s a reblog) 😉
Exacitactly. I rarely do more than one post. How people keep up with multiple posts each day is beyond me.
I dunno how you even post one per Day, never mind multiple times! I’ve set it up so I get one email per day for the multiposters. I check in some of theirs but not all. FFS…
I don’t get any emails from most multi-posters. I get way too much email without the multi-posters.
I hear ya. I don’t use the Reader very often…
And I got rid of most of the multi-posters. New follows have (unfortunately) turned out to be multi… Sigh.
I have to use the reader because WP does allow me to comment on a lot of blogs on the blogs. I have to use the reader. It’s weird, and another frustrating WP glitch that persists.
That is just the most bizarre thing. WordPress is such a c*** sometimes.
Most of the time.
WP got so bad in 2014 that I moved my blog to my Zenfolio photo site for three years. The Zenfolio got so slow that it was unusable, and a came back to WP. There are no good choices.
Whoa… that’s cray cray!
And you’re right. WP is way better than Blogger, though… I didn’t last long there…
Is that Google’s old blog spot? I was on blog spot for a very short time in 2010 when I was trying out blog platforms after CaringBridge.
Yeah. Most people tried it at least for a short time!
Inchcock has moved back to Blogger because he couldn’t deal with the block head editor. I noticed WP added back the option for the classic editor.
Many are beyond frazzled. I never left the classic editor – I have always created my posts through the admin page so, it was always available to me to choose it. Some say it will be removed one day. We shall see… I am not interested in putzing around with the block.
The choice for the classic editor was removed from my admin page for quite some time. I noticed it was available again the other day. I do like the ability to have the galleries, but they are still screwed up compared to how they were and the options I had for customizing the galleries in the editor before the blockhead replaced.
Weird. It was never gone from mine. At the top next to Posts – Add New with the arrow – it was always there for me. It did disappear from the left panel where you can add posts as well. But you could play with it by goin into the Edit function and choose classic.
STILL… why make us run through hoops?
Mine disappeared from the top next to posts. It’s probably because I called one of the help desk persons a SLOB (sorry lowlife obstanant bastard) in one of my many fights with various WP SLOBs about the blockhead editor.
I love those clouds! You have some spectacular skies there Tim!
Thanks, Lavinia. They are entertaining.
Those are wild…that last one looks like some sort of chicken monster, but a lovely chicken monster. All the photos are awesome. I think clouds—their different shapes and colors, and how light plays off them—are one of the most interesting things to photograph.
Thanks, KT. The last one is a ghost chicken in the sky: https://youtu.be/M3OD-cTUM-E
Oh Tim, that’s a good one! I’ll definitely be looking up more songs by Leroy Troy. Thanks for the morning laugh.
I love it. You might like Ghost Mousies. Teagan wrote the parody lyrics and I sang it: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-62D
That is hilarious, Tim. Had me laughing out loud. I had my ear buds in, and Husband asked what was making me laugh, so I played it for him. He got a kick out of it too.
Thanks, KT. I’m happy you like it. Teagan came up with some great lyrics for that one.
She sure did!
You might like this one since you lived through MAD, also: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-6bQ
Did you write the lyrics, Tim? Your song is full of black humor, which I enjoy.
I wish I could go back and read all your old posts, but I have trouble even reading all the people’s posts I currently follow…not enough hours in the day. But there are a few I always read, yours among them
Yes. I wrote the lyrics. Lot’s of black humor for those black times. I can feed you some of the parodies as we go along. It’s especially difficult to go through my site since I post daily.
Thank you…sounds good.
The clouds look amazing.. Its like a tornado coming down from the sky!!
No tornado. Just wild looking clouds. Thanks, Ebar.
Of course its not a tornado😅 just the wild shape of the clouds kinda looks like it😌
Anyways you’re welcome!!
Fortunately, tornadoes are very rare out here because of the mountains. But we have experienced one or two over the past 40 years. Out here everyone runs out to look at the tornadoes instead of running for cover.
Wow that’s kinda weird.. I mean who would go to watch a tornado instead of running away from it😅.. Maybe its because tornados are rare in your area?
They are so rare they are seen as more of a curiosity that a danger.
Well the saying does say “curiosity killed the cat”.
Anyways thanks for the information and the wonderful photos!
True about the curiosity. You are welcome.
Fantastic, like the movement of ocean waters in the sky.
WOW. Truly. WOW.
Thanks for the wows, Shey.
Painter is on fire!!!! 🙄
…so is the photographer!
Simply stunning! I’ll never understand how you capture nature so impeccably, with utmost perfection!
Thanks, Sam. I have lots of years of experience wrestling with nature. She still beats the crap out of me, but gives me some nice modeling for a consolation prize.
Ah! 😉 She’s made you a hustler, I see.
magical, mystical and surreal Tim!💖💖
These are very spectacular pictures, Timothy.
You guys sure get some magical skies!
Love those skies! Still grey and rainy and now in the 50’s here.
Fall drops in abruptly.
There is magic in your skies, Tim and you capture it for all of us to enjoy. Thank you!
Thanks, Rebecca. I’m happy you could enjoy them.
Tim – I always feel a sense of peace when I view your photos. Thank you for the gift of respite that you bring to my days.
You are welcome, Rebecca. I’m happy you were able to enjoy the chaos of the clouds.
BTW I noticed the classic editor option is back on the admin page on my WP. It might be on yours if you want to try a WP post.
Working on it now, Tim. Putting the last Ode on from Blogger. Fingers crossed, mate!
I just saw it and commented. Good for you!
Wow! Those skies are biblical!
That’s a good description. Thanks, Miriam.
The first cloud looks like it’s floating around with Alexander McQueen’s famous skull on it.
The 5th looks like Isadora Duncan doing the Dance of the Seven Veils.
7 & 9 look like tough seas.
#1 is my fave!
Fun post, Tim!
I love your imagination. You can see all the great character the clouds make. “Isadora Duncan doing the Dance of the Seven Veils” is perfect. Thanks, Resa.
Very dynamic cloudscapes.
They sure were wild … fabulous skies Tim!
