Set 6 of My Favorite Cloud Photographs
Bob Jensen at Trinity University 

I carry relatively new Cannon cameras in our cars. On top my desk is a Sony camera that I've used for over 15 years. It's original rechargeable battery
never dies. In September I finalized the mini disk that's been in the camera since last winter. Out of the 88 photographs on the disk I will show you a
few of what I think are my better shots --- mostly clouds that appeared in front of me while I worked at my desk.

Clouds add a lot to most photographs
This is an early springtime shot showing lower clouds white and higher clouds of blue and gray in the early morning
Notice the flag in our front yard
None of my photographs are retouched unless I tell you so (except possibly to remove a flash spot)
Some of the pictures below show reflections from the window glass in front of my desk.



Sometimes the clouds appear in layers over the mountains



Mt. Lafayette is part of the Appalachian Trail above timberline
Cannon Mountain has over 90 ski trails


Clouds often obscure the mountain tops



Clouds sometimes obscure the entire mountains and make it look like we have a lake out front (over the valley)








Sometimes the clouds look like snow piles


The plumes of snow below are not clouds
These are plumes of snow Cannon makes for selected ski trails







Clouds can turn sunrises into spectacular sunrises




This is when I tease Erika by saying her relatives are back for their handouts



Eric mows and trims my front lawn
I mow my back lawn (with less trimming)
In the winter Eric manages (an owns) a ski shop near Loon Mountain



The Invention of Clouds: Goethe’s Poems for the Skies and His Heartfelt Homage to the Young Scientist Who Classified Clouds ---

If I should ever cease to be amazed and enraptured by the magic of clouds, I should wish myself dead. And I am hardly alone — since the dawn of our species, the water cycle’s most visible expression in the skies has bewitched artists, poets, and scientists like as a beautiful natural metaphor for the philosophy that there in an inherent balance to life, that what we give will soon be replenished. More than two millennia before poet Mark Strand and painter Wendy Mark joined forces on their breathtaking love letter to clouds, before Georgia O’Keeffe extolled the beauty of the Southwest skies, before scientists figured out why cloudy days help us think more clearly, the great ancient Greek playwright Aristophanes wrote: “They are the celestial Clouds, the patron goddesses of the layabout. From them come our intelligence, our dialectic and our reason.” Indeed, there is a singular quality of prayerfulness to clouds — a certain secular reverence undergirding their allure to both art and science.

Autumn and Foliage Links
See when it actually feels like autumn where you live ---
The chart does not accept zip codes or small towns. It's best to enter the name of a country or a USA State to see what cities are linked.
Where I live in northern New Hampshire our furnace usually kicks back in in mid-September, but the foliage season usually does not make traveling up here worthwhile until October.
