The first half of November has brought us some fine sky.
It is November, so of course we’ve had plain old gray obscuration with wet, like the last fourteen or so hours which brought us two and thirty-seven hundredths of rain.
The approach of a storm system can give us monochromatic skyscapes of great variety and interest.
The clouds come and go, never appearing the same way twice.
There are the days in-between, whose simple meteorological designation of “partly cloudy” does not do justice to the displays above us.
Patterns in the clouds echo patterns on the land, and vice versa…
What’s going on in this next photo? It looks like a whole section of cloud has detached from a parent layer, and is dropping to earth.
And…we’ve had days so clear and blue….
Days so clear and blue — that you become driven to seek out fields and flats, or a beach, or a boat in the ocean, to be able to look up to experience above that celestial hemisphere of stunning cloudless azurine.
