A study on clouds

For several days I took pictures of clouds. I've always loved clouds especially as a child when we'd lay on the ground and try and figure out their shapes. Oh to be young again. Anyway, there is a Cloud Appreciation Society and they have a website if you're interested.

I especially like clouds when the sun is rising or setting but it's difficult to get the shots from my backyard.
You can see the sun hitting these clouds from the left.
The wispy white clouds against the deep blue sky gives you a warm feeling (or is it our 90 degree plus temperatures?)
I liked the shapes here. It almost looks like brush strokes.
This shot is not blurred, but the clouds make it appear so.
A contrast...
Do you see the antique rocker in this one?
Made you look:)
You can see the sunlight filtering through the clouds.
Oops, didn't mean to get the tree in there...
Thoreau said, "You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds."
So what do you say to a cloud?
OK, I know this post was nothing exciting, but it was fun standing in the grass looking up. What can I say? It's the end of the summer...

I remember as a kid learning (in school) all the names of the various types of clouds, why they formed the shapes that they do, and how they reflect weather conditions. It always fascinated me! I love being in a plane and looking down at them, or flying through them, but it sort of messes with my mind a bit. :-)
