I am sure that most, if not all of the people who visit this site know that I love watching the clouds.
On a recent drive out into the country, hoping for a gorgeous sunset,I spent the earlier part of the evening watching and photographing the clouds. What follows are some of my shots from that evening.

This picture was taken a day before all the others, but I love seeing those huge puffy clouds in the blue sky.

As the sun was dropping further in the western sky the clouds got that dark ominous look.This is a different kind of beauty, no doubt.

I think a sky like this is so beautiful and have a hard time not getting yet another and another shot.

When I turned to look more toward the east,I was surprised to see these clouds. I am not a meteorologist so I don't have names for all the clouds, but I do appreciate the beauty.

Looking directly south,I was greeted with this sight.Truly, there was beauty all around me and it varied greatly, depending on which direction I looked. A few minutes also could make a huge difference in the look of the sky.

Something To Think About:
The Bible says:
The Lord is slow to anger and great in power;
The Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished.
His way is in the whirlwind and the storm,
And clouds are dust of his feet.
Nahum 1:3


  1. I love the blue and white puffy clouds also, but that second one is AMAZING! love it... easier to find the puffy ones than the ominous.. good job on sky watching and grabbing it for us to see

  2. A few minutes can make a huge difference in the sky. It makes it hard to stop watching!

  6. your last picture is my second favorite.But my fav is the second one of the threatening sky. Way down below, I think I see sun rays!!

  7. Never tire of seeing nature at her best. Nicely done.

  8. Each and every one of those photos is absolutely beautiful. You have a great eye and got wonderul captures.

  9. Whenever I look at clouds with my boyfriend he will tell me what they are called as he is a pilot for fun so knows that stuff.

  10. I remember as a kid, how we would lay out on a blanket in the front yard and watch the clouds in the sky.....It's funny to think back about all the little animals and other things we would find in the clouds. so many different shapes. great memories...

  11. Hi Ruth, You knew I would love this post. When you said, "I think a sky like this is so beautiful and have a hard time not getting yet another and another shot." ... Absolutely the same for me! :-) Clouds and sky = some of my favorite photos. As usual, at Ruth's Photo Blog, it is hard for me to pick a favorite ... all your pics are so good! Well, this time I'm going to go with the last picture. Prairie country has a special place in my heart. I admire you being able to get out and enjoy that beautiful country. Thanks for sharing, Ruth, and have a great day. Can't go without complimenting you on your new May header ... you are the best with new headers every month! John

  12. There is not many things I'd rather do than watch clouds. Your photos have captured some breathtaking formations, Ruthie!

  13. The one looking more to the east resembles a ufo, kinda sorta. I like 'em all. (And, I too, like watching clouds)

  14. You have certainly captured some amazing shots!
    Those cloud formations are all so very unique, and tho think that you were surrounded by them all.

    Yesterday we had snow and I was able to capture some shots at the right time because soon after the beauty had changed.

    Thank you for always sharing such beauty with us ♡
