The Sky Stallion

I have a thing about clouds and how their formations pull on the imagination. I see a mighty horse rearing up and trying to pull itself free from the clouds, being born of the elements.

An Opening In The Clouds

I have a thing for shafts of sunlight as they break through cloud. It can happen and change so quickly the moment is over all too soon. And as the old saying goes, considering the goings-on around the world at present, ‘every cloud has a silver lining’.

Painted Skies

I took this a few years ago one early summer morning. There is no post-processing here. Nature is the artist, painting the clouds and the dawn light.

Gateway To The Sun

Storm Clouds

I love dramatic skies, especially as storms are looming or lumbering past. I love the way you can see the silver linings on clouds and the peeking sun and reflecting light amidst these huge and dark, floating behemoths.
