When the world lets you see its lovely face on a beautiful morning like this.

You are humbled, mesmerized, awed and dazzled.

When  the morning brings such beauty

before your eyes.

When the morning sun reflects its light

on these  lovely cotton candy clouds,

be thankful….it is enough!

Yesterday was another busy day for me –   doing  never-ending household chores, preparing meals for the day and tending my small garden. I had to trim the carabao grass because I could no longer  use the stepping-stones, they were almost covered with the fast-growing ground cover.  I think I sweated a pint (this is no exaggeration) when I finished trimming the front of the garden.  It was that kind of perfect weather, blue sky and a gentle breeze blowing softly  and the dogs were happy because they had company. Then I looked up and saw these clouds rolling by as if they were late for a rendezvous. I couldn’t run fast  enough to get my camera and take a few shots. See how quickly they move and change course.

I am a cloud-watcher. Since I was a child I have always been fascinated by clouds.  I could not count the times I took shots of clouds and blogged about them. Next to my macro photos on flowers, clouds are my favorite subject.

Rabindranath Tagore described clouds beautifully when he said  “Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

One of my favorite subjects in photography – clouds. I love the mystery they evoke, what could be hiding behind those thick formations up there? I love watching  them drift by. Then I remember a quote from Rabindranath Tagore, “Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

And I  do remember taking this shot more than two years ago when my kids and I  went to the cemetery in our home province to visit Dad’s grave.  Another sunset scene when the heart is so vulnerable it breaks into silent tears of goodbye.

At first, I didn’t actually like these shots but on second look, they have a redeeming feature, my favorite subject – clouds. And the sun showing its face in the shadows of the Arch of the Centuries of my alma mater, the University of Santo Tomas!

A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed… It feels an impulsion… this is the place to go now.  But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.  ~Richard Bach

And it always gives me joy every time there is an opportunity to take a few shots.  I love the mystery it possesses and the grandeur of life it always makes me feel.  Clouds – you’re again hovering near!

I was actually trying to take some shots of the clouds one sunny afternoon at SCTEX on our way to Manila from Pangasinan, but the sun showing its  almost perfect orb was just a bonus. I took these series of shots from the car, never even focusing  on the subject properly.  It tried to hide its face behind those thick clouds  but its rays were still visible somehow.

I’ve finally been able to find my missing CD for my camera’s  Zoom browser.  Every picture I uploaded before has been erased when we re-programmed the PC I am using so I have to go back as early  as May of last year. My gosh, how have I accumulated so many pictures?  Clouds and flowers are  my favorite subjects so be sure they’ll be here in the succeeding days. Here’s hello to more photographs by 2012.
