Usually if someone says “oh, she has her head in the clouds” it is a sign that the commenter believes the person is being unrealistic. As a naturally optimistic creative human-being, these sentiments are something that I have often endured . I easily shrug them off. A life of joy is simply too much fun to allow such sour grapes to over-ride the obvious. So here are fourteen photographic good reasons for having your head in the clouds.
It all started with these wild and wonderful mares tails that I spotted at Village Bay as we left for Victoria yesterday.
Wouldn’t you just like to swing on these wisps for awhile? Which do you prefer – portrait
(Yes, I left that little bit of tree and hill in on purpose.)
with just clouds?
But these are nothing compared to what is to come. On our return trip, the sky at the Swartz Bay terminal really starts to dance.
Who is trying to peek at us?
It is getting late and a bit of colour is breaking through.
The Mayne Queen is loading. Let me get Miss Prissy aboard so we can head up on the top deck and see what we can see. Are you ready to do a twirl or seven?
I want you to remind you that I am taking these on a small moving passenger ship in very low light. A tripod, even if I had one with me, would be useless because of the vibration from the diesel engine and the ship’s rippling movement over the sea. So enjoy the soft focus and relax.
Can you feel the swish of calm?
Only to have the energy build and expanse one last time…
It is getting cool. I head back to my old pick-up truck and grab my shawl to enjoy the last of the light as night settles in…
Sprout question: When was the last time you were accused of having your head in the clouds?
p.s. I do have new grandson Isaac photos too. That post will be up for Friday.
