Still Learning To See

Clouds from the ground

Clouds, viewed either from the airplane window and from the ground, can be such gorgeously dynamic events. While some people read them for upcoming weather, I tend to just enjoy the visual pleasure of so many shades of white and gray against a blue sky.

Here in Vermont we don’t often see the towering cumulus clouds that are common this time of year in the midwest so it was a great treat to be on the east side of the Rocky Mountains last week and watch the clouds forming nearly every afternoon and often dissipating in the evening.

I find the combination of the clouds set against the silhouetted mountains, still painted with patches of snow, to be particularly stunning. Add the colors of a sunset and—voila!—magic happens.
