Mostly Cloudy

Strawberry Island

Strawberry Island

Still doing photos from last summer. How did I ever manage to get such a backlog? This photo is from a cloudy, windy August day in northeastern Wiscosnin’s Door County. I spent a long afternoon sitting on the beach watching the clouds drift over Strawberry Island. I remember thinking everyone else was in such a hurry to go see something, go do something. I was pretty satisfied doing what I was doing — thinking about “stuff” and watching the clouds drift by. Once in awhile I’d pick up my camera and take a couple of photos.

Aren’t those clouds something to behold?

    The most gorgeous cloud-scape. Can’t imagine wanting to do anything more on a beautiful summer’s day..other than watch the clouds drift by.

    Nice pix. Did you have a nice cold beer to go with your musings on that wonderful summmer day?

    Gandalf– Sherpa has the beer, I stick with Diet Coke . . . or tequila when I’m in that kind of mood. πŸ™‚

    Clouds can make or break an image. They certainly make this image! Great catch. πŸ™‚

    Very dramatic clouds–although I can see a dog liking his mustachioed master if I kind of squint on the two clouds on the far right.

    Sigh. I want to sit on the beach, think about “stuff” and watch beautiful clouds like this! So nice. How did you process this one? A little HDR action of some sort?

    This is beautiful in black & white dramatizing the clouds. I love cloudscapes. πŸ™‚

    Sometimes I find myself watching the clouds go by without thinking much at all. When you can find such enjoyment from doing so little… I think you are on to something. Then life kicks in and off you go again.

    Gorgeous, Bo!

    I’m not sure what took me so long to comment on this photograph… it’s dramatic, beautiful and well suited for black and white. Well done.
