Anyone who knows me, knows I take pictures of clouds. Lots of pictures. Of clouds.
My husband rolls his eyes at me. “They’re clouds, right? In the sky? Again?”
However, despite the ribbing, I do enjoy them. They are always different, even from one moment to the next.
Naturally, it did help that my office was on the second floor – facing west! Is that not the best exposure ever??
I haven’t checked, but it is possible that I have a cloud photo for every day of the year (not in one year – more on that later), spread out over a couple of years.
One of my favorite shots ever is of a supercell storm at sunset in South Dakota – bright blue above and shocking orange below! (You’ll have to wait for me to start an Images of America blog for my non-Lake County photos!)
Anyway, what I’m trying to get to is, it’s been more than two weeks since I started this blog, and I have yet to post a cloud picture! I know, right?
I thought I might just pop up a couple today, since I have to post early anyway. These are some of what I consider my best – I’ve even made a screensaver slideshow out of my favorites. Some of them even got published in a local newspaper, the Lake County Journal (full disclosure – I work for them, but it was the editor’s idea, not mine).
So here we are. Oh, why don’t I get a shot every day? I consider it a small victory I am still posting every day, after two weeks! Usually, something would’ve come up by now or I would’ve come up with some excuse not to keep going. I’m really bad at starting habits! I know there are many out there taking pictures every day (I’m following a few), and that is eventually my goal, but for now, if I can post every day? Score!
P.S. And if you want to see someone who’s on his FOURTH year of a cloud shot EVERY DAY, check out Kelly DeLay at www.clouds365.com. He takes submissions, too. I’ve dropped a couple there in the past.
