Clouds … No Illusions After All…

Throughout history, Dutch landscape painters have been famous for capturing the intricacies of clouds and weather and presenting them on canvas. Driving along the coast during a Kiwidutch Family Easter break, we find the weather very changeable, and therefore too the clouds. My canvas is a computer screen and my tools: a small digital camera chip inside a digital camera. At this point in history, with a camera in almost every phone, everyone is becoming a roving photographer, myself included. I prefer my “big camera” to using my mobile phone camera but the principle remains the same. I am driven to record things that I find interesting, different, beautiful. Mother Nature provides plenty of material so even when I’m just a passenger in a car, I can have “clouds illusions” that I am recording beautiful things. Of course I am a realist, there are far better photographers who could make amazing material out of this situation, for me though, no illusions, just an attempt to capture beautiful clouds.

We always seem to see “things” in clouds… the one below, a large mitten perhaps?
