Clouds Both Sullen And With A Sunny Disposition…

Our 2017 Easter travels back to the Hague, transversed the Dutch provinces of Zeeland and South Holland. Whilst taking photographs from the front passenger seat, I could not help but notice the differences in the clouds close by. One side was dark, threatening, low and sullen, looking like a storm was brewing and warning that we better get ready for wind and rain. The other side: lighter, fluffy, with the blue sky background and a sunny disposition. The flat landscape gives a larger canvas for the sky, so it’s changing forms are a fascination for more than just the artists who struggle to get clouds to look right in whatever medium they are using. I also especially bad a drawing clouds. Luckily the coastal location of The Hague means a good deal of wind and multiple weather changes, often in one day, or a morning or afternoon, or even an hour. We also see some unusual overpasses, but it’s the clouds that really grab my attention.  More material for my reference files.
