Reading the Clouds

Monday, December 3, 2007

I've always been a watcher of the sky.

I'm fascinated by its ever-changing visage and by how one can read the clouds to predict what weather is to come.

One evening during our recent trip to New Mexico the clouds, wind, and sunset combined to create this scene above. I at once thought the pink clouds looked like a woman praying or perhaps about to leap into action from a crouch.

Today I looked at the wider shot (below) and thought it might be a chomping crocodile. Crouching Woman, Hidden Crocodile.

What do you see? Woman or crocodile or something else all together?

A man bursting forth from the palm of God.

I see the crocodile (or is it a 'gator?)


(welcome back!)

Croc, most definitely :)

Definitely a crocodile from my perspective. I'm a sky gazer, too.

Crocodile or aligator...very interesting clouds!
