Ah, clouds. Giant fluffy bits of candy floss floating leisurely in a perfect sky. Or rain filled destroyers of beach holidays. However you feel about clouds, they pretty much always manage to provide ample opportunity for photography, from sunny days to sunsets, thunderstorms to odd shapes.
Here are a few of my more favourite cloud photos, taken over the last couple of years, featuring sunsets, cloud patterns, giant fluffy clouds and, well, you get the idea.
Don’t forget, if you like these photos, you can now share them with friends via the new “share” option under each shot, and even buy prints or canvas versions from the high resolution originals, via the toolbar under each image. Enjoy!
These beams of light from a sunset in the Australian outback are known as Anticrepuscular rays, which may be my new favourite word of the day.
Clouds reflecting on the beach of Fraser Island, Australia. This would also have fitted in nicely with my recent reflections photo theme post!
A cloud hovers wonderfully over the top of Mount Bogong – the highest peak in Australia’s Victorian Alps.
