I love clouds.  If you’ve seen my Facebook albums, on particularly pretty days, I love taking pictures of the sky.  Since school is rather crazy now with two 4.5 week classes getting ready for midterms, I’m posting some pictures of clouds both from online sources and from my own collection.

Low-anchored cloud,
Newfoundland air,
Fountain-head and source of rivers,
Dew-cloth, dream-drapery,
And napkin spread by fays;
Drifting meadow of the air,
Where bloom the daisied banks and violets,
And in whose fenny labyrinth
The bittern booms and heron wades;
Spirit of lakes and seas and rivers,
Bear only perfumes and the scent
Of healing herbs to just men’s fields!

– Henry David Thoreau
