Skywatch Friday


Clouds

They huff and puff across the sky
The children sit and wonder why
White and fluffy cotton balls
Ice cream castles, snowy halls,
And then the wind gets mad one day
It turns the clouds the color gray
It pours the cold rain down on them,
They sit and wonder if again,
White cloud ships will huff and puff
On pink and blue and all that stuff.
~Kathie circa 1970

Lovely cloud photo. In one of my earlier posts, you mentioned you did not know what the foil fill technique was. It's where I use aluminum foil taped to a piece of cardboard to reflect like back onto the subject. I use it on close ups to add light to the shadowed side of the subject. It would've worked well on the cactus photos you posted.
