We were driving back from Meschen a couple of days ago when I saw these beautiful cloud formations where the light was breaking through the thick cover and creating these beautiful effects that resemble light pouring through cathedral windows. I suspect the reverse is true, which is to say that cathedral architects were inspired by this natural phenomenon when they designed buildings where the light comes in like this at certain times of the day. Enjoy the photos!
Can you think of a better reward for getting up early than the dawn sky?
Or how about this one?
This is a super-happy cartoon about the life of clouds. It’ll perk you right up! 🙂

Back in 2006, when I got serious about photography, we went up to the roof of our apartment building and were rewarded with a beautiful evening sky and sunset. You know how it is, you always remember the first time, it seems more magical somehow, and this time it was no different. The sky and the sun looked gorgeous.
A lovely timescape (time lapse) video by Simon Christen, featuring photographs taken over the course of a year in the San Francisco Bay Area. I like the soundtrack, too.
