That new lens was sure worth it! That is a beautiful picture!

This reminds me of a scary/creepy movie that I haven't been able to put out of my mind, The Mist.

Put your ear to your computer screen.

You can hear the angels' laughter.

George Carlin has arrived.

Meade said...

George C: What the?

Angels (handing George his frisbee): Looking for this?

Very nice.

The Cloud Appreciation Society


What a blissed out pastime.

The clouds the clouds kept building
But never did they burst,
Like a suspenseful yearning
That cannot quench its thirst.

Best Peanuts Sunday strip ever:

Lucy, Linus, and Charlie Brown are lying on the baseball mound looking at clouds.

Lucy asks Linus what he sees.

"Well," replies Linus, "Those clouds up there look to me like the map of the British Honduras on the Caribbean, and that cloud up there looks a little like the profile of Thomas Eakins, the famous painter and sculptor. And that group of clouds over there gives me the impression of the stoning of Stephen. I can see the apostle Paul standing there to one side."

"Uh huh," says Lucy. "That's very good. What do YOU see in the clouds, Charlie Brown?"

Charlie Brown says, "Well, I was going to say I saw a ducky and a horsy, but I changed my mind."

Hey, it's a close-up of Carly Simon's coffee!

Ron said...

Pogo, You're so vain, those are possums playing in the clouds of Carly Simon's coffee...you know...keeping a low profile.

KCFleming said...

Vain? Me?
Why I don't even know how to watch myself gavotte.

Does it hurt?
Does it involve batteries?
Is it legal in most states?
Does it leave a mark?

What does it mean when the legal community waits to see what the Supreme Court decides.

``Ohio Clouds

spring in Ohio is storms
and clouds, the great and sudden
mountains, the first ranges,
the terrible descent''

yesterday (Sunday)
Today on the way to the store
Backyard home from the store

rhhardin said...

added sunset clouds, with Wellbrook ALA-1530 active loop, from just now.

Thunderstorm over Gratiot, Ohio.

AmPowerBlog said...

Is Barack up there somewhere?

American Power

Meade said...

Look Out, RHHardin in Gratiot, Ohio!

rhhardin said...

Gratiot is 30 miles away.

cardeblu said...

Wagner instantaneously came to mind.

Meade said...

Whew! That was close.

reader_iam said...

How 'bout that sun in eyes and rain on face?

Of course this version is better, though not the best, which, it seems, is not available.

Ain't that just perfect, or what?

reader_iam said...

To be clear, I think there are three Armatrading songs that more specifically speak to the Althouse phenomenon. They just don't happen to fit best at the moment.

Dana said...

Nice grab of an ink stained sky.

chuck b. said...

I'm the only one who saw The Mist?

blake said...

No, Chuck, I saw it. It just didn't leave an emotional scar....
