Classic Cloud Contest - Gozo Trip


In a recent reply to a comment I left on @exyle's post, @kus-knee encouraged me to enter his door knocker photography contest. I used to enter all his 'Mundane Art' contests back in the day but, those of you who have followed me for a while will know, I don't post much at all these days. However, when I saw that this week's theme was clouds I couldn't resist. 😁

Fnd out more here - The Classic Cloud Contest!


It was fun looking through my photographs to find something suitable and also quite a challenge ro find pics where the clouds are the main focus. In the end I had loads of options though and decided to go with these 2 from our most recent trip to Gozo.

Clouds Reflected

I chose this photograph because I love the way there are clouds in the mirror but none in the sky. 😁


Blanket of Clouds

And I chose this one because . . . well just because. 😂

I'm always reminded of cotton wool when I see clouds like this from a plane.

As a child I used to imagine myself walking out on them and lying down and being enveloped as if by a big fluffy duvet and, as an adult, it still seems a possibility somehow. 😂

Some lovely cloud pictures Gillian. Like you i can imagine waking on their softness

Thanks @phonetix. 😊

Nice clouds! I would love to sit on a cloud one day just like the Chinese Monkey King! He traveled everywhere on a cloys, just like magic carpet!

Thanks @kaminchan. I like that magic carpet idea. 😁

A couple of well achieved photos, @gillianpearce. Wonderful captures! 😊

Thank you @trincowski and sorry for the upvote not reaching the dust threshold. I should have checked first. Thought I'd be OK with 55% but it seems not. 😢

No worries. After the fork, it's pointless to upvote for comments unless you have a lot of Steem Power. I prefer to thank people by answering the comments and giving them a vote in one of their posts instead.
