"Her head is in the clouds", I am sure some would say of me! While I would have to disagree with that, I would agree with you if you said "she is into clouds!" Lately clouds have been capturing my attention and I have been investing more time in admiring them plus trying to understand and analyze them. I am noticing too that my friends are devoting a little more attention to the unusual cloud formations we have been fortunate enough to view lately.
Have the clouds always been so dramatic and beautiful looking? How could I have not previously seen what I am noticing now? If you are one of my loyal followers, you may have noticed my sharing of specific cloud photos the last little while. I had a thought back on October 21, 2012 which I eluded to, that I had another idea about learning to share here. Well, it's now finally time, plus I have the time, to give that thought credence.
I checked through albums where I remembered there were outstanding cloud photos. Thinking back, the first time I remember clouds stopping me in my tracks was in May of 2011 in Moab which is #1 below. Here are twelve of the dozens of wonderful cloud photos I have.

I purchased "A Pocket Naturalist Guide" which will now be a staple in my backpack.
It is a laminated chart showing and describing the many different types of clouds and their meaning.
I have already been able to identify some of the clouds in the photos above but others have left me wondering. I have more learning to do! I always love blue bird sky days but I am also now appreciating a sky scattered with harmless clouds.
