Pangkor island and Hoi An look good, and those sand yachts take me back to similar on the Pembrokeshire coast….
I would have loved to see those sand yachts in motion!
Huge fun, I recall!
Wow… What a beautiful set of sky/cloud photo gallery around the world!! Thank you for sharing these special moments with us.
It was fun to go looking through my archives in the search for cloud shots!
Beautiful gallery – Pangkor sunset simply stunning!
We did most of our viewing of the Pangkor sunset from a little cafe on the beach where we sat with our feet in the sand eating wonderful Malaysian food.
Wow! The whole gallery! The Bangkok photo is almost spiritual, isn’t it? Love the softness of the lighthouse photo and I especially love the shrine and cross.
What always surprises me is how different the clouds are in humid places, like Bangkok, and arid places like the High Andes…
Yes. Driven by what surrounds us.
Great selections, great variety. Excellent.
I had a lot of fun searching for clouds…
What a wonderful album! All the moods of the sky
You make the sky sound like a person – capable of being sunny one moment and raining on your parade the next…
Doesn’t it though?
If only you could visit more places Elizabeth 😊. Glorious skies from around the world, my favorite is the cross. Beautiful in its simplicity. Terrific set of images.
Due to heavy-duty construction where I live, my computer sat in my closet for almost two months. I’ve finally got it up and running again and having so much fun revisiting places I’ve travelled to…
