Uluru – Northern Territory June 2016 (12 photos)
Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way
But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all.
… Both sides, Now. Joni Mitchell (1967).
During my time at Uluru, we had a mixture of completely clear days and cloudy days. As impressive and iconic as Uluru is to photograph, the inclusion of some interesting clouds above it can significantly add to the quality of the photo. Kind of like putting the icing or a cherry on top of a cake.
I hope you enjoy this simple and gratuitous pageant of clouds, perhaps more correctly termed #cloudporn. All of these photos were taken above Uluru itself, or near it.
There is some confusion about the correct common noun for a group of clouds. A pageant of clouds is one of the suggestions which I like.
This is the third post about my trip to Uluru. Thanks for sharing the journey with me. More to come.
