Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society, calls for us all to take a step off the digital treadmill, lie back and admire the beauty in the sky above. This is one of my favourite TED Talks – Cloudy with a chance of joy.
What a wonderful way to spend time outdoors, relaxing, taking some time out and appreciating nature.
If it got you thinking about clouds a bit more. Here’s another great little video from The UK Met Office a – Cloud Spotting Guide.
It really made me want to get outside, find a comfortable spot, sit down and look up – so that’s what I did.
Here are my sky blue cloudspotting photos taken near to where I live.
The Manifesto of The Cloud Appreciation Society
everyone can have a fantastic view of them.
We seek to remind people that clouds are expressions of the atmosphere’s moods, and can be read like those of a person’s countenance.
And so we say to all who’ll listen: Look up, marvel at the ephemeral beauty, and live life with your head in the clouds!
Today’s colour is Sky Blue
Have you ever spent some time cloudspotting? If not, are you more tempted to look up now?
