Feather Canyons Everywhere

Alas, winter is creeping into southern California. And as it should, what with the winter solstice fast approaching. There is a distinct chill in the air, particularly in the mornings and evenings. We've also had heaps of rain, and the most amazing sunsets and cloud shows have been performing across the early evening skies of late.

I have a thing about photographing clouds. They break up all that monotonously blue LA sky and when they part to let the divine sunlight break through, it's such a glorious sight. I hum a certain Joni Mitchell tune whenever I gaze up at the sky.

Which Joni! Which Joni! I can think of a few that would be perfect with these gorgeous sky scenes. Isn't she just the bestest?

My all time Joni fave is 'A Case of You'...it's one of those songs that makes me wish I had a great singing voice so that I could belt it out at the top of my lungs (of course I do it anyway but I wish it sounded just a little better, you know?)

Those clouds... such brilliance and splendor above.

citysage: 'Both Sides Now', of course! 'A Case of You' is a lovely Canadian anthem.


Gracia: I'm glad you agree!
