Billowing and bellowing, as far as I am concerned. That is the kind of sky we are dealing with here. A rather blustery day, Pooh might say. The clouds roll like the hills of Yorkshire, I understand. Or the waves of the Pacific, if you are into that sort of thing. Those two darker gray splotches near the Northwest look similar to eyes. If we can accept that, then the bright light area and the dark bar underneath are a nose/mouth or nose/mustache combo. Honestly, once we discovered the face, it ruined the rest of the sky. It is difficult to concentrate on the murky bits to the East now. If the same has afflicted you, our apologies. 9.1/10

We decided to go with a close up shot today. It is a deviation from the norm, we know, but this one is worth it. This whole day was chock full of intriguing cloud portraits, actually. This just happens to be the one we went with. A new flavor of ice cream based on this example would be called Ethereal Swirl, I imagine. These drops of periwinkle whisked in with the cream puffs look delightful, and probably taste even better. Some sort of Wyvern or sky serpent appears to be crossing over the Northeast section. We only see the body, and maybe a hint of a claw, but the rest remains a mystery. 9.4/10

The way the three lights along the horizontal axis line up make it feel like we are all on an alien planet. Very cool. In all seriousness though, we have no idea what those two lights beside the sun are. UFOs, maybe, or breaks in our cloud cover. Regardless, their symmetry is impeccable; they must have coordinated it. The clouds make a satisfying curtain, which mutes the intense light we see in those center three areas. We can tell it is been thoroughly used, from the worn marks near the South and Southeast. If the curtain ever gets pulled, it will be interesting to see what is on the other side. 9.7/10

Great palette today. We have traditional grays and whites, as well as dark blue in the background, and the yellow of the branches. Shot from a new vantage point today, which is why we get to see those complimentary trees. We could have gone to the usual place, but this shot was too good to resist. This sky elicits the image of a pastry of some sort. The trees make a crumbly crust, the solid blue sky forms a dense filling, and the clouds make perfect whipped cream. Certainly a creation that would make both bakers and astronomers jealous. 9.8/10

What a way to end the week. A beautiful, conflicting sky that mixes warmth and chill. This picture was taken at dusk, so we get to see bright moonlight on the right, and the receding glow traveling to the left. A small beacon of illumination breaks through the chaos, near the tiny cavern to the center right. It could be a single star, or a plane. It all looks the same from here. There is something comforting about knowing that, the object we observe could be a fireball many times the size of our own planet, or a metal carriage carrying people. To us on the ground, they are equal in this cosmic desert. 10/10
