I’ve become a bit of a cloud geek recently. I don’t know the names for all the different types, and have no intention of memorising them, because I won’t remember. But I do like pretty ones, and dramatic ones, and in particular have noticed a difference between British clouds and Icelandic clouds (Icelandic ones seem nearer). If you’re a nerdier cloud geek than I, and want to explain why this is to me, bearing in mind that I know different clouds settle at different heights, and that’s not what I mean by seeming nearer, then feel free to explain. Otherwise, I shall remain happy in my ignorance and wonderment, and continue to post pretty pictures of clouds on this special cloudy page of my blog.

I thought I’d start with some pictures I took this weekend as I was wandering up to the Brudenell to see the wonderful Laura J Martin play some songs. I may have taken a little longer to get there than hoped, as I saw some friends as I was walking past The Well (formerly Joseph’s, but I guess Joseph must have got bored). I stopped for a compulsory drink, which then meant I got even more easily distracted by the delights in the sky.
Here we go then, in no particular order:
Well I’m watching The Lost Boys for the first time ever and I can’t help wishing I’d watched it back in 1987 when I wouldn’t have noticed all the awful perms and hammy acting. Mind you, I’m not complaining about Keifer Sutherland in eyeliner, even if he does have a dodgy dye job to go with it. So while my mind wanders a bit, I thought I’d bring you some more cloud pictures from the archive. These ones were taken on my way home and outside my house in early June 2010 – I like the fact I’ve got country village at one side of my house and urban sunset the other. Anyway – here y’go:
