my sky


I've looked at clouds from both sides now ....
props to Ms Joni Mitchell


It was looking a tad 'noise-y' so I sprinkled un soupçon of Picnik's canvas effect

  2. THIS Cloud(ia) thinks that's a smashing picture of my relatives. Thanks for the little lesson in using the "canvas" or "texture" effect.


    Aloha from Hawaiian skies, Dar!

  28. Hey! You! Get off of my cloud! Those definitely look like thunderheads, which I've always loved to look at while lying on my back in green grass. Not. In. Snow.

  29. It almost has a 3-d efffect, and it straddles the fence between photograph and animation, if that makes any sense.

  30. Reminds me of the ceiling at Caesars Palace in Vegas...
