New Video Release

October 11, 2018

As an adjunct to this site and my YouTube Channel, a new video series began today:  Sonoran Desert Skyscapes.  The first in the series is simply entitled Sonoran Desert Skyscapes - Episode 1 and features images captured on August 16-17, 2018, the height of monsoon season in the Arizona desert. 

The videos in this series will include stylistic slideshows with photographs, some artistically modified, and other video clips featuring anything worth capturing up in the sky — radical or unusual weather, beautiful and interesting cloud formations, sunsets, sunrises, birds, moons, planets, stars, and even aircraft.  Jet contrails are not only beautiful in themselves, but contribute to some of the most interesting cloud shapes and art-worthy happenings up in the sky.  See video linked above for more information.     

About Galleries

September 5, 2018, Wed.

Today I published the first in a series of skyscape galleries that will be identified by date.  Each gallery consists of a collection of photographs of clouds taken on that day usually around sunset and that remain unedited for the most part.  This way the cloud formations and transformations of the sky and any underlying landscape can be fully appreciated.  I still plan to display specific collections of a particular type of cloud orskyscape - say for instance examples of Virga.  If that is the case it will be so entitled so they can be differentiated from the unedited cloudscapes displayed by date.  Then of course photos that can be purchased for wall hanging and in personal accessories and items of home decor will always appear in the Arizona Artware gallery with clickable links to that site.  Then don't forget to check out the blog which will include videos and in depth analysis and discussion to complement the photos.  Thanks!

Blog Comments

July 23, 2018, Sun.

I initially planned to enable comments to my blog but have since changed my mind.  I'm trying to simplify my life.  As cloud lovers we understand that while a cloud can appear very simple, it is actually quite complex.  And if there's anything I've learned about clouds, it's that you cannot trust or control them.  If you take them on their terms, then you remain problem free.  But if you begin to think otherwise, you're in for a big surprise.  Now for those who cannot read between the lines, I'm talking about all kinds of clouds here -- especially the virtual ones.  Today I have divorced myself from "the cloud" for this reason.  However, I still encourage comments and engagement - it just won't be here.  Please consider sending them to me via email.  Plus, if you'd like to receive notification of when I've posted new material, then please subscribe to my wayward newsletter.  It will be published on an irregular basis - probably only when I do have something new to say, so you definitely won't be bothered with unwanted email!  

Galleries & Collections

July 15, 2018

Coming Soon!  First gallery up will be a duplicate of what's already online in the Dances with Cloud Kachina Gallery at Arizona Artware.  I also plan to add specialized ones as my edited and published cloudscapes grow.  I already have hundreds good enough to be worked on so I'll never have a shortage of material, and hundreds are added on a weekly basis.  Collections will also feature photo essays on kinds of cloudscapes like Kelvin-Helmholz for example.  Those may be rare elsewhere but not in the Sonoran Desert, and I have the photos and videos to prove it!  How about double-rainbows?  Contrails?  Anti-crepuscular rays?  Virga?  Etc.?  I have LOADS!  So please stay tuned!
