But I was sure that most of the cloud photos in my own files would be of dark, forbidding, foreboding clouds, full of drama and threat. Maybe it’s a reflection of my mood, in the face of news of my country and our world?

When I actually went looking I was surprised and pleased to find that, in reality, most of my cloud photos are dramatic, yes, but with the drama of sun dispelling darkness, of light peeping through, of hope.

Serried: Ragtag Daily Prompt

My blog pal, Margaret, participates in a daily prompt for photos and writing and other forms of expression.

Her first choice of prompts is the word “serried,” and the word and the woman have inspired me to re-visit some photos from a trip to Scotland and Cornwall.
