Foto Friday - Clouds

Playing beneath the wide blue sky, the girls look so small!
I enjoyed taking part in Foto Friday last week so much that I actually took some photos on purpose this week so I could join in again! Thank you to everyone who left a comment last week, I really appreciated your kind words. I love to get comments...they make my day!

The challenge for this week was clouds. I took the photo above yesterday when the Podlings and I were out enjoying the fresh air and blue skies together. The photo below is my rather poor attempt at being arty and trying to make clover look like clouds. Not an easy shot to achieve since clover aren't very tall, so I had to pretty much put the camera on the floor, angle it slightly and hope the focus was okay because I couldn't see what I was doing! My camera is only a little point and shoot, so all things considered I think the picture turned out okay. I had to take quite a few shots to get this one though!

I have to laugh about the clover because I had the same experience with violets in the early spring. They just don't grow high enough!

I like the wide expanse of sky in your first shot. With the kids playing and running I can almost feel the fresh air.

I think both your pictures are lovely. I can "feel" the carefree day as the children run in the grass on a summer day. And your clover picture is really neat. A unique perspective!

You did a good job with your cloud pictures...the wide open grassy area is so cool. God has given us beauty in abundance to enjoy wherever we are.

I love the first one. How sweet with the babies. Great job!

I really like the second picture especially. Still clouds, but a very unusual perspective of them. Way to think outside the box!
