Waiheke Island, New Zealand
When the tallest thing around is a palm tree, the sky seems a whole lot bigger.
Call me a nerd, but one of the things I most enjoyed about Fiji was the extravagant cloud formations. Almost every day, there would be some vast, abstract masterpiece splashed across the sky.
Often, there would be a whole catalogue of cloud ‘types’ jumbled up together: sheep’s wool cumulus and mare’s tails, a mackerel sky, lenticular pancakes and anvils of thunder.
I left it a bit late in the season to make any real photographic study of them, but here’s a selection of Fiji skies…

Oh my god! I can’t believe that I’m suggesting this, but you – like Ray – could become a signed-up, bona-fide member of the Cloud Appreciation Society (http://cloudappreciationsociety.org/).
And – as you know Ray – I KNOW you know I’m serious! 🙂
Ooh, thanks for the link – I will have to sign up!! xx
