Fabulous photos, Delwyn. The view from seven miles up is so nice sometimes. A real high, as we said way back when in San Francisco.A neighbor has a bumper sticker on her car that your poem reminded me of. It says,"If you lived in your heart, you'd be home now."
These beautiful photos have a quiet melancholy feel to them, almost a peaceful sadness, Delwyn.♥...Wanda
And so ... you will never be lost.Good to have you and your dear heart back in this virtual sphere Delwyn.
Beautiful! I especially like "on a bed of cloud, I lay my wondering down." This is a wonderful image/concept, the kind that takes you to the place it's telling you about it.
Spectacular cloud photos, Delwyn - somewhat ominous, but also holding that gift of light at the fringe.
So lovely and thoughtful. I love the feeling of flying through or over clouds, makes me feel dreamy, hopeful.I'm glad to know your home safe and sound. I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip.xo lori
I love being above the clouds; if we could only step out onto them. Hope you had a special time in NZ with your family. xa
I so enjoyed this post. I'm flying out of town soon and I hope the clouds will be this beautiful. I hope you had a wonderful visit with your family!
I feel like I'm in another would once you go above the clouds but always peaceful.
Hi Danyep you can't get much higher in the physical plane...I like your neighbour's sticker too...Happy days my friend
Hi there WandaI am going to write you a note...happy days
Thank you Bonnieit is nice to be back amongst kindred spirits...Happy days
Hello PollyIt just felt right as I was being carried over that great ocean of cloud to rest my wondering and lay it out...Happy days
Hi Barbthe photos, I see on looking again do have that dark mood, but from way up there it was very peaceful and mellow...at sunrise over the Pacific nearing Australia...Happy days
Hi Lorithanks for the welcome...I am preparing some NZ posts with an account of my days there...Happy days
Hi AlaineI have always thought how lovely it would be to roll in them, they appear so supportive and soft...It was good to spend time with my aging parents...and appreciate my health and the great fortune of living here in Qld...Happy days
Thank you Alexis,It was a good catch up with my parents.I hope you enjoy your break away from home and get to see some downy clouds...happy days
Hi LissIt is hard to comprehend that you can be hurtling through the sky on top of the clouds...for me it pays not to think too much of the mechanics and enjoy the views and the floating sensation...happy days
Sunset above the clouds is spectacular.
The pics are simply gorgeous. I am so into sunset and sunrises so these really caught my attention. What an awesome angle.
delwyn thankyou for these breathtaking photos. the words are transporting!!! i have often wished i could be up there and spend time just looking around. a glider perhaps, a balloon, or a huge comfortable dirigible. just floating aimlessly around. have a sweet day. steven
DelwynWhat lovely and breathing pictures! Thank-You for sharing and have a great week.BestTracy :)
DelwynSorry--that's breathtaking pictures!BestTracy :)
I know that I am repeating a lot of comments but these are so oh so beautiful. You are very good at capturing these sky scenes.
Delwyn, your photos took my breath away. And your words only added to their beauty. Thanks for sharing. Blessings!!
Delwyn, you are a miracle worker, with words and camera.I love your new blog too; this was the format I tried for myself, but I tend to be too wordy; the format didn't work half as well for my blog as it does for yours.
Delwyn - That second shot looks like the surface of some exotic planet.Nice to see you back, safe and sound.
You capture the lighting and mood very well in your photos and verse. Hours in the air, and endearment in the heart.
Hi EllenI think that one of the most wonderful things to experience in life is to see a new day dawn from this altitude, or a day slide away below the cloud. The horizon is so immense and the cloud like nothing else we encounter...Happy days
Hello Gaiait is nice to have you drop by again.I have to thank the pilot of the trans pacific flight for these shots...Happy days
Hi Stevenme too...I would like to try a hot air balloon but must admit I might be a little scared...they float over the Canterbury plains from Christchurch, that would be amazing, ocean to one side and high mountains to the other...NZ is so skinny...flying over the Southern Alps is a great visual experience, but I have experienced the plane bucking like a wild bull as it meets the air rising off the plains...Happy days
Hello traceyhow are you?I hope all went well.Happy days
Hi Larrywell really this time all I had to do was remove the lens cap...the sights were there right out the aeroplane window waiting for me....Happy days
thank you Marion, lover of words and verse....I'm glad you enjoyed the setting sun over the Pacific Oceanhappy days
Hi Frikoyou are too generous.That is interesting that the template wasn't suitable for you. I guess we each have a special style and we find a template that reflects that style.I do love the whole page look of some other bloggers but I wonder if the pics take longer to load up...and also I think you might need to have a professional template maker install it.with this template you can alter the widths of the columns and have the side bar narrower or wider. I find now that images on my side bar load up bigger than I want while all the old imported ones have remained their original size.One day I'll have another play but for now I am happy.happy days
Hi Martinthe clouds do look rather lumpy and a little ominous as Barb suggests, having that dark eerie mood...Its good to be back in the company of all these lovely friendly blog friends.happy days
Thank you Paul,I liked the way you phrased your comment.I had been mulling over the concept of home and when I came to write the commentary it wrote itself. I began thinking it was a haiku but the words had a mind of their own and would not bend to those constraints.happy days
