Cloud Gazing

Clouds over Anvers by Georgianna Lane

Hello, friends! In celebration of lazy summer days of lying in tall grass and drifting daydreams, I’ve brought you images of amazing skies that I captured between April and June. As you may know, this year I spent many months traveling throughout Europe. One ongoing project was a series of hundreds of cloud studies documenting the incredible formations over the flat landscapes of the Flemish regions of Belgium and Holland. I’d been studying the remarkable paintings of the Dutch and Belgian masters and became so inspired to experience the region first hand. Each of these photographs are presented with the colors, light and shadows as originally seen for truly, these wondrous scenes require no enhancement.

I hope they set you dreaming!

Much more to come including the gardens of Versailles, exquisite architecture of Prague and the fantasy-perfect windmills of The Netherlands.

  • I know what you are talking, seeing all those wonderful old paintings in Amsterdam art museums I really envy old masters who can produce skies like these with oil paint, it is amazing. I love watching the sky, somehow I just forget all around me and transform to place of infinity.
    Once I was outside at work place for a smoke and just looked at sky when some colleague come outside too and ask what is there in the sky he didn’t see anything special and I just answered there is the sky, can’t you see how beautiful it is! He just looked at me like I was insane :) Well he’s lost not mine.

  • That sounds like an incredibly interesting project, Georgianna! Lying in the grass and studying the clouds, that is indeed one of my joys of summer.

  • Wow! You captured the cloud formations wonderfully Georgianna. You were here at the exact right time to experience some great cloud formations.
    Sky’s been very grey for a while again now :( Really not my kind of weather. I love a blue sky. Some clouds here and there are ok but not this sky filled with all grey.
    Sounds like you’re getting all your pictures from your extended trip to Europe sorted. Looking forward to more. I guess the mills will show us Kinderdijk? Really looking forward to these!
