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.

Footloose in The Palouse: Land and Sky

Hello, my friends! In my previous post on our trip to The Palouse, I shared the views from the top of a 4,000 foot butte. Today, the views are from the land, deep among the rolling fields, looking up at awe-inspiring skies. Seemingly endless dirt roads lead in tantalizing directions, mysterious and compelling. We followed them for hours – getting lost as we chose.

The farms, hidden in folds of the hills, are for the most part immaculately kept, with the occasional picturesque ruin as a counterpoint.

This crumbling old farm house retained its decorative Victorian trim; lady bugs cover the many vast patches of Queen Anne’s Lace.

Dirt roads disappear into the distance and wildflowers line the edges of the wheat fields.

The skies present a constantly changing show of spectacular cloudscapes.

And finally, on our last morning, we headed down a quiet country road on our way home. Suddenly, D spotted in the distance a herd of horses, galloping across a field. We screeched to a halt amid a cloud of dust, grabbed our cameras, which fortunately were ready on the seat, and ran toward the field. The horses turned, heading for us at full speed, and we were able to shoot just a few frames. I am not a horse photographer but I was so grateful to be there, have my camera with the correct lens and capture images of these magnificent animals. It was an exhilarating moment!

Many pregnant mares and foals were among the herd.

Thank you to everyone who shared their stories of this area in the comments. The Palouse graced us with many stunning and surprising subjects and this final treat was without a doubt the indelible highlight of a memorable and dreamlike journey.

Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!

much love,

G
