135|365 In The Clouds (5/19/11)

May192011_0012a

When I looked at the sky tonight with all the threatening weather, the clouds looked different and I took a photo of them.  Keith came outside and laid in his hammock and said the clouds looked like the front of a stone fortress.

Curiosity about shapes in clouds got the best of me and I did some Internet searching and just discovered that nephelococcygia is a term that is used to describe seeing familiar objects in clouds.  Click Nephelococcygia to hear how its pronounced then on everything2 there’s more information on it’s etymology.
