Given the fact that I seem to have spent the past week or so either my my head in the clouds or up my arse, I think it's appropriate that I return to clouds today for Skywatch Friday.
Driving home from work tonight the sky was a visual feast. The clouds were just so varied and spectacular I didn't know which way to look. The road ahead might've been the sensible option as was pointed out to me by my passenger.
Suitably chastened, I pulled over when I could and got out to take some pics. Danielle (my passenger) has got quite used to this now and I noticed has begun to snap away with her moby and I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm seeing the development of a budding cloudwatcher here. Watch this space.
On a completely different tack, I'm currently listening to Radcliffe and Maconie on Radio 2. I like Mark Radcliffe, think he's just the best thing on radio. He played David Bowie's 'Wild is the Wind' tonight which I think is one of Bowie's finest moments. Didn't realise till tonight that Bowie never wrote it. It was written by Dmitri Tiomkin and was in a 1957 film sung by Johnny Mathis. Yes, Johnny Mathis. How disturbing is that?
