This month Paula has given us 5 words to spark our photographic imaginations: dawning, condensed, coalescing, verdant and sempiternal. This skyscape view from our house on Wenlock Edge says everlasting (sempiternal) to me, though that could be wishful thinking on my part – to think the world as I know it will always remain the same. I think, with the different cloud formations, this image also covers condensed and coalescing. No hidden verdant though, for this is a winter scene – the big bare ash tree in the corner of the allotment. And it was definitely taken at sunset and not at dawn.

Beautiful and dramatic sky 🙂
Many thanks, Sreejith. We have an excellent local sky painter in our neck of the woods 🙂
That’s a beautiful dusk
Thank you, Mak 🙂
Thanks for looking up sempiternal for me, Tish. Knew I could rely on you. 🙂 🙂 And for a lovely image too. Not quite feeling myself today. We’ve had blue sky from dawn till…. I must have woken somewhere else. 🙂
Hope you’re feeling more yourself tomorrow. I’ve spring cleaning my allotment shed, though cleaning might be a bit of an exaggeration.
Expecting the rain back so I’ll be back to normal 🙂
Am a bit sick of sogginess.
Great sky, Tish, sempiternal or no….
Thank you, Sue 🙂
Good place to just sit and wonder.
Ah, the Sky Painter has been at it again. Such a wonderful photo Tish.
Thanks, Jude. I think the Edge adds interesting effects.
It is a beautiful photograph. Eternal? Who knows what, if anything, is eternal. It will no doubt outlast you and I, and for us, that’s pretty much as eternal as it gets 🙂
Good point on the eternal!
Very unusual cloud formation Tish and the only thing we can be sure of is, there will be change…
What an unusual sky Tish!
I think it’s something to do with the Edge. A couple of fields on from what I see as the horizon, the land drops away to a lowland plain. Also the further of the Edge is dense hanging woodland. I think it makes for interesting cloud effects. I need a cloud expert.
beautiful image. you have a great view.
Thank you, Klara. We do indeed have a wonderful skyview from our house.
Smashing! Great interpretations too 🙂 Thank you, Tish, for supplying this lovely view.
Many thanks, Paula 🙂
