Cloud on the hills, Wanaka

The air made visible

Clouds can be magnificent and strange, but when they're close enough to cast clear shadows, they become something altogether else.

Kia ora Pete,
Random is an easy word. But with all that clear sky around that one cloud it seems apt. Those shadows upon the land I just cannot describe.

Leonie, you can say it as often as you like ;^D Thanks!

Robb, I think it says a lot about mountain weather and how, particularly in Aotearoa, it's important to be prepared for any kind of it.
