10 Amazing Clouds & Reasons To Notice Them

, , Leave a comment

A fluffy white cloud over a grassy green hill is not an overrated beauty, but it unduly distracts everyone from other clouds that are similarly awesome, despite their unusual or unpleasant situations.

Here’s to aesthetic equal rights for all clouds: ten clouds, ten contexts, and ten reasons to notice them.

Cloud 1: Near Pollution
(It almost camouflages the factory.)

Cloud 2: Around Fireworks
(This firework, if unclouded, would be nothing. Just nothing.)

Cloud 3: In Iceland
(Iceland doesn’t receive as many visitors as, for example, Paris—but it should because of its obviously-superior quality of clouds.)

Cloud 4: Fake Clouds
(We really don’t appreciate them enough.)

Cloud 5: Over Dirt Roads
(It’s perhaps a bit famous, but only for those who know where to find good dirt roads.)
(Everyone immediately tries to locate the dirt roads in their area.)

Cloud 6: In Puddles
(They eliminate neck cramps by allowing you to watch the ground instead of the sky.)

Cloud 7: Directly in Front of the Sun
(If the sun were less bright…)

Cloud 8: Below Airplanes
(Every window seat knows this. Therefore, a children’s book should feature it; a ‘mobile society’ ought to have children’s books with airplane-window clouds.)

Cloud 9: In Paris
(Parisian clouds are also nice; you needn’t discriminate them after Iceland.)

Cloud 10: During a Storm
(Not many people want to go cloud-watching during a storm. Maybe it’s the flood and tornado warnings?)
[It’s worthwhile, though.]

They’re all worthwhile, actually: aesthetic equal rights for all.
