[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
we live on a bottom of an ocean of air. yes, the atmosphere - that thin layer/bubble of air without which we couldn't be here. thin because at a given equatorial Earth radius of 6 378km, the bubble extends with only 320km our world into the space (160km thickness), the most dense part of it (the troposphere) being just 20km thick, of which breathable air (where the oxygen is around 29% of the gases mixture) is no more than 3km from global sea level, very few people living at 5km altitude and practically nobody above it.
in this dens layer of 20km the majority of atmospheric phenomena take place and, once again, we could not live here without them. because that's the way our world tends to reach an equilibrium of temperature and moisture. and all these at a "price" of just 10 ton per square meter.
now, as long as I like clear skies at night time (astronomical reasons) I like to live under clouds (sometimes my head within them, of course, I'm a tall guy) for the monochrome face of a featureless clear sky has nothing to say during daytime. on the other hand, the endless spectacle offered by dancing figures, furious stormy clouds and whispers of the winds will make my day an interesting "place" wherever I am.
I'll start here a series of photos taken at clouds, being sure you'll not like all of them, but hoping these images won't make you lose your time due to my foolish belief that they are a "space" apart, and a very fine one, sometimes hard to transform into simple images, like any other great subjects in our world.
