Another offering from the Oliver Photo Club, called Cornucopia of Colour.

Commenter Laird Smith is right: there is beauty in Alberta, too. Below is a shot taken at Grande Cache, Alberta, almost five hundred kilometers west of where Laird lives. Can anyone identify the clouds in the picture?

It’s nice to see these pictures, to see what beauty is like for other people in other places.

    Of course!
    Shredded time and angel wings’ falling feathers. Duh.

    Beautiful photos, all of them. Thank you.

  2. arjaybe says:

    Good observation! Reminds me. though: how do we know that angel wings are feathery and not leathery?


  3. emmylgant says:

    Pigtails says she can’t believe you don’t know… OK. We know they’re feathery because birds have feathers and they fly while cows, pigs and other leathery-skin dudes don’t. You do remember that angels fly? Pigtails says she doesn’t know where they go, why or what they do, so don’t bother asking. 😉

      But . . . but . . . angels are always depicted as mammalian creatures and flying mammals (bats) have leathery wings. If angels were bird-like, wouldn’t they be depicted with beaks?-)

    Obfuscation she says. (She knows some big words like that) She didn’t say they were bird-like, just that they have wings like birds. She says next you will ask if they have babies or eggs… She is thinking… shrugs. Ask Bernini she says. Bernini? Really? Now I am shrugging. 🙂

      I don’t think angels have offspring. I think they’re supposed to be sterile, aren’t they? I guess bird wings are less icky than bat wings, and we don’t want our angels to be icky.


  5. emmylgant says:

    No we don’t want them icky, I agree.
    But how about tickly?
    With feathers they could be.
    I am getting carried away I see.
    sorry. It’s the child in me.

  6. emmylgant says:

    I think so. Just imagine … smiles everywhere!
