Between Heaven and Earth

Between Heaven and Earth - Image c Lynda Lehmann

Between heaven and Earth the clouds form, to bring the rains that fill the rivers and foster life all over the planet. Not only that, but they make the sunny days that will inevitably follow, seem equally welcome and miraculous!

If you look closely at the left-hand side of the image, you can see some rain falling. And thankfully, the river on the right is still viable. Taken at 500 mph from the airplane on our recent trip to Arizona.

  2. Hello Lynda!

    Beautiful photo! *Sigh* if heaven were like that the Angels would want to spend their eternity sleeping: it seems so cosy!! :)

    You are right: the effects of rain in life are amazing; and that is why I welcome rain with a smile on my face!

    Congrats for another great picture :D!

    Cheers

  4. Lynda I take pictures of clouds all the time from the plane, but I have not see that type yet, this is amazing shot! Thanks for sharing, Anna :)

  5. Janice, it does look cozy! I even imagine sometimes, when I'm sitting in a plane, that the clouds are soft, warm islands that will catch and cushion the plane in a mishap, providing a soft landing and safe perching place in the sky!

  6. Max, I too, welcome the rain. Except in those cases where it rains solidly for two months, as it did in Maine this summer, so that it took on Biblical proportions. At those times I could tear my hair out--and it's safe to say I'm NOT feeling all that grateful!

  7. Hello Julie! I'm trying! Not easy to do when I'm aiming to be consistent with blogging, producing art, and participating in communities! I guess everything in life calls for compromise! ;)

  8. Anna, it's great to see you!

    I have seen fabulous clouds on our flights, but don't have the opportunity to capture them very often. Usually the window is smudged or wearing a film of ice crystals, or I'm stuck in the aisle seat next to two "sleepers."

    I hope all is well with you and yours!

  9. Lynda,

    "I too, welcome the rain. Except in those cases where it rains solidly for two months, as it did in Maine this summer, so that it took on Biblical proportions."

    Raining for two months in a row during summer? I have never experienced that.
    I only experienced solid rain when I lived in London, but then it was winter (since in the summer I came to Portugal).

    "At those times I could tear my hair out--and it's safe to say I'm NOT feeling all that grateful!"

    I can imagine: it must be frustrating! LOL LOL I hear you!

  11. Hi Max! It's so good to see you. It isn't raining here today. Rather, it's chilly and sunny with a "cool sun."

    I wasn't exaggerating about the rain in Maine! Our canoe floated up and over the dock, where it remained on the water's surface, a good foot ABOVE the planks!

  13. Hi Lynda,

    "It's so good to see you. It isn't raining here today. Rather, it's chilly and sunny with a "cool sun.""

    Same here :D! Oh but it is here, in Portugal. I am not a winter person, but there is something magical about being chilly and sunny...

    "I wasn't exaggerating about the rain in Maine! Our canoe floated up and over the dock, where it remained on the water's surface, a good foot ABOVE the planks!"

    :O...that bad? Then it was Biblical...

  14. Well, Max, at least the land/animal habitat wasn't flooded, and the rains DID finally come to an end. And we didn't have locusts. So I'm not sure it REALLY qualifies as an event of "Biblical proportions."

    But did I tell you I have crickets jumping out of my clothes dryer for over a year? Now THAT may be a sign...lol...

    LOL I hear you! Well, it was a hyperbole anyway...still, 2 summer months of rain in a row, is too much...

    "But did I tell you I have crickets jumping out of my clothes dryer for over a year? Now THAT may be a sign...lol..."

    No, you didn't tell me! That is quite something...I must see what it means! I agree, it must be a sign of some sort lol...;D

    Have a great weekend!!

    Cheers

  18. "How I love to watch the clouds
    Peacefully, peacefully drifting by
    Silently upon the breeze
    They ease across the clear blue sky.

    How they build and roll and tumble
    Just like angels out to play
    Dancing with the sylphs and fairies...."
    It's my pleasure to read your blog
