Skywatch Friday - Cotton clouds

On a recent road trip from Port Elizabeth to Johannesburg, we had about two hours added to the travelling time as a result of road repairs and the frequent "stop and go's". Well there was no point in getting irritated with all the waiting, when there were so many photo opportunities around, like these clouds forming over the Free State.

Lovely landscape. At least you weren't sitting at roadworks in the soaring heat of summer.

Obviously, this is a land of BIG sky!

THE SKY’S A MOST WONDERFUL THING

The sky’s a most wonderful thing,
Within it some strange creatures sing:
The angels and such;
But dragons? Not much—
They’d rather breathe fire and take wing.
