The landscape collector

JULY 16

Spring altocumulus skies




If a wonderful sunset with altocumulus would deploy in the skies only once every generation, certainly it would become a major legend of our time. However most people hardly seems to notice the clouds, or these are seen as an impediment to that perfect summer day ... 

Yet, nothing in nature can compete with the variety and drama of the clouds ; nothing is as sublime and ephemeral a beauty ... 



life would be immeasurably poorer without them ...

Spending a few minutes now and then to watch the clouds can become a great source of pleasure ... 



We recommend the book: The Cloudspotter’s Guide, by Gavin Pretor-Pinney (2007)...

Red poppy fields forever







Novia del campo, amapola,
que estás abierta en el trigo; 
amapolita, amapola,
te quieres casar conmigo?   

Bride of the fields, the poppy,
You're open in the wheat;
Pretty poppy, my poppy,
do you want to marry me?

(J.R. Jiménez - 1881-1958 Premio Nobel Prize)


There are love stories that are like poppies, fragile , a slight wind , and still cling to the throat ... 

Among the intertwined fields of green and yellow of June , the red spots poppies are the protagonists , like in the Monet painting ... 
as in the Colonel Mc Rae's poem: "In Flanders fields the poppies blow..." 

Flower field per excellence: "más de campo que las amapolas..."
