Come watch with me the shaft of fire
That glows in yonder west;
The fair, frail palaces,
The fading alps and archipelagoes,
And great cloud-continents of sunset seas.

I first began to take a keen interest in the skies after becoming a glider pilot some 50 years ago, and learning all about the different types of clouds – so important to staying aloft! Today, I still look at the sky constantly and I remember, every time, what it is like to soar among the clouds. I never never cease to marvel at nature's vast aerial panoramas, constantly changing, frequently fabulous.  I took this photo in our back garden in Little Chalfont in June 2022.
