I observed this particular collection of clouds on my way to Kyneton, Victoria. The skyscape that day was beautiful, while the shapes and collective movement of these wind-tossed clouds was uplifting, as I usually find all clouds. For me they are expressive of joy, not only visually with their endless variety of shapes and scenes, a source of constant renewal and creation, but also as symbols of eternal life, of a sense of hope in this life and an afterlife.

The clouds reference the Messiah who in Christian faith will return “on the clouds with power and glory” (Matthew 24:29-31)
