January has usually been a month where it feels like my head is either in a fog or UP in the clouds. So far this year, with so much going on with our move to Washington, I feel slightly unmotivated and a little out-of-sorts. I have a lot to look forward to and I am very eager to get on with our new life here. Even a cloudy, snowy day is beautiful to me.
I won’t let the BIG events cloud my motivation. Despite the hope of a historical, US presidential inauguration, the potential for unrest and what feels like a never-ending pandemic has caused psychological harm to possibly millions of people. Who doesn’t feel brain fog these days?
For now, I will revel in what the month of January brings, usually cold weather, clouds and fog, and discover an ethereal and reflective beauty in the images.

And just to make it interesting, I’ve included a few of my favorite images of clouds and fog found in other seasons.

A delta sunset sparks the imagination in late April.
Windy conditions at the Sacramento delta yielded an incredible variety of cloud formations, including this lenticular formation.
These ominous storm clouds brought wind to the delta.
I couldn’t resist re-posting this image of the wave-like clouds we saw a few years ago in the Mohave Desert.
These clouds at 4500 elevation in the Sierra Nevada Mountains were feeling lazy.

And just when you think you are too weary to care about much, Blue Angels soar high above us, a gift of hope as humankind demonstrates its capacity to defy speed and gravity .

I would love to see your fog and cloud images this week!
