Playful Photos Of People Playing With Clouds

cloud-photography01


When we get bored of the work and bustle of the day, we stare out of the window and look at the sky to relax for a while. Sometimes, we imagine things in the clouds and their shapes apparently look like something else. Some artistic people take this one step further and play with clouds to catch impressive photographs. Call it forced perspective or real imagination, but the result is amazingly excellent. See them for yourself and please let us know about your thoughts.

Riding The Waves: Acrobatic Couple Perform Incredible Stunts While Surfing Waves

According to Caters News: “It takes a lot of skill to surf a wave normally on a surfboard , but to hold different shapes in the air on the shoulders of a partner is even more challenging. That is what talented pair Lauren Oiye and Chuck Inman were caught doing while taking part in the Tandem Surfing competitions in Waikiki. Unlike the average surfing competition, Lauren and Chuck combine the balance needed to even stand up on a surfboard, with the strength needed to hold up various gymnastic poses.”
