I took this picture in the Lake District years ago, and the reason I took it was because I liked the way the shape of the clouds echoed the shape of the land-based elements. It gave me a lift, because that sort of thing does.

After this morning’s heavy rain stopped, the sky remained grey all day. But at least it was a light, non-gloomy sort of grey. In the evening it changed. Dark areas started to accumulate until it assumed the appearance of grubby marble. And then I saw that the cloud immediately above the horizon had turned a dirty shade of salmon. It looked melancholy, and that made me melancholy, because that sort of thing does.
