Scientifically, a cloud is an aerosol comprising a visible mass of minute liquid droplets, but in our imagination, clouds are so much more than that.

Artists have forever tried to capture the shape of the clouds and used them in paintings to highlight the mood of a scene.

In religion and mythology, clouds were seen as the divide between heaven and earth and the domain of the gods, who were ready to strike, or reward us from their lofty heights.

In the last two centuries, clouds have also become to be associated with war and pollution, but when we are looking up at the sky today we should marvel at the beauty of the clouds.
