(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – A stunning photo of a circular cloud over Mount Fuji with a golden ring of sun’s reflection, taken in March of 2016 by Seiji Nagatsuka of Japan. Not exactly a lenticular cloud in form but still an amazing photo. Seiji is the husband of my wife’s friend in Japan. The family lives not too far from the foothills of Mount Fuji.)
When I first saw this photo, the first thing that came out of my mind was “Shekinah Glory“.
“Shekinah Glory” is the English transliteration of a Hebrew word meaning “dwelling” or “settling” and denotes the dwelling or settling of the divine presence of God.
The word “Shekinah” does not appear in the Bible but the concept clearly does.
Sure, to most people clouds are just clouds and nothing more. It’s the work of nature. And that’s true.
But sometimes we can ask the question: “Who is behind this beautiful work of nature?”
Is it just just all coincidence?
The above photo taken by Seiji Nagatsuka does not exactly seem to be that of a lenticular cloud because it does not seem to be thick enough. It appears to be that of a rather flat, thinner, circular cloud that “hung”over Mount Fuji.
But personally I have always been fascinated by typical lenticular clouds.
(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – My first lenticular cloud, not a great one but it’s better than nothing, taken on January 10, 2017 at 3 p.m. in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, USA – – my dream is to catch a perfect lenticular cloud some day)
(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – For some reason or other, I just love lenticular clouds – – this is not an ideal one but again it’s better than nothing, taken on November 6, 2017 from my backyard in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, USA)
By the way, living in beautiful New Mexico, U.S.A., one of my favorite hobbies (besides playing music) is capturing some beautiful clouds here – – please click the following link:
