Bahadir, I have never seen the like of the cloud formation that you have so adeptly captured in photo #1. Thank you so much for the education!

Actually, calling mythological characters 'a lie' is far from being a literate attitude. If they were merely 'lies', then all the great writers and poets who have established the foundations of the culture we're enjoying today should be called great liars!Ah, the charactersthese authorshave created are more real in executing their rolesin displaying the values of their times and the historical backgroundthan the so called 'real people' ...

On the other hand, I see no point in trying to prove the reality of the mythological characters as 'once' real people, either! Because these mythological characters represent 'types' rather than individuals likethe statues of the Classical period, through which the sculptor merged the best parts of certain individuals

Another aspectto consider is that, one can witness a great deal ofresemblance between themyhological characters. For example in the world's first written epicof Gilgamesh which dates back more than 4000 years ago today about the legendary Summerian king Gilgamesh whois supposed to have lived about 2700 BC. He slays an implacablelion and wearsits skin like Hercules. There are also reliefs displaying him grabbing the lion..

Thanks again for your kind interest and the link! Very nice finding indeed

@ Emre: I'm happy to read your appreciation!

As a matter of fact it was a matter of risking my car towed away due to indecent parking, while shooting the cloudscape:-)

.................................................. .......................................

@ goomer: Thank you for providing your kind feed back!

I think it is the perspective of the ground which made #2 your favourite along with Emre...

@ musket: Thank you for your appreciation!

Ah, we all like clouds, and even sometimes would like to be like them, don't we: )

@ bill43210


Thank you for your appreciation and indicating your favourite!

Although #3 is not a stitchworklike the other two, somehow, I could not resist adding it : )
