Even though Google I/O kicked off today and there was a crazy rush of news and excitement, we managed to pick out some wonderful photos for Weekly Photo Contest: Clouds. We had 12 full pages of entries in the forums, indicating that this was a pretty successful contest. Three winners take home a Chromecast for their entries this week — read along and see the winning submissions.
Winner of a Chromecast, paralog!
The position of this shot filling 90 percent of the frame with the sky shows off the wonderful colors and shadows created by the complex clouds. The sun peaking up over the horizon gives it just that little edge. Taken with a Nexus 4 — great shot.
Winner of a Chromecast, jfosterjr!
We were bound to get a few shots from up in airplanes, and this was the best of the lot. A blanket of clouds underneath the plane and even more in the distance. This wonderful picture was taken with a Nexus 5.
Winner of a Chromecast, JediJesus95!
This picture distinctly only fills have the frame with clouds, but with the reflection off of the still water it feels like there's far more to see here. The perfect reflection shows off the great colors and cloud formations. Taken with a Note 2 — well done.
