A word, a shiver?

Again it is Tom Sutcliffe setting me thinking. Have you ever seen a cloud image but only got that shiver up your spine when an evocative word or phrase was added?

For Sutcliffe it was the title 'Whispering' added to the sight of Anthony Caro's sculpture.

I have to ask you to scroll down to the heading 'A captivating winner in the name game' to read Sutcliffe's small piece:

To see the sculpture 'Whispering' you have to link to

H,
I can't recall ever having seen a cloud image but only getting that shiver up my spine when an evocative word or phrase was added, but I have seen a drawing that reminded me of a cloud image that gave me a shiver when I saw the title...

If you trawl down to the end of the sixth paragraph, clouds do get a mention.

Shiver my clicks

I think I agree with Helen, the shiver is going to be almost as rare as the eureka.

So I would like to lower the threshold. There have been moments on this forum when the added word(s) have clicked with me. Ah, so!

There was MikeL's Two Rivers (wind shear):

AK's first alpenglow picture when someone said 'always look behind you':

Possibly Anita's video of the Helm Bar (though at the moment I cant remember the word(s)):

(The word was fohn).

P.S. Helen, Breath is a really lovely work. And the following para, Speigel im Spiegel - I heard that very recently, by my favourite Arvo Part. (For those who dont know it, it is rather minimalistic with three repetitive notes gently but surprisingly varying).

N.B. I added the links to my previous post...

Ian's picture when eventually 'Great Plains, No' clicked and I realised we had arcus in the UK. Unfortunately the picture has been removed from Photobucket - do you still have it elsewhere, Ian?

One more to edit in since I seem to be incapable of searching for a second item within an active response:

My own picture when Graham said 'virga':
