Cloudy Skies Over The River

Clouds over the river

Clouds over the river

This morning, the reflections on the river wore a sombre hue, for the overhead clouds had done their work.

What a difference the sunshine makes!

Nevertheless, there is a certain charm to the place when all above is in shades of grey.

The sea-birds didn’t seem to mind, for there were far more silver gulls than usual. While I was swimming, I caught sight of a pelican: a rare visitor. Unfortunately it disappeared before I could grab the camera.

Whether the skies are blue or grey, summer is here!

    Oh Dear, it does look like a grey day.One that can certainly turn your mood to introspection. If you hadn’t pointed it out, I’d have a hard time believing this was a day in Summer since it looks like many of our grim days of Winter and no-one here would dream of swimming in the open at that time.

      The water was quite warm, David, probably about twenty-three degrees, and there were half a dozen swimmers today. I was the only female. 🙂 The weather is hot and muggy, even though it’s overcast, so there’s no bravery involved in getting in for a swim.
