Cloudy Skies 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!

2013_0404imagefacebook0169I admit to be a sky-watcher. I love to see the sky in all its moods: cloudy, stormy, sunrise, sunset.

I found this interesting and , I think, beautiful shot today in my collection. It’s taken in suburban Sydney, Australia.

Enjoy!

Nothing But Cloudy Skies…

Nothing but cloudy skies…

Well, almost.

Here in Sydney, we’ve had record rainfall for the month of August. Sure, the sun has broken through, even delivering days of unremitting sunshine. But, overall, it’s been a grey, soggy month.

Not to complain, though. Misty days can be exceptionally beautiful.

Here’s a scene down by the river.

Enjoy!

Clouds fascinate me.

I like to watch the changing sky.

Seemingly limitless is their variety of patterns and textures.

Here is a photograph of a scene by the river.

Do you like to stop and reflect on the beauty of clouds?

I often find myself looking skywards, especially when I’m on the shore of the river.

Clouds fascinate me. There are so many beautiful textures, colours and forms.

I’m always looking for silver linings…

The Silver Lining….

Cumulo Nimbus over the coast.

Cumulo Nimbus over the coast.

There’s a song that tells us to look for it, but sometimes it can be elusive.

Nonetheless, my husband (and editor) Ronald Sharp captured a true example of it, just recently.

Beautiful though it is, in reality it was the forerunner of a major, adverse weather event: a tornado at sea.

The moral?

Who knows?

Maybe: One needs to be wary, even of those glorious  silver linings…….
