The River in the Rain….

What a difference a day makes!

After a lengthy spell of dry weather, the heavens opened up today here in Sydney, Australia.

I for one  quite enjoy walking in the rain, and Chicki our Maltese doesn’t shirk from accompanying me.

There’s nothing quite like observing the effects of rain on water and surrounding areas. Misty vistas and intriguing patterns on the water are special highlights.

Enjoy!

The Rain, The Park, and all its Beauty

Noisy Miner in the rain

While most of Sydney stayed indoors, or certainly stayed away from deliberate, outdoor activities, we ventured out to see the special, soft, misty beauty that the gentle rain provides.

And, weren’t we rewarded?  Despite the raindrops, and singing at the top of their voices, a  few Noisy Miners alighted in front of me, making an engaging scene. The river, misted over, permeated a soft, soothing aura.

Sure, we love the brilliant sunshine, but doesn’t precipitation also offer something awesome?

What a Rainy Morning!

8 Mar

Boy, did it rain!

It was nothing, here where I live, compared to the absolutely flooding deluge I’ve just seen on television that occurred in other parts of Sydney. Nevertheless, it was quite impressive.

It hammered on the roof, gushed down the window panes, washed onto the verandah. The front path, covered by several inches of cold clear water, led to an equally flooded nature strip, which squelched underfoot.

Visibility went right down, replaced by an all-engrossing sense of nature overwhelming us.

This is Australia: land of drought, land of flood!
