SkyWatch ~ 49 Clouds, just Clouds...

A couple of days ago we walked to the park to check
on the water level in the dam, when I saw these clouds.

They kept changing so rapidly that I had to snap
as we went along.

the sky really was such a deep blue. On our way
back across the paddock, some late afternoon
colour crept up from behind the hill
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
but back in the garden it was quite different, with
the sky assuming a sunny summer quality and
making a perfect foil for one of my early spring roses.

  2. You live in an amazing place!!
    I love all your photos...after looking at all the postings on this page I was struck by the fact that someone dumped his garden refuse into a crevice and from that a garden grew!
    I can't keep geraniums alive, now what am I doing wrong? Maybe too much love and attention?

    Have a great day!!

  50. Hallo Arija,
    welch perfekte Wolken.

    Noch bin ich in Norwegen und habe viele neue Dinge gesehen, einen Drechsler, eine Keramikerin und wie immer das Hadeland Glasswerk besucht. Erfreue mich noch an dem norwegischen Himmel und reise dann Anfang der Woche zurueck nach Deutschland.
    Liebe Gruesse

  51. What a great walk. The colors in the clouds created by the light are wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  52. These photos are gorgeous. I could image you walking in small paces turning which way to capture the clouds.
    P.S. I have read about your fire loss, it is heart wrenching.

    ReplyDelete
  53. No Arija it is not Sheldon, I am sorry I scared you.

    It is just that he is in pain and was throwing up all last night, or I should say gagging.

    Love Renee xoxo

  57. I love it when it's calm down on the ground and yet the clouds are changing fast because of winds higher up.
