SkyWatch - Sunshine and Shadow


Rain bearing clouds looming over my paddocks
Sunlight illuminates the autumnal gold of silver poplars


clouds move and cast shadows
heavy cold rains are limiting to gardening
but oh so wonderful for the trees that have struggled 
over a number of years.


Thank you  friends at SkyWatch for keeping this splendid meme going

  1. Wow, meine liebe freundin, das sind wunderschöne Fotografien. Ich mag Wolkenbilder, auch wenn sie manchmal sehr bedrohlich sich aufwallen...

  2. Thats a wonderful range of light!

    I did not expect to see either whales or albatross - I'm off for another looking in two weeks!

  5. Very beautiful, please send some of that rain our way! (That pyrocumulus cloud is not steam as there's not much water in the area, that was almost all smoke!)

  10. I am never sorry to see the rain. Sometimes inconvenient perhaps, but life giving. And sorely missed for so many years.
    I love your clouds and the light you have captured here. Thank you.
