The clouds were threatening rain all afternoon, and they weren’t really looking all that photogenic.
However, as we were walking back home, we noticed this usual looking cloud on the hill in the distance; the white clouds stood out against the grey murky clouds behind.
I spent an hour or so on the allotment today, but unfortunately I didn’t take my camera with me! I did spot some ladybirds and a large spider that was making its home in my strawberry patch…. but today’s random act of wildness photo was taken this evening, when the cloud had rolled back in. There was a slight glow below the darker cloud which I’m guessing was the sunset reflecting off the clouds – it couldn’t have been the true sunset, as the glow was to the east!
I’m still amazed that no matter how many photos I take of clouds, it’s like snowflakes – no two look alike!
While the lower clouds looked quite dark, it was actually more of an illusion than stormy conditions, as the sun was starting to set, which cast a shadow over those clouds.
Yesterday’s storm was quite intense – no thunder or lightning, but plenty of threatening clouds, and definitely plenty of rain!
All these stormy clouds are proving very photogenic, especially when they’re followed by a spectacular double rainbow!
I always find it strange to see the moon in the sky before it’s dark, especially when it coincides with a reflected sunset! The sky was a really deep pinky red, and the moon seemed a complete contrast, glowing so brightly.
My camera sometimes struggles to capture the intensity of the red sunset glow, but these clouds came out perfectly. It’s actually looking to the north, but the sunset glow wasn’t actually visible to the west at all!
Another photo from last month, we had a run of several days with some very photogenic clouds, and this was a particularly unusual looking one. The rest of the sky was clear, but these clouds just drew a wispy line parallel to the horizon.
