Rain on the plain…

Yesterday it was windy with heavy shower bands going through and I felt the urge to go to my ‘soothing ground’, about an hour north of where we live.  Pyalong again…it is much, much drier, but I had seen on the radar that there big, fast moving rain storms going through.  I captured this with the wind howling, in absolute spring sunshine watching the rain approach…now soothed 🙂 🙂

Misty Mountain…

I took these on my way home from work yesterday afternoon with a long lens (all I had!).  Considering we are about to enter summer, this week has been cold and wet – we are still bringing in wood for the stove.  These are clearing rain clouds on the top of the nearby hills…

The hay bales have been there since last summer

I’ve been looking at a lot of autumnal images from the northern hemisphere – these coloured tinges are new spring growth on Eucalyptus trees from the south!

Moody morning….

As I have mentioned in a previous post, this vista is one I see everyday at work.  The constantly changing light fascinates me.  I watched it just after sunrise today and caught this light just before the ridge completely vanished behind clouds of heavy drizzle.  I liked the light through the distant tree line and the brooding clouds.
