I do like the way the morning lights of the Spinnaker and the “Lipstick” have been diffused by the low laying cloud. The weather plays such a significant role in almost every part of our lives that it is pretty much impossible to ignore.
One of the first things I do when I get up on a weekday morning is look out the window to see what is happening to the weather, I confess that sometimes I wished it was raining so that I could go back to bed. Most of the time though, I want an exciting sky. That could be anything from a clear sky in the depths of winter, with lots of stars. It’s especially nice when there is a planetary arrangement.
A walk where the weather is full of character is particularly nice, not a sky full of cloud, but clouds scudding along in a brisk breeze, just as the sky is starting to brighten in the East. As the year moves on, the light changes, the sun will be behind buildings, behind cloud – every day is different. That’s why I don’t get bored with repeating the same walk. Why I am always happy to take pictures of the same skyline, because the light and the weather always makes it different.
I want to talk a bit about rain. I love a good rainstorm. Sitting and watching the water hitting the window, and hammering on the conservatory roof. Sometimes, I am happy to go out for a walk in the rain. Making sure that I have the right coat of course. Sometimes I get caught, most of the time it really isn’t hat unpleasant. Enjoy the weather.
