Cirrus morning

It was bright and sunny to begin with, with cirrus clouds that typified their name, chosen by Luke Howard (see right) as they reminded him of hair. Cirrus is from the Latin for "tendril" or "curl". It soon clouded over.

Stormy weather

Thunder clouds overhead. Lots of movement in the sky and wind in the trees. Glad of the rain.

Wrong weather forecast

There was supposed to be a deluge of heavy rain with thunder and lightening today, but we thought we'd risk it and go out. Glad we did.

Blue sky to the east

Bit unsettled today. Some blue sky to the east in the afternoon. Rain clouds in the west, but I couldn't get a clear shot of them through the trees.

Blue sunset

Cool sunset, no reds and yellows.

Looking west

Late in the day, looking west, the sky was a jumble of cumuli, moving fast, while in the east the sky was mostly clear.

Fair weather clouds

A fine day, the sky full of cumulus mediocris, otherwise known as "Simpsons' clouds", like the ones featured the cartoon's opening sequence.
