Bright and beautiful

If you ever bother to look at this blog you'll have noticed that it's been neglected for months. This is mainly because I've hardly been outside for months. I intend to get out more. On the few occasions that I have been out recently, I've missed a couple of photo-opportunities. Sitting in my garden the other day, in conversation with a neighbour over tea, I spotted some cirrocumulus lacunosus overhead. I could have excused myself and rushed in to get my camera, but as my guest was in the middle of telling me something quite personal, it seemed rude to interrupt her, so I didn't. By the time she'd finished her story, the cloud had dispersed. Then, while being driven home by taxi along a busy main road the other day, I spotted some wonderful cumulus heaps. I tried to capture them with my phone but it was impossible, traveling at speed and with road signs and other features in the way, so you'll just have to take my word for it that they were magnificent!

Yesterday I went to the far side of the village to capture some of the abundant cumulus clouds that filled the sky. I tried using my small Fujifilm pocket camera's panorama feature but it was almost impossible to see the instructions onscreen in bright sunlight, especially as my sight's not so hot these days, so the result was due to luck, not judgement. The other shots were more straightforward, with no joins.

Foggy Sunday

Bright and sunny until about 3.30pm, then watched the fog roll across the fields towards me.

Streaks of stratocumulus breaking into cloudlets and dispersing as cold air begins to fall towards the end of the afternoon. Elsewhere, thunderstorms are forecast but none here - no rain due for a couple of days.

Sunny interval

Taken soon after noon, when there were lots of cumulus clouds coming and going. Soon afterwards, they hid the sun.

Pom-pom clouds

Altocumulus stratiformis, late morning. They didn't last long.

The end of a fine day

Fine day, mild temperature. Looks like an early spring again.

Cold afternoon

The end of a chilly day. It was sunny earlier but by 4-ish it struggled to shine through streaks of stratocumulus, with wisps of cumulus fractus in the foreground.
