A bright sunny bank holiday afternoon, with lots of fair weather cumulus humilis in all directions.
Once upon a time I'd have taken off across the fields. Alas, no longer possible. The spirit is willing but the body's decrepit.
There was a pleasant warm breeze. The saplings by Manor Farm were being blown about under some cumulus fractus.

Later, I glanced out of the window and noticed this stratocumulus cumulogenitus, spreading out as the sun set.

Peach tinted stratocumulus at dusk.

Around tea-time, a few cumulus congentus clouds flattened out as the air currents changed, forming stratocumulus cumulogenitus.

This is a panorama formed by joining two photographs, so best seen large - just click on the picture.

Late afternoon on a breezy day with showers - a break in the stratocumulus at a distance allowed a patch of bright cumulus to be seen. I thought it looked quite dramatic.

This was taken with my phone in Ipswich, in a friend's garden. We were sitting in her conservatory when she commented on how fast these cumulus clouds were billowing up. Wish I'd had my camera with me.

The combine driver worked late last night to get this field cut before the rain came in the early morning.

A few fragments of cumulus humilis in the foreground, and on the horizon, cumulus congestus, coloured by the setting sun.

Butterfly and bobbles

It wasn't until I looked closely at this shot of some stratocumulus cloudlets that I notice a high-flying butterfly.

Late in the day, light and shade under a dark sky.

Rather oppressive stratocumulus.

At a high altitude, wavy sheets of cirrostratus. Lower down, cumulus humilis.

Bright white cumulus

Some lovely cumulus clouds appeared between showers.

Rainy night clouds

Taken through the car windscreen on the way home at the end of a wet day.

Hazy morning

Not much blue sky to be seen this morning, though the sun was shining, because of a layer of cirrostratus. It cleared later.

Wet grey afternoon

A little sunshine, followed by rain. Good for the garden but the clouds weren't very photogenic.

Breezy day

Lots of cumulus today, and a pleasant breeze. It started to rain as I got home.
