Rainy day

A rainy day in shades of grey.

Tuesday, 21 September 2010

A warm sunny day with fair weather cumulus humilis overhead. There were seagulls soaring in the thermals above my head - didn't have my zoom lens to get a better shot. The cloud in the middle photo looked a bit like a flying pig to me.

A changeable sort of day that ended with a pastel-tinted sunset.

Circumzenithal arc over St James's Park

A circumzenithal arc spotted over St. James's Park, London, at about tea-time - we were drinking tea when we spotted it.
If you look closely, you can see a second arc lower down. They're formed by light reflected from ice crystals in a cirrus cloud between 8 and 10 miles high.

Here's one I saw over Suffolk four years ago.

Just after noon, cumulus clouds started to build up into cumulus congestus cells, ready for more rain later.
