Blue sky

Hazy blue sky with some cumulus in the distance (to the east). Weather forecasters say it'll get colder.

Cold westerly wind

There was a cold wind from the west as a bunch of cumulonimbus passed overhead mid-afternoon. After 10-15 minutes, they'd moved on and the sky above was clear.

A changeable sky

There were a few spots of rain just before this - hardly enough to bother about. About lunchtime, and the edge of a sheet of altostratus with a roll of cumulus clouds in the distance, looking south east.
Late afternoon, and some cumulus fractus were silhouetted by the setting sun.
The same time as the last photo - a pastel-tinted sky with altostratus (some undulatus to the left). Five minutes earlier there was more pink but by the time I'd grabbed the camera and put my shoes on, it had mostly gone.

Cold cirrus

Last night it was cold and clear - perfect for the BBC's Stargazing Live programme. Today it was bright and sunny, with assorted cirrus clouds in all directions.

Fleeting images

It was windy at ground level, which was good for my washing, and also windy at high altitudes, judging from the speed the clouds were moving at. This was taken at about 4pm, looking west.

As I was processing the first photo (within half an hour) I happened to look out of the window (facing east) and noticed a pink blush. By the time I got outside, it had almost gone.

A Spring day in January

It's bright and sunny and unseasonably warm. I shall do some gardening, but it's January, for heaven's sake!

Mid-morning, and the sky was mostly clear; just a few contrails and some streaks of altocumulus in the east.

Mostly grey

The sun shone briefly mid-afternoon but I was too busy to go out. When I did, it had gone, though I saw some patches of sunlight in the distance. These were taken at the other end of the village. Mild temperature for January.
