Weird working times

The week past has been challenging work wise. I have been working on posts, but for today, just some pretty cloud photos.

But wait, I can improve this post. As a child on the farm on a sunny winter day I would lie on the wind sheltered side of the privet hedge that bordered our farm from the road. I would read. I have have always been a voracious reader. After a bit, I would become drowsy in the warming winter sun and put the book down, and just stare up at the fluffy white clouds in the sky. I loved how they changed their shapes and floated across the sky. I still do and love seeing clouds when flying in a plane.

    1. Hels, an unwilling farm boy. It was character building, but not necessarily in a good way.

  5. I agree, watching clouds chase each other across the sky is very relaxing.

  7. They are very interesting clouds. I used do the same and try to find pictures in the clouds a bit like the ink blot test.

    1. Diane, I've never really looked at clouds like that, but I will.

  8. Most Cockies ie farmers in Australia would prefer the more darker clouds and as the song goes 'The breezes and the sunshine and soft refreshing rain.

    1. Cro, I always like to see couple of fluffy whites, to used the meteorological term, in the sky.

    1. River, and if you dozed off in the tree, you may well drop off too.

  11. I especially liked the cloud formation in the last shot Andrew. You are so right though, cloud watching can be mesmerising, which isn't always a good thing, especially when driving πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

    1. The last formation was a bit unusual Grace. Yes, eyes firmly on the road.

    They are indeed mystifying and we wonder what is above.

    1. Thanks Margaret. Those of us who are experienced flyers know what is above, either more clouds or blue sky.

  16. There was the most spectacular cloud, sun and rain display on my flight home from Melbourne last Saturday evening. As we flew in full sunshine on the northern approach to Sydney Airport over Sydney Olympic Park, a dramatic cloud formation to the west - over Parramatta - clearly was dropping a heavy shower of rain on that suburb whilst the sun's rays emanated from the cloud in a Hollywood like display. I viewed this fascinated without the wit to whip out my phone camera to take a picture or two. A lost opportunity.

    1. Victor, that would be after leaving Melbourne's grey skies behind. I like that you enjoyed the moment and did not whip out your camera.

    2. In fact Andrew, on that day Melbourne's weather was far nicer than Sydney's. Sunny and 27ΒΊ.
