It was a hot day of storms that never happened, of rain that didn’t occur and of an overall greyness. At sunset time, I noticed the cloud cover was thinning, so I went out, curious as to whether there would be anything worth photographing.
Well! The clouds were stunning. So – Sunset brought to you by Clouds.
One of the delights about sunsetty photo taking is my neighbourhood has become so intrigued by my presence on those evenings I’m not working that they come out to 1. find out what I’m doing & 2. chat. One old Italian lady chats away and last night, as I took photos of her gorgeous roses (only this one turned out), gave me 2 beautiful ones which now sit on my desk.
a flight of sacred ibis I was luck to catch. (I missed the sparrowhawks – 3 of them – because I was too busy watching them!)
When sunsetty colour finally happened, it looked like brush strokes

And it was supposed to storm & rain over Perth last night & we hardly got any rain & there were no storms. We have the same forecast today, but the sky is clear.
Sigh. At least it hasn’t been as hot as over Christmas/New Year – in Perth, at least. In the centre & the east, from the tip of the Cape down to Tasmania, breaking temperature records & up in flames? Welcome to global warming!
Hope you enjoyed these clouds 🙂
