Day 353 – More Rain…!

Already, this month is heading for being one of the wettest Decembers on record in the UK, and today was another grim day. It pretty much rained all day, and although there has been no flooding around here, there was plenty of surface water to make driving difficult. A slow motion app on my phone allowed me to catch the ripples from the rain.

Day 346 – Sky Fire…

Not the first time I have taken a sunset photo from this point, but with sky colours like this I couldn’t resist it. Even more remarkable because it was actually raining at the time. In fact, it’s rained pretty much all day, and very heavy at that – lots of waterlogged fields…

Day 232 – The Best Laid Plans…

With good weather forecast for this evening, I was looking forward to an hour or so of sunset photography in Chester while my wife was visiting friends nearby. Sadly it wasn’t to be – the rain started as I got to Chester and didn’t let up until I left. It was too wet to hang around outside, so I just managed a few shots from under cover.

Day 224 – Pot Of Gold…

The rather unsettled weather just lately has seen storms, heavy rain, strong winds and sunshine all in the same day, and today has been no exception. Late this afternoon a sharp shower followed by bright sunshine created this beautiful rainbow over the fields around us.

Day 216 – A British Summer…

After our hot and sunny week in Ibiza, we were not unhappy at the prospect of some cooler weather back home. What we didn’t plan on was thunderstorms and torrential rain this afternoon! Fortunately it didn’t last long, and we can expect some kinder weather next week.
