This morning I got up around 7am as I was going to the Op Shop today. I opened the back door to let Cindy out and this is what I saw.
I spotted this rainbow this morning when I went outside to wait for my ride to the Op Shop. If you look closely you can just see a second one.
I looked out my window this afternoon and I thought it must be raining but the ground didn’t seem to be getting wet. I went outside and the sky was full of black clouds. I think that for just a few minutes it was trying to snow. It was cold enough outside but it didn’t settle and in less than five minutes it was over. As long as I was out there I thought I would take some pictures of the clouds. Despite the threatening appearance, it didn’t rain this afternoon.
This is my first attempt at making a GIF. I saw this unusual cloud one evening and it reminded me a little of a UFO.
Here are my pictures featuring items from Cee’s photo. I’ve chosen to go mainly with the blue, orange and sea themes.
Blue, sky, clouds
octopus, orange, blue
orange, water, clouds

One evening I looked out the back door and noticed this unusual cloud formation. Naturally the camera was not handy so I ran for the phone.
As is usual these days most of my photography is done close to home. The first one is one of a series I took recently during a forest regeneration burn. Although I don’t like the smoke you do get spectacular sunset and cloud formations in these conditions. The next one was taken during the spring one day when I spied a helicopter flying low over my place. I was lucky that it was a bright day and it stood out well against the blue sky. Most of the choppers we see down here are either something to do with forestry or as in this case the electricity authority inspecting the power lines from above. Occasionally the rescue helicopter comes down to transport an urgent case to the hospital in Hobart too.
These last three were taken in my back garden this afternoon. A fine autumn afternoon and no burns going on anywhere nearby. The sun was low in the sky and the moon was rising at around 4:30 pm.
