bringing relief, soon to be replaced by charcoal clouds scudding across the sky and spits of rain splattering onto the skylight.

As winter draws near we in the northern hemisphere greedily consume every light ray that comes our way. Although some of us may prefer to hibernate until spring.

  1. Interesting and imposing skies indeed, Jude.
    For a change, we have been spared most of the wet weather lashing the west of the country. Sunny mornings, cold winds, and colder nights. The log burner was lit for the first time this season last night, and there is talk of freezing temperatures after Monday.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. We haven’t had the extreme wet weather that seemed to affect the Exeter area. Often the wind and rain hit us first and then pass by. It’s really just been a bit too grey for me. We haven’t lit the woodburner yet – maybe now’s the time!

  2. Lovely pictures, and I think I like the last one best – for me, the visibly not-quite-untouched landscape – the fence – adds another layer of meaning. (I hope I got the words right. Describing pictures can be difficult.)

  3. Great skies, Jude…. I’ve woken to grey again today, but apparently the sun will play hide and seek with the clouds late morning until early afternoon!
