5 Minutes Ago – 6 January

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #87

This is a mixed bag again. I actually found some Weekend Sky photos from the 22nd January which I didn’t include in my last weekend sky post. These are the first two. The clouds cleared after a while to a hot day and storm in the afternoon.

Looking to the north, the blue skies were coming

Now to this mornings sky from the small deck. I was up late enough for the sun to be peeking above the horizon and trees. A bit of blue sky and wispy clouds

To the north, the clouds were drifting so I expect another hot sunny day is in the offering.

I went into the garden to see if there was anything else happening. This is the sky about three minutes later. I don’t know if it’s going to be a rainy day or a hot sunny one. All I know is that it is warm and humid already.

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #86

Last weekend the sky had a wonderful morning display. I just had to take those photos for Weekend Sky but didn’t post them. The morning sky also held a surprise as well.

21 January skies

It is hard to get the full effect of the sunrise with it’s blazing yellow sun

While to the north, the sun is just reaching the tops of the Eucalypts and our Moon was still shining bright. This photo is from the old little camera which is not being used for morning sky photos any more but still is the small pocket sized camera I will use for my emergency camera if out and about and my main cameras don’t function as I would like.

These are this mornings photos. I was awake about an hour after sunrise this morning. After wild storms over the past few days, the blue morning skies are back, heralding more hot days with afternoon storms.

The northern sky, the sun fully lighting the Eucalypts and a wisp of cloud

Here is the sky on the 26th at around 5pm just before the wild wind and rain arrived

and coloured tinged clouds at sunset

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #85

Another early morning wake up for me. The sunrise was well worth it

I haven’t included this song before. I don’t know why. I learnt to play guitar to lots of Donovan songs

The colours brushed the clouds and reduced as the clouds moved away from the sunrise

In the northern sky, not a cloud in sight just a bright moon and the tree tops starting to greet the dawn

After a few moments the sun burst over the horizon in a blaze of yellow

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #84

Here we go with another lot of weekend skies from my usual photo spot. Still a hint of cloud and rain about. Yesterday was 29C and today will be much the same with high humidity.

I think this is an appropriate song to start 2023’s Weekend Sky.

Light wafting clouds slowly coming over with some heavier clouds on the horizon

The sky and clouds to the north still have a bit of morning sun’s colour

Trying to get down to horizon level as a golden sun was trying to peek through the clouds

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #82

This mornings sky is leaden following a wet few days. These photos are earlier in the morning than in the past few posts

Not as grey looking this way

I stood there waiting for some birds to fly across the view. Three times they did and I wasn’t ready. About ten minutes after the first photo, the sky looked like it was going to colour.

This was as colourful as it got.

Some of my favourite sun photos

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #123: Here Comes the Sun

Whether it is a muted sky in the morning as the sun rises

it is lovely to stroll along the beach

Perhaps the sun has a fiery start so it is nice to chill in the cool water

The suns rays burst forth showering a rainbow of colours

or maybe is is time to enjoy the warmth while drying your feathers after a bath

or sit against a warming brick wall in the morning to wake and get ready to sing in the day

or just laze about, finding a shady spot in the heat of the day

The last light as the sun is about to go down for the day

Maybe ending as it started with light, gentle colours

or a showy colourful finish

and sometimes ending in a blaze of glory
