Hammads Weekend Sky #102

Again my morning sunrise and sky were just blue skies so I didn’t grab a some photos. Instead here is an old sunrise photo taken at the beach in Port Fairy, a coastal town in Victoria in 2013.

Hammads Weekend Sky #100

I took these photos early this morning. When I looked at my WP site’s Reader, the first post I saw Weekend Sky and then noted it was number one hundred. I didn’t think that this mornings sky was special enough for #100.

I had a look at todays photo downloads and then reconsidered. This mornings sky was a bit special.

Looking east. A glow just beginning. I like the graduated effect.

Here is the direction the sunrise is at the moment, more north-east as winter gets closer

The regular sun in the tree tops photo but the sun isn’t up far enough this morning. But wait, what’s that?

The Moon is still up so I reckon that is special. I don’t think I have ever had a Moon and sunrise photo for Weekend Sky before either

If you are wondering about the title, I started doing photos from the same spot a couple of years ago and that was how it was. For my convenience I call the posts all the same start, just add the days date.
It’s almost eighteen hours since I took the photos 😁

Hammads Weekend Sky #98

The sunrise is trying hard to make a mark among the gloom of heavy cloud this morning

The clouds to the north held a bit of sun but the sun wasn’t high enough to reach the trees

A while later I went out to see if the sun had changed the sky. It was much the same just a bit bluer in patches. Looking straight up over my house was this! I see so many thing in that shape. What about you?

A joy to hear

I had never had Whipbirds at my place until after the fire that caused so much devastation across the whole Clarence Valley in 2019. My place was a little oasis where I fed and watered as many birds and animals who came to see what was on offer. I was hoping the Whipbirds would stay and they have. They even came into the garden after a while as they are shy birds and know how to hide.

Have a listen to a Whipbird singing.

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #92

When I took these photos the sky was clear and not a cloud or anything to be seen. As I write this a fog has descended bathing my home and muting the sunrise.

I thought this was appropriate seeing the fog is in the mountains

The sun just a glow through the trees

Too early for the sun to reach the tree tops on the northern side

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #88

I am being more haphazard in my taking photos from the small deck. This morning I should have taken the early morning yellow sky but didn’t think until I saw Hammad had posted this morning (my time)

The sun is just through the trees with spreading clouds. As I write the cloud cover is almost 80%

As the rising sun colours the Eucalypts against a blue sky. This blue has now disappeared. The clouds moved in very quickly. I hope it may rain as the garden needs a good soak

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
