Hammad’s Weekend Sky #80

Another clear blue sky in the morning and it did turn out to be a hot day. I had a bit of a sleep in so the sun was a bit higher than in many of my other weekend sky photos from the same spot

Most of the other photos in this direction, you can just see the sunlight on the tips of the trees. Here you can actually see the Eucalypts leaves and branches.

I am a bit late in getting a sunrise photo. It wasn’t anything colourful or wonderful but now the sun is up a bit further through the trees and it’s a blue sky. Here is your song and enjoy your weekend.

Sunshine through the trees

The Sun is really illuminating the Eucalypts this morning

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #77

The title of this post is a bit misleading. Yes the last photos are from this mornings wonderful sky. I have included other days as I had to get the photos and have been waiting for Hammad not to be so busy that he posted the wonderful Weekend Sky photo challenge.

Here is a song to scroll as you work your way through a few photos of melodies in the sky

The start was an amazing sky in the afternoon of the 24 October. I wondered what the sky was doing as the storm was building. I looked to the east and there was a faint rainbow through the trees and the sky was a lovely lilac.

Then the storm approached

On last Thursday morning, the first of November, the sky was so colourful I just had to grab a few photos from the usual spot

After a while the colours had changed

Here we are at this mornings sky. I should have changed the camera setting as the sun was just rising and the colours are great, The photos don’t do the sky justice

Over the house patches of blue were surrounded by dark clouds tinged with colours

The sun hadn’t quite reached the gum trees yet but a faint glow is evident

This was about five minutes after the first photo for this morning. More blue sky struggling through.

I tried to get the sunrise through the trees with another camera but the yellows and oranges are taken by the black of the trees. When you live in a forest I guess that’s the price to pay

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #76

Yes, I am back to grey skies and rain. It has been raining every day for the past week. In a way it has not made me feel all that good. I have things I want to do but am restricted to doing things inside. I have been doing a lot of photo sorting and photo challenges. It would be good to have company and sit around playing Scrabble or other games. At night I have the frogs for company and there are hundreds at the moment, in the dams and gullies all around the house.

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #75

I wish I had thought about this challenge earlier as the sunrise was colourful this morning, an orange sky. Oh well I did get a bonus. From the usual spot I was about to take the photo when a couple of Spangled Drongos flew in to see what I was doing.

The sun is well and truly shining on the trees this morning. There’s not a cloud in the sky.

In case you couldn’t see the Spangled Drongos in the first photo, here they are making their most amazing songs

It is the most amazing call especially when there are two or more. Have a listen.

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #74

Here are two lots of Weekend Sky photos. I took the first lot on the 1st October and the second just a few minutes ago. Both had great clouds but this mornings were so good.

Just a hint of sunrise colour

The sunrise through the trees. I don’t get to see an expanse of sunrise sky.

This morning there was rain earlier and it is starting to clear

This is looking straight up from the small landing where I always take my weekend sky photos

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #72

The rain has returned after a bit of a dry Winter. It didn’t take long for the ground to get soggy again. There was 20mm in the rain gauge and it has been raining since yesterday afternoon. So todays weekend sky photos are back to grey clouds.

An appropriate song for your Weekend Sky

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #71

As I was out this morning I didn’t take my usual Saturday morning Sky. These are this afternoon. I was hoping for some sunset colour but I was a bit early. It is getting rather chilly out there now once the sun goes down behind the mountains and the wind blows cold air.

I wasn’t expecting Hammad not to have a post a couple of Saturdays ago but this sky was one I had to capture on August 8. The clouds were spectacular don’t you think?

Hammad’s Weekend Sky #69

My photos from this morning. When I downloaded the photos and looked at them, I thought I had copied last weeks photos. There is an uncanny resemblance to this mornings photos and last Saturdays photos. Have a look here

It was raining over the past few days and not long after I took these photos, the clouds came over and there was a shower of rain
