Storm time cometh

Once again, as I was about to head off to take some pictures, afternoon storms made me turn back. The result was a rather restrained set of images taken from whereever I was driest at the time!

An audioBlog accompanies these photographs [2.2 Mbytes, 6 min 3 sec duration]. The audio commentary is also distributed as a podcast. You need to subscribe to my RSS2 feed towards the bottom of the right hand column on this page and you need to use aggregator software capable of utilising this.

Callistemon (bottlebrush in flower)
This member of the myrtle family (Callistemon) has the most fluorescent saturated pinky-mauve flowers. They look like I’ve done some trickery with Photoshop (which I haven’t)!

Storm clouds and chimney
These afternoon storm clouds could, conceivably, be smoke rising from the chimney at the bottom of the image.

Storm on the window
… and then the storm let loose.

Fenceposts at an angle
Driving home, my eye caught the angle of these fence posts. What was pulling them over?

Overcast except for a line of sunshine
The low clouds were curving over the top of the far side of the escarpment in the background. The middleground is streaked with a line of sunlight, left to right, sneaking past the clouds above.

    I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely *love* your blog. Reading it has put me on a photography kick. I’ve been neglecting my digital camera for a couple months, what with work and class and whatnot. So… thanks.
