cloud day #178 30th October 2014

A lighter layer on the top -  with heavier denser layer at the bottom. I guess that's a no-brainer in terms of gravity! Not very nice weather, hardly a glimmer of sun

cloud day #177 29th October 2014

It's been a wet and wild overnight here, continuing on into this morning. Lots of  movement in the clouds with rain, thunder and lightning. Nature at its best?

cloud day #176 28th October 2014

The sky says it all, and these grey cloud-filled days, while providing lots of cloud-fodder, are also a little tedious! Hoping the blue and white skies return soon...

cloud day #175 27th October 2014

How's this for drama? I was surprised this shot looks so dramatic, as the sky didn't appear to be quite so, well, dark. The lens doesn't lie, so they say, so it really is like this, if only for the fleeting second it took me to aim and shoot. It did lighten up afterwards, although not a great day weather-wise.

cloud day #174 26th October 2014

Crikey, this morning, early, the sky was cloudless. Blue. Speaking of sunny. Not any more. Sigh.

cloud day #173 25th October 2014

This early-ish morning shot is a little deceiving, implying as it does a day filled with cloud. In fact, the day turned out to be lovely, but that's Auckland.

cloud day #172 24th October 2014

A promising look for the weekend? Meant to be fine, so fingers crossed! Lovely sky here...

cloud day #171 23rd October 2014

A stack of clouds! and an altogether brighter feel to this shot - green and blue and white and reminiscent of summer, at last!

cloud day #170 22nd October 2014

Sun, swirling clouds, blue, the suggestion of lots of movement - a great image!

cloud day #169 21st October 2014

Thick cloud, again thicker over the hills, a still, greyish day, more autumnal than spring...

cloud day #168 20th October 2014

Lots of cloud, heavier at the bottom; it's been a day of contrasts (when isn't it in Auckland?), light showers, sun, wind, cloud...

cloud day #167 19th October 2014

The difference between yesterday's sky and today's is marked. White cottonwood balls float in a sea of blue. Nice and sunny today...

cloud day #166 18th September 2014

It's a rainy one today with squalls of heavy showers evidenced by the sky you see here...

cloud day #165 17th October 2014

A thick blanket - no a duvet - of cloud, resembling layers of fat? or that might just be me and imagination...

cloud day #163 15th October 2014

It's difficult to tell if that is a faint line of cloud hovering over the hills or just the change in light creating that effect. Either way, a stunning late afternoon...

cloud day #162 14th October 2014

A little like yesterday, although no two skies can ever be completely the same...isn't that mind-blowing? That has to add up to trillions of different skies over lifetimes of people!

cloud day #161 13th October 2014

 Greens, browns, blues, white, shadows - they're all here...and more probably, with careful perusing...

cloud day #160 12th October 2014

Reminiscent of the background in an Old Masters painting - golds, cerulean blue...

cloud day #159 11th October 2014

An evening shot, after a sunny and warm day. Hints of cloud in the fading light...

cloud day #158 10th October 2014

How's this for drama? Note the 3D white cloud on the lower right! This image looks as though it is straight out of prehistoric gondwanaland!

cloud day #157 9th October 2014

This cloud looks heavier here than it actually is. Here it almost looks like it is impenetrable, the kind of sky that snow falls from. Today has been one of those still, grey days, more suited to autumn than spring!

cloud day #156 8th October 2014

Not quite the thick layer of yesterday as the cloud is broken up a little, but similar...

cloud day #155 7th October 2014

I like images such as this - a layer of heavy cloud blanket-like, with clear underneath...

cloud day #154 6th October 2014

Wow, it doesn't get better than this. Well, it could - it would just need to be a degree or two warmer and the wind exiting stage left. A brilliant day despite that though.

cloud day #153 5th October 2014

Scudding clouds scuttling away over the hills, blown no doubt, by the raging westerly...

cloud day #152 4th October 2014

Fluffy fluffy and blue. perfect!

cloud day #151 3rd October 2014

The weather is deteriorating, typical spring - just when the sun and warmth are sufficient to shed a few layers, in roll the clouds, down comes the rain and the wind...

cloud day #150 2nd October 2014

I think a bit of camera movement has happened, rather than a cloud doing a twirl! Another blue sky although some cloud activity today :)

cloud day #149 1st October 2014

Oops something is in the way of the pristine sky, and it's not clouds that's for sure. Not much to report except blissful blue and warmth!
