cloud day #210 1st December 2014

For the first day of December, a stunning vivid blue interspersed with white. Looks lovely up there - on the ground it's a somewhat different story with a cool southwesterly...

cloud day #209 30th November 2014

If you are interested in making seasons arbitrary, then today is meant to be the last day of spring. Note the heavier clouds on the hills, sitting on top of them actually, and the fine cirrus above, or may be they are broken up cumulus. Dunno. A less wet more sun version of yesterday.

cloud day #208 29th November 2014

The penultimate day of November is cloudy, with a chance of....showers. In other words, typically spring in Auckland with equal amounts of sun and rain and a fair smattering of wind to go with...

cloud day #207 28th November 2014

I like it when the images produce a 3D effect...these clouds seemingly floating past, almost touchable.

cloud day #206 27th November 2014

Layers of violet, cerulean blue, cornflower, baby blue - there are many descriptions for the hues of blue there are!

cloud day #205 26th November 2014

More space today, the monotone has broken up, into distinctly different hues of blue and white clouds, thick in places, not-so-thick in others. I prefer this to yesterday's!

cloud day #204 25th November 2014

Another misty sky, mist hanging around the hills making for autumnal vibes. Humid. Not much demarcation in the clouds which invariably signals rain.

cloud day #203 24th November 2014

This is an atmospheric sky, reminiscent of a London, or San Francisco fog. Except the hills are still visible. There is a fine, light, drizzly spray. Not enough to call rain.

cloud day #202 23rd November 2014

Cloudless blue, save for a thinly spread line above the hills, bottom right, hovering...

cloud day #201 22nd November 2014

Clouds floating by, a bit of rain around today not that it's evident from this image...

cloud day #200 21st November 2014

This is a momentous post - number 200. I have made it thus far, and had I realised what a commitment blogs are, I might have thought twice! (and this is just a small one)...

cloud day #199 20th November 2014

A purply-blue sky, with upswept wisps and floating cottonwool. What's not to like?

cloud day #198 19th November 2014

Larger fluffs than yesterday, floating away, so close, almost touchable...

Sunday, 16 November 2014

cloud day #196 17th November 2014

Back to cloud, thick cloud, grey and white cloud, rain cloud - no matter which way you look....sigh...

cloud day #195 16th November 2014

A warmer day today, and altogether more friendly. Random non-threatening clouds with blue, yay!

cloud day #194 15th November 2014

Thi image looks as though it ha been done through monochrome, but it hasn't (not knowingly anyway!). A grim day today with rain, wind, stormy.

cloud day #193 14th November 2014

Thicker, or more cloud evident today, even though it is slightly less rugged weather-wise, to what it has been earlier in the week. Hopefully the southerly will completely disappear by tomorrow ;)

Wednesday, 12 November 2014

cloud day #192 13th November 2014

Again, today the sky belies the true state of the weather we are experiencing on the ground. A cold bitter southerly (sort of refreshing) that you wouldn't think possible looking at this sky!

cloud day #191 12th November 2014

It's been a day of contrasts today. One minute, fast and furious wind and rain - the next, sun. Not especially warm sun unless you are behind glass however. Fabulous clouds here resting atop the hills.

cloud day #190 11th November 2014

In contrast to the last few days, here is a familiar picture! I seem to have posted so many of these of late...get prepared for bad weather!

cloud day #189 10th November 2014

 Denser layers at the bottom, lighter on the top, and blue…apparently not to last long according to weather reports. The weekend and today were just teasers, it'll be back to storms soon enough - and hopefully great cloud activity ;)

Saturday, 8 November 2014

cloud day #188 9th November 2014

As day ends, it has been another cloudless day. Perfect? yes, despite lack of cloud activity. I think everyone has been craving some sun and warmth lately and we had it in spades this weekend, yay!

cloud day#187 8th November 2014

Ha! not a cloud in sight…one of those rare cloudless Auckland days. Still a chilly breeze however...

cloud day #186 7th November 2014

Swirls, a spinning whirlpool kind of look, and the contrasting fluffy ones, lovely!

cloud day #185 6th November 2014

More tree in this shot and the clouds have a tumbling air to them, wispily sliding down to the ground, which is out of range in this image.

cloud day #184 5th November 2014

I'm loving the way the image has a 3-D aspect to it with the cloud at the front seemingly touchable. A lovely day with a chilly breeze...

cloud day #183 4th November 2014

A riff on yesterday's scene although these clouds have rather more grey to them. Nice shadowing on the hills and trees contrasting with the blue and white.

Sunday, 2 November 2014

cloud day #182 3rd November 2014

More movement in the sky and air between the clouds today, a feeling of lightness despite a lot of clouds in close proximity to each other.

Saturday, 1 November 2014

cloud day #181 2nd November 2014

Worse than yesterday in that there is no blue at the end of the tunnel - it's the monochromatic sky that so frequently leads to rain. Folds of clouds underneath, monotone at the top. Not so pretty if you hanker after sun...

cloud day #180 1st November 2014

It's turgid skies all the way today, thick, grey, menacing perhaps? But still with glimmers of blue!

cloud day #179 31st October 2014

An okay kind of day today, warmer, alternately sunny and cloudy but pleasant enough. Nice to see fluff clouds in the blue!
