cloud day #283 12th February 2015

The edge of the roof intruded on this shot. Some sub tropical afternoon, not even rain, a sprinkle...

cloud day #282 11th February 2015

I like those white fluffy clouds; they are the kind you can make animals and other shapes out of when you lie down on the grass and gaze upwards...

cloud day #281 10th February 2015

Slightly later in the morning than yesterday's shot, but as lovely with blue and clouds

cloud day #280 9th February 2015

Lovely morning shot

cloud day #279 8th February 2015

The cloud from yesterday has broken up a little, to allow swathes of blue, yay!

cloud day #278 7th February 2015

Lots of cloud cover today, 'overcast' is the description - I'm not sure how this term came into being in this context and couldn't seem to find anything on the net to shed any light either

cloud day #277 6th February 2015

A nice enough day, a little windy, but hot...clouds scuttling along in the blue.

cloud day #275 4th February 2015

Rain, rain and more rain today...good for the parched land. The shape of the darker cloud is reminiscent of a less-threatening tornado...

cloud day #274 3rd February 2015

Wonderful sunset. We don't many of these, being on the eastern side of a ridge, but when it does happen it's magic. Note the moon, on the ascend, looking tiny through the lens.

cloud day #273 2nd February 2015

An early evening shot, after a lovely warm day...

cloud day #272 1st February 2015

The first day of February has brought showery weather, courtesy of the stratocumulus cloud formation. The land needed those last two days of rain, although the humidity is unwelcome - everything is damp...

cloud day #271 31st January 2015

Heavier skies today, with some light rain, terribly humid, and glowering...a touch of the tropics

Thursday, 29 January 2015

cloud day #270 30th January 2015

It's been (sorta kinda) threatening to rain today, but it has come to nothing except the dry hot wind again...lots of cloud activity though which is nice

cloud day #269 29th January 2015

Wisps and more solid cloud forms. Again, hot, sticky, windy...

cloud day #268 28th January 2015

Taken early-ish in the morning whilst the sun is still on the ascend. Hot, humid, windy, sticky already...

Monday, 26 January 2015

cloud day #267 27th January 2015

Lovely swirls of colour, like whipped mousse (sort of). A wonderful depth of blue underneath the white.

cloud day# 265 25th January 2015

There are exactly one hundred days left to go in my cloud project, where I pledged to post an image of the sky every day for a year...and to mark the occasion - a cloudless sky!

cloud day #264 24th January 2015

The optical illusion of the cloud sitting above the hills renders everything that little bit more dramatic...

cloud day #263 23rd January 2015

Blue, and white, and brown, and HOT

cloud day #262 22nd January 2015

In stark contrast to yesterday's greyness, is this graphic shot-silk looking image.

cloud day #261 21st January 2015

From this photo, you might think it a dull, grey, misty, coldish day...but it isn't any of those things...the sky is monotone - the kind of sky that often spells rain, but it is bright (ish) and definitely warm as befits summer.

cloud day #260 20th January 2015

Reposing on the hills is a line of fluffy clouds. I like the shadowing underneath the puffy white.

Sunday, 18 January 2015

cloud day #259 19th January 2015

Softest shades, look closely for the light glimmering off a cloud, like an Old Master's painting...and brushstrokes flickering outwards...

Saturday, 17 January 2015

cloud day #258 18th January 2015

Not a cloud to be seen, just endless shades of blue...

cloud day #257 17th January 2015

Another evening shot, could be winter, but it's the drizzle that Auckland had from the afternoon...

cloud day #256 16th January 2015

Dramatic evening sky - could almost be taken to have a fire in the background with billowing smoke all around...

Wednesday, 14 January 2015

cloud day #255 15th January 2015

Not a cloud in the sky, and Auckland is experiencing a succession of hot, summery days - almost unheard of for January!

cloud day #254 14th January 2015

Hot, hot, hot, clouds not amounting to anything significant, not enough to cast shadows!

cloud day #253 13th January 2015

The softest light this evening, lovely muted hues

cloud day #251 11th January 2015

Almost a replica of yesterday's image, this one features slightly more clouds going about their business...

cloud day #250 10th January 2015

Nice, soft light and wisps of cloud, vapour-like in their form...

Thursday, 8 January 2015

cloud day #249 9th January 2015

There has been the odd sprinkle of water today, and this sky is reflective of that. Humid though, and might be good for clouds and garden if more water was on its way!

cloud day #248 8th January 2015

Baby blue sky and floating white clouds, what's not to like?

Tuesday, 6 January 2015

cloud day #247 7th January 2015

Lots of cloud activity at the time this image was shot. Great three dimensionality to it and a lot going on!

Monday, 5 January 2015

cloud day #246 6th January 2015

The faintest line of cloud, hovering in the background. A cloudless day today, perfect (well, for non cloud spotters that is)!

Saturday, 3 January 2015

cloud day #244 4th January 2015

Almost cloudless today, save for the odd one scuttling past. No wind either, at least none where I am. A lovely, bright, hot, summer's day...

cloud day #243 3rd January 2015

Some cloud about today, and a cooling breeze, however warm, as you might expect given the season!

Thursday, 1 January 2015

cloud day #242 2nd January 2015

Hot, hot, hot, today. Smatterings of cloud that come and go - one moment the sky is blue from ear to ear, the next - like this. It is Auckland, after all...

cloud day #241 1st January 2015

The first day of 2015, and it's a cracker - as they say. Warm, hot even, a bit of a wind but nowhere as strong as we have been living with the past few weeks...summer is here at last (touch wood)!

cloud day #240 31st December 2014

The last day of 2014 has its fair share of cloud, and a forecast of rain, but there is some sun - yay!
