We Had Some Sunshine Today


sunshine today 23 June 2013

We had glorious sunshine today, intermittently. For those few minutes, I rushed outside with the camera,  then the sunshine was gone behind the clouds.  Finally, in the late afternoon, I managed to be there at the right time.

Proof that we indeed have sunshine and shadows.

This morning Hugh called me outside,” Quick, or you will miss it”

“ Miss what ?? ”, There was this vertical cloud formation in the southern sky, not a vapour trail. This is how it was.

Morning Clouds #2


With a little processing, the sky came to life with deeper colour.

Morning cloud Formation #1

Quotation of the day, from Emanuel Carnevali,

“ All shadows whisper of the sun”

Greetings from Jean

That vertical cloud formation is amazing - never seen anything like it.

Us neither, Susan, I couldn't resist some processing to make it really stand out. Stay warm, cheers from Jean.

very neat skies and shadows. :)

Craig said...

It's remarkable and very unusual. Thanks for processing it so we could see it in even more clarity.
I hope that your weather in New Zealand continues to improve.

What a strange funnel cloud. I like your editing of it. Your Header is wonderful.

Nancy J said...

Thanks, all, our weather is getting better, icy here this morning, clear skies ,maybe more sunshine. Avalanche danger sown south, at one ski resort explosives have been used to move huge snow to lessen the risk. Cheers, Jean.
