SkyWatch Friday

Yesterday we went to Zutphen, a lovely old hanseatic town on the river IJssel. The weather was great to take many photos of this wonderful city......... But shame on me. I forgot to recharge the battery of the camera and all I could shoot were these four pictures before it went flat.

SkyWatch Friday

Last weeks storms showed some interesting skies. The clouds were actually rolling, the sky turned dark green, almost black. It looked sinister and frightening. Never seen the sky change so fast from blue to black.

In the east the sky was still blue while

in the west it was getting darker and darker.

Watery Wednesday

Last week we had some heavy storms. One came so unexpected and quickly that we only had time to get the most important things in a save place. My husband forgot to take inside his important things though!

And finally after the heat wave the storm arrived. Temperatures dropped from 38C to 19C within minutes. Damage went into millions of Euros and yesterday's storm even took a life. The climate is definitely changing.

SkyWatch Friday

From the colours in the sky I can usually see that we have a beautiful sunset. But where we live it is impossible to see the sun actually set. It is a densely populated area and there is always a house or a tree in the way or the sun is hiding behind the hills. I took this picture last week end. Hardly a noticeable sunset but I thought the sky looked interesting.
