A Cloudy Sunset For A Monday Morning

There has been a cool change in the weather here on The Farm.  It has been overcast, windy and nowhere near as warm as it would usually be at this time of year.  (Poor Farmboy is doing swimming lessons - the kids all have blue lips by the end) It is going to warm up on Christmas Eve apparently, with the Christmas Day forecast still in the early 40s celsius (well above 100 F for you overseas readers).

Due to the abundance of cloud, the sunsets have been stunning.  Here are some photos I took when we were out walking on Saturday evening.

South East Again


I love the way the clouds reflect the light in the photos taken in a more easterly direction.  The clouds had a pearly luminescence that just doesn't show up well in the photos.

I love this photo too.  I wish I had it when I did my gum tree post.

The space, the light, the peace, the fresh air.

Wish I was there.

Thank you for the photos, AFW.

SSG - It is lovely. Sometimes I forget to look and then something happens and I notice it all again.

Georgie - Thank you, I couldn't agree more.

Amy - Thanks for commenting. I am glad you are enjoying the blog. Sometimes when I read back through it I wonder if it is a bit too quirky. But anyway, it is what it is!

I can almost hear the quiet just looking at those photos. I envy you your wide open spaces!

Sarah - Thank you. I love both the sense of place and space that comes from living on a farm.

Brasilian_Babe - Thankyou. I must admit to sometimes taking it all a bit for granted.
