Dense Clouds from above and below.
The skies today have led to an evening thunder storm.
October has been a month of colour, of spring flowers.
A month of changeable weather, the southern hemisphere’s equivalent to “April Showers”. There have been warm sunny spring days, but also mornings when we have woken to snow on Mount Wellington, along with cold southerly winds.
It has been a month of rainbows, which is a nice way to sum up my month of colour posts.
The view from our kitchen looks towards Hobart’s Casino. I wonder what the response would be, if I showed them this photo and asked for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
My bucket list includes watching an aurora.
This evening, we’ve had our best view to date. Aurora Australis put on a show, with greens and purples in a wide arc across the southern sky, including vertical beams of light.
These photos are straight from our camera, no editing of colours.
It was a mild 14°C, on a beach just ten minute’s drive from home. Gotta love Tasmania!
The Aurora Australis forecast was favourable.
The clouds cleared before the expected storms.
We drove ten minutes to a south facing beach.
We weren’t alone.
Others were on the beach at midnight.
With cameras on tripods.
Was that green glow a hint of Aurora?
Home to bed, as there’s work tomorrow.
Better luck another time.
