A Break in the Clouds

My house and garden spent most of the morning in the clouds, with a slight easing of the thick mist by the afternoon. Later this afternoon, the clouds and mist broke, revealing a stunning deep blue mountain scene, surrounded by tufts of clouds both above and below.

I had a sweet baby butcher bird hiding from the dismal day on my back veranda for a while too. Unfortunately, with the light of the day so dark, little butch blends in a bit. Luckily his white feathers allow him to stand out slightly against the dark background. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Frank. πŸ™‚
      Our rainy season is mostly during summer, although it often begins in late spring and continues into autumn. It was late March four years ago that one of the worst floods on record for our area reached heights never before heard of.


    1. I love it when I strike something different and beautiful in the gloomy weather. It’s not possible every day, but some days I’m lucky. πŸ™‚


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
