Nimbus clouds over Sorrento Quay.....

The weather in Perth was fabulous yesterday, we had so much rain which hopefully will have topped up the reservoirs a bit for the coming summer.  In one of the few breaks in the early evening I dashed down to Sorrento Quay to see if I might catch a dramatic sunset but the cloud cover was pretty intense..in fact only a few minutes after I took this first picture it pelted down, luckily I could see it coming and made the 100 yard sprint back to the car in gold medal time....!! The second pic is me waiting at the traffic lights on the way home, no reason for this except that I liked it and felt the need to share.....!! Have a great day.....

  4. That does look dark and threatening. The water is extremely clear. The second one looked like fireworks to me as well.

  7. Love the second one. It's hallucinatory. Makes me think of the late 60s and early 70s.

  9. How wonderful to know that summer is coming! The second photo has a surreal quality about it that is very attractive. Rain is really lovely (if it's not a downpour!). Walked my dog today doing a misty rainfall and it was lovely...I didn't have to sprint to try to break your record.

  11. These are great. Rain is always a wonderful thing.

  12. Topping off the reservoirs is good, assuming that they are used for hydroelectric power and not just flood control.

    In Costa Rica 97% of our electricity comes from dams, so rain in the mountains where the dams are is a good thing.

  19. Interesting intensity and portents in that top shot, Grace. We might have a bit of rain along the coast tomorrow morning. Has not rained for quite a few days, I think.

  24. lovely shots, i like the 2nd one more because of the blurred lights. regarding the reservoirs, thats good news. I was in brisbane unfortunately for the flooding last year and the reservoirs were topped up a bit too much. I still have to visit Perth one of these days... do they have huntsmen in houses there as well?

  25. That second shot caught my eye too.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The second one is wonderful abstract art. Was anyone else there with a camera to catch your sprint?

    Enjoy your day !
