Battle in the skies.....!


We're back to the blustery, cold, rainy weather and it's hard to believe that just a few days ago it was sunny and 23C. People talk about the weather in Melbourne being so changeable, you can experience the full spectrum all in one day they say..well I have news for you, that happens here in Perth also, in fact I suspect it may happen all over Australia! I love the coast when the clouds and the 'big blue' do battle in the sky, today the clouds were the victors! As I'm typing this the wind is howling outside my window..nice! I took these shots today from Sorrento looking down the coast to Scarborough.
The houses you see are the coastal suburbs of Sorrento and a little further down Marmion, this is the coast walk that Aimee and I do regularly. If  you look a little closer you'll see a solitary, hardy soul striding along the beach and I do believe she is even wearing shorts, good on her! How fast has this week gone, or is that just mine! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, take care and stay safe.....

  3. Hour-to-hour weather must be a coastal thing, we get it here on the British Columbia "Sunshine Coast" also. Great vistas!

  6. Beautiful skies - even though the dark clouds are winning! I love walking on the beach, but not when it is cold and blustery! Have a good day!

  8. Yep, we are having loads of changeable weather at the moment, but I can sense an end approaching. Not if I stick my head out the window, though. Only by the calender on the fridge ...

  9. Victoria has Sorrento too! A holiday resort as well. Just that this place is now a place exclusive for rich people :(

    Wonderful blue ridden photos of the beach :)

  22. Your coastline is spectacular. Reminds me a bit of Florida's east coast, except we have lots of highrises. :(

    Re your comment on The Villages: I really have no idea what "poo" referred to but was afraid to ask! Someone might have said that was a crappy question! :-)
