Blue skies.. not always!



It was, as they say in the classics 'a filthy day' :) oh how I love those days! I enjoy driving in the rain, but when it's torrential as it was on the way to Kings Park yesterday je préfère being driven.. There was a time when the freeway was a little quiet on the weekends, now there isn't anytime when the freeway is quiet.. which is good, a sign that the many attractions the city has to offer these days are drawing Perthites out of the suburbs in droves :)


A drive by splodgy shot of St. Georges Terrace on the way to the park, even more fabulous in the rain! Show you what the city looked like in a thunderstorm tomorrow.. If the sun is shining in your neck of the woods this weekend.. enjoy! Happy Sunday, take care and stay safe..

  10. Great shots Grace - we are having the same weather down here, having really got into it midday yesterday. The rain came down in torrents overnight, so bad it was quite frightening but no thunder yet!!! Joy x

  11. And isn't photography wonderful after the rain? Well, even in the rain. Those first shots are quite dramatic!

  12. It is to be +27˚C and sunny here tomorrow - perfect for the 2nd day of summer! I don't mind driving in rain but snow is another matter - too many fools on the road, Grace.

  16. It was a good stay to stay home yesterday! I had to pick up my husband from the airport and I had to drive at 60km only as I could hardly see the car ahead of me....I hate driving in the rain!

  19. I bet you are happy to have rain after such a dry summer. I like the effect of only a little colour in the first shot.......mmmmmm how is it done??

  20. I bet that rain is a welcome sight to you. I know it would be to me.

  21. I like the way rain can make colours look so vibrant. I like rainy days as long as there aren't too many of them in a row.

  22. Why does the rain in your shots look refreshing and cleansing? Is there a hint of light behind those clouds?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Feels like home:) Just looks different with all the skyscrapers and the exotic trees etc. Do something nice and the rain is probably good for your garden.

  24. Ah yes, rain. Haven't had any in over a week and it feels good!

    How do you do that black and white with the blue and red popping out?

    ReplyDelete
