Sixteen days into winter!


It's official, the weather in Perth has no idea how to conform to seasonal norms! The week ahead reads like this.. yesterday (when I took these shots) forecast 'sunny 4 to 21C, today thunderstorms, will let you know :) Wednesday thunderstorms clearing, Thursday no chance of a shower, Friday it's all over! Yeh I know, I'll be whingeing when it rains everyday for a week.. or will I? The view from half way up the lighthouse at Hillarys Boat Harbour.. there was a very strong northerly wind blowing causing a bit of 'movement' up there.. didn't linger :) Hope your week has started well, happy Tuesday, take care...

  1. I find lighthouses fascinating. This one's different from some I've seen, but stands out well against those skies.

  4. Fortunately not had a short "winter" like our winter in Finland, that is snow.
    Wonderful lighthouse.

  9. BLUE!

    4 to 20 is slightly strange! :-)

  10. The seasons start on the sun's position here so we have 5 days until summer. Sounds like the government is involved if they start a season on the first of a month.

  15. The bright sunny colours are lovely. But the need for rain can stop you enjoying it sometimes. We have had our first winter temps this week. 21°C. Cold in the mornings.

  16. You don't need the rain? We're on bended knee praying for it. Well, we would be if we weren't guiltily enjoying warm (but not hot) weather.

  17. That was very brave of you to climb the lighthouse, half way at least.

  18. I understand your wish to get the heck out of there. But I'm not sure I'd have gone up there in the first place. It did, however, give you a chance to get a nice photograph. That sky looks yummy!

  19. lovely view even from half way up.

    Whew wish we could have a little winter here. It was almost 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

  20. Ah what shiny bright pics Grace, and aren't you brave! The weather? We were warned to expect really rough conditions today but it's the most beautiful morning, just like yesterday - is it the weather refusing to conform to the forecasters perhaps!!! Enjoy the sunshine while its here and have a lovely day, xJoy

  21. Well these two photos have the look of summer to them!

  22. Happy Winter! Still not quite summer here. Very nice light house photos. Remember if it did not sway a bit in the wind it would fall.

  32. Winter shminter, Perthgirl - I love it when I look at the weather report HERE and it says "current temp 11", and underneath "feels like 7". The 7 is usually an exaggeration.

  33. Looks like a great Winter to me! ;)

  34. Our winters look quite different! ;-)

  35. Well, we´re not into summer yet (21st it is), but awww, well, can´t wait for a blue sky like that, Grace! 21C cloudy over here...

  36. The comfort shot, white painted structures and clear skies !
    A color of lighthouses must be a white, of cause.
    Wonderful Blue and White.
    Thanks to post.
