Nacreous clouds

2nd Feb 2016, Alnwick, 1pm

Lots of reports of nacreous clouds today. They are very high altitude clouds and are also called rainbow clouds for obvious reasons.

The word nacre means 'mother-of-pearl'.

Our planet truly is a beautiful world.

Sunset sky

My after-work walks are now in daylight and they end just as the sun sets.
The strong wind chased the clouds across the sky revealing the multilayered sunset behind them.

winter colour

31st January 2016,  4pm, Howick

On a grey winter day it's nice to look for textures in black and white but it's surprising what colour there is. Today we walked past Sea Buckthorn and an amazing Witch Hazel at Howick.

Lovely to see and feel the sun even if the wind was still fierce.

westerly wind

30th January 2016, Embleton Bay, 8am

It's been dull and stormy but there is light in the sky this morning.

The fierce Westerly wind is leaving our East coast sea untroubled

Compare these pictures:

The sea in one is the colour of the sand in the other and the sky is the colour of the sea.


Daisy found all this fascinating!
