My commute home................................................... can you tell I love clouds

 The city of Manchester is well known for it's rain.... and yesterday was typical.
It rained for most of the day... luckily for me I was at work.
Leaving for home the weather had changed for the better... bright sunshine and lovely clouds.

 I had my little point and shoot with so I stopped to capture a few images.
This one is looking back towards Manchester.

The view west from the same spot.

 East towards the hills of the Pennines... the backbone of England.

This is towards my house............ it was throwing it down with rain over my little town.

Four miles further on and just a couple of miles from home...  the rain was easing.
It had stopped by the time I got home... today has been similar... heavy rain and hail this morning.
I have today's images to share tomorrow.

Your skies look pretty much like ours do today. I never really take much notice of the sky or clouds. Rarely take any pictures of either. That all changes though when I am in the desert. The desert skies put on a grand show. I like that last picture. Big dividing line.

Great clouds (and although I always talk about how glad I am not to be in rainy Oregon for the winter, I must admit that there is nothing, absolutely nothing, as wonderful as a sunny day after the rain stops! And looking at your post, I can almost smell that wonderful post-rain clean scent!

Those last clouds look quite threating, it is amazing the variety one sees in clouds.

April showers yesterday, blue sky so far this morning! Clouds are so much more interesting than a clear blue sky!

Pantherka said...

Greetings.

Sandra said...

beautiful blue skies and puffy clouds, I love them, and stand and stare, with the trees in front of the sky it is even better. when the sky is like this, i have to be careful driving because i want to watch the sky.

Not only are the skies and the tree beautiful - the design in your pics are remarkable!

Light and Voices said...

What a wonderful countryside view you experience daily going home from a hard day of work. I enjoy how your photos show your gratitude for being able to see this tree and WOW those clouds for background couldn't be more perfect.
