Reasons to fly

Tuesday 4th June 2019, 5.10pm (day 2,840)

Wet airport, 4/6/19

Yes, I’m going away again. The North European Monsoon missed out 2018 but it has hit on time, and wetly, this year. I wasn’t the only one here today happy to be heading out somewhere away from it. (No endorsement of airline implied. Other budget providers are available.)

Rainy un-holiday

Monday 27th May 2019, 1.10pm (day 2,832)

Rainy day, 27/5/19

It was a public holiday today but I stayed in and worked: don’t give me sympathy though. It’s just a swap with tomorrow. And it rained today, anyway.

May storm

Saturday 11th May 2019, 2.10pm (day 2,816)

May storm, 11/5/19

Back in Hebden Bridge. In the afternoon, a sudden storm, but with enough sunlight around to make the drops glisten and shine: beautiful, but not if you were out in it. This is taken from the shelter of home.

View of Heptonstall

Sunday 23rd December 2018, 10.35am (day 2,677)

Misty Heptonstall, 23/12/18

On the drive over to parents and parents-in-law for Christmas, a view over to Heptonstall, which rises above Hebden Bridge (being the original village) and has featured on many pictures in the past. Perhaps I have post-processed this one too much but with the continuing grey light, in colour this one looked kind of wan and washed out, the mist being just patches of out-of-focus space. In black and white I prefer it and the church comes out more.

Soggy “Sun”day

Sunday 2nd December 2018, 11.30am (day 2,656)

Soggy Sunday, 2/12/18

The weather’s been fairly disgusting for several days now, and today was no exception. One of those days when the term “Sun”day is simply incorrect. I dislike this time of year: it always seems grey and cruddy, and it’s still getting darker. Roll on the Solstice.

Double rainbow (and rain)

Tuesday 20th November 2018, 9.05am (day 2,644)

Double rainbow, 20/11/18

This one definitely isn’t going to win any photography awards, but what the hell, rainbows are nice to look at, particularly when the light is bright enough to produce the rare double rainbow. On which the colours are always the other way around, remember. This shot also records the other thing you need for a rainbow, beyond the light…. A sign of authenticity at least?

Sunshine and showers

Friday 21st September 2018, 4.00pm (day 2,584)

Shower and sun, 21/9/18

Another grim day of weather, describable, at one level, as ‘sunshine and showers’, but the sunshine was brief and brought no succour, while the showers were prolonged and heavy. Here, they coincide, but I was still getting very wet.

Manchester Fluddle

Thursday 20th September 2018, 3.45pm (day 2,583)

Chethams fluddle, 20/9/18

A foul day of weather today, definitely the worst since early April. A reasonably pleasant morning tricked us all into going out without the right gear, a mistake very apparent later on when we had to return home in foul and heavy rain, and with plenty of time to remind ourselves about just how poor is the drainage on Manchester’s streets.

Back to Manchester (raining)

Wednesday 29th August 2018, 10.10am (day 2,561)

Rainy Manchester, 29/8/18

Felt obliged to put in an appearance in the big city for the first time (photographically) since signing off for my holiday on 3rd August. The weather brought melancholy in the morning, a feeling of autumn, though it did brighten up. The monochrome adds to the mood though really I only changed it to address a blob of anomalous colour (on the traffic sign in the background: near invisible here, a bright blue splodge in the original).

A wet 49th

Sunday 26th August 2018, 11.55am (day 2,558)

Wet birthday, 26/8/18

After a few weeks of getting out and about, my 49th birthday was spent at home in Hebden Bridge, and this is the weather that greeted it. I’m sure it’s not a metaphor for my advancing years…. but it was rather a wet blanket (OK, that’s a metaphor). Onward, anyway, onward with my fiftieth year on the planet (good grief). But the travelling is over for a little while.
