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.

The ducks get a shower

Tuesday 24th July 2018, 1.35pm (day 2,525)

Ducks in rain, 24/7/18

Rain…. briefly anyway. Enough to soak me on the way back from town as well as give these ducks a dousing on the river.

Cold weather sky

Friday 15th June 2018, 6.40pm (day 2,486)

Cold weather sky, 15/6/18

With mare’s-tails spread all over the sky and a circumzenithal arc showing off the ice crystals in the upper atmosphere… I think the recent warm weather might be coming to an end. Still, that’s an English June for you.

Rainy day

Friday 25th May 2018, 5.30pm (day 2,465)

Rain on bench, 25/5/18

Not an eventful day, and it won’t be an eventful weekend. Rain fell for the first time in three weeks, but it was of the light, refreshing kind that the plants needed before everything begun withering away. No sitting outside the pub this evening, however.

Big blue brolly

Friday 27th April 2018, 1.05pm (day 2,437)

Big blue brolly, 27/4/18

The defining feature of the day…  and the last couple, to be honest…. rain. Persistent, grey, cold. But what the hell, it’s the weekend.
