January afternoon

Wednesday 22nd January 2020, 3.10pm (day 3,072)

January afternoon, 22/1/20

One of those days that was spent sat at home, marking.  On such days, photographically, I’m glad my house has a view. It’s been a mild winter thus far, which doubtless some will attribute to climate change but frankly I think Britain always does have these, every few years: the last really mild one was 2013-14. But then again maybe some east wind will cover us in snow in March, as happened in 2018….

The barometer falls

Monday 13th January 2019, 3.50pm (day 3,063)

Barometer falling, 13/1/20

Now that’s a substantial drop in the air pressure. These days the Met Office give names to all the UK’s various stormy moments, which makes it all very media-friendly. But hey, here’s me doing my own media thing so let’s pay tribute to the incoming Storm Brendan and hope it doesn’t screw up my next couple of days too much.

Rainy morning

Saturday 26th October 2019, 10.45am (day 2,984)

Rainy fire escape, 26/10/19

A rather mundane shot to mark the wife’s birthday — but she had a happy one, so I’m led to believe. It was, however, a very wet one, at least until the afternoon. This shot was taken from under the safety of an umbrella, which was much needed.

Rain shower at the marina

Friday 18th October 2019, 3.00pm (day 2,976)

Shower at marina, 18/10/19

Yes, I would rather the box was not there. But one can’t have everything. Otherwise this rain/sun combination did catch my eye as I came home early from work — very early, but then again, it is Friday.

Misty vista

Wednesday 16th October 2019, 10.10am (day 2,974)

Misty house view, 16/10/19

A couple of weeks at home loom, and today was spent entirely there. At least, for blog purposes, I do have things to look at out of the window — mist, and mast.

Taking shelter

Sunday 29th September 2019, 1.10pm (day 2,957)

High water, 29/9/19

More rain. The river is high, although I’ve seen it higher. Shelter seemed a sensible option this afternoon.

That’s your summer over

Monday 23rd September 2019, 8.10pm (day 2,951)

Rain at Brighouse, 23/9/19

The weather, so glorious on Friday and Saturday, took a decisive turn for the worse tonight — one I fear will not be retrieved. And my first class of the 19-20 academic year is tomorrow. Definitively, the summer is over.

Day of endless gray

Monday 9th September 2019, 7.00pm (day 2,937)

Grey September day, 9/9/19

The blue skies of the last two days were definitively absent today. The view from the back of the house was the limit of my horizons. Had I not set the monochrome filter you wouldn’t really see a great deal more colour beyond a kind of dull green on the hillside. Happy Mondays.

Mackerel sky

Tuesday 3rd September 2019, 6.20pm (day 2,931)

Mackerel sky, 3/9/19

Looking at this evening’s sky, you don’t have to be a professional meteorologist to confidently predict that a downturn in the weather might be forthcoming.

Rain and shine

Saturday 31st August 2019, 3.45pm (day 2,928)

Rain at the game, 31/8/19

The weather has been some rain, some shine, alternating every half an hour or so, for some time now. I like the way this shot catches the drops and also that charismatic tree in the background.
