Photographed, as always, from my living room window, back in August.
Rain and sunshine equals rainbow and there was one the other day. It was quite faint, or maybe I noticed it too late when it was already fainting.
Here’s the pics.
Mostly because I couldn’t think of any.
One of my better sunsets.
The reason why I take so many pictures from my window is that I’m lucky to have such a good view. No buildings in the way and when the weather’s clear, I can even see the Yorkshire hills in the distance.
I snapped this on the way back from Tesco yesterday evening. It looks like a shot from a different planet–maybe something the Curiosity rover took on Mars–but trust me, it’s just a Wednesday in Manchester.
I don’t often photograph sky with my phone, but when I do, it’s out of this world.
I have not posted for a while. I haven’t been using my camera much lately either. I have not taken a single photo with my camera in June and only a couple in July (and that was because I made myself do two pics from my window). I don’t want to get into the reasons why here, what I want to say is that it’s August now and I do have an August photo. As it happens, also taken from my window.
I was treated to this view while watching the Athletics in London. I remember it was just minutes before Usain Bolt’s last individual race. 100m is just so thrilling–only ten seconds and you have a winner. But I digress.
I’m never quite satisfied with any of my sky pictures. Looks like I still have a lot to improve.
This is one of the July ones:
Half-white and half-grey sums up the crazy weather we’ve been having this summer. Showers followed by sunshine followed by more rain.
Reflection of clouds on the glass building.
Edited: The photographed building is the National Football Museum in Manchester.
Sometimes, there is no need to leave the house to see something beautiful.
Very convenient for a lazy person like me.
We have been having what my colleagues at work described as “schizophrenic weather” with burst of sunshine followed by heavy showers, followed by more burst of sunshine followed by heavy showers… you get the idea.
So yesterday I finally got a chance to snap a rainbow with my new Canon. I bought it in February; prior to that I was using a compact Fujifilm, yeah I’ve not talked about that… Anyway, I’ve been waiting for rainbow ‘cos I’m such a sucker for rainbows–come on, a colour spectrum appearing in the sky? A sight for both artists and scientist? Yes, please.
I was talking to my mum on Google Hangouts when this happened:
I’m looking at this one and thinking, hmm, the only thing missing form here is a pink unicorn.
One of my favourite things about the flat I live in is the view. I’ve taken numerous pictures from the window. Here are two more of the same full moon from previous post.
I’ve got a bit of a thing for skies and sunsets.
