What’s Up? Sky’s Up.

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.

Rainbow at Last

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.
