Two's Company, Three's A Cloud

It's Not A Volcano, Just Our Autumn Sky

Photographs: DAVID McMAHON

I shot these pictures on Thursday, when Melbourne had a sudden return to squally weather. The wind was brisk, so the clouds were shifting very quickly and there was only a lapse of about a minute and a half between the first shot (above) and the second (below).

AHA! David, you're an inspiration! I will now become addicted to photographing "skyscapes" and be rid finally of the flowers... until Spring springs in Canuckia again.

Thank you. Your clouds are spectacular.

Hi Les,

Great to hear! Nothing wrong with your desire to photograph flowers.

You must train your lens on whatever catches your fancy.

And if that's flowers, then so be it ....

Keep smiling

The bottom photo is lovely-- actually a cloud formation that represents a shape all of us can easily see!
