If you like photographing skyscapes, then Melbourne is the place to be. Because our weather pattern is so unstable, the sky can be clear blue in one quadrant and completely grey on another part of the horizon.
It’s not unusual for us to experience extreme variations in the same day. Winter and summer are never far apart in this beautiful city. In fact, even though we are midway through spring here, we still had ice on the cars a few days ago.
You have to remember that our weather is the "opposite" of yours. So while the rest of the world celebrates Christmas Day in winter, it is our scorching summer. But remember what I told you about our weather gods being capricious? Two years ago we had snow on Christmas Day and the temperature (in our summer) was colder than in was the same day in New York, at the height of winter.
The lattice that you can see here is the metal "skirt" of the Victorian Arts Centre. I took this shot while I walked down St Kilda Road about ten weeks ago. The same branches that are bare in this shot are now covered with fresh green leaves.
And if you’d like to walk down the road with me now, the sky could well be grey by the time we get there!
