Opportunistic Travel Photography and Occasional Geo-Tourism
A precursor to a cold front… I’m now pulling out all the winter woolies in preparation for the next few days!
Hartbeespoort, South Africa – May, 2011
Got something to say? Go for it!
Pretty sky, shame about the weather to come though.
The bonus with being here on the Highveld is that these fronts don’t last too long… the blue skies shall return soon! (I hope, sooner rather than later!)
Gorgeous sky. Well Lu, less than four weeks to Summer Solstice here in the UK, then the nights will start drawing in as Autumn starts to appear on the horizon! ‘Ain’t nature and the changing seasons wunnerful?
Gotta love it! I grew up in the north of Scotland and loved the fact that summer days were excedingly long days..(although not particularly warm).. As a student you could go out for the evening, and sit in the pub for the mere few hours of darkness, then stumble home in daylight! -(helped slightly by having longer licencing hours than in England).. It’s all good!
I actually hope that the UK does have a good summer this year – to make up for all the snow and ice during last winter. – I was in Edinburgh for Christmas, one night registered -18oC!!
Ha-ha, I like the sound of those student days! Long summer days – aahhh.
It registered around the same temperature here in England as you had in Scotland last Winter. One night we watched the thermometer go down a degree every few minutes. My knitting needles were going ninety to the dozen as they say (somewhere). Layers, Lu. Layers.
I hear you, I hear you… my fingers would have been too cold to knit (now a total softie living in Africa…it all seems sooooo much colder back home!) :)
It is strange that we are opposite in seasons – but great for the photography!
I just went through the worst (long and constantly snowy) winter I can remember … even though there is a crazy humidex warning for tomorrow of a steamy 44 degrees Celsius (111F) I’m looking forward to it!
Yup, staying warm. Although I have to admit that it is nowhere near as cold as you guys have it in Canada. It is only really at night, after the sun disappears that the chills set in. During the day can be quite pleasant. It’s really tough living in South Africa ;)
Enjoy your “steamy” weather! 44C is pretty darned warm.. you’ll be wishing there was a snow drift to dive into just to cool off a little!
Another lovely shot
Thanks Greysqrl :)
