Life lessons in the weather….

Evening June 14 2015

It wasn’t even five o’clock. But that’s winter for you. We had rain, wind, early darkness and then through the dark clouds a final defiant burst of sunlight just as it tipped below the horizon…a little reminder that after the rain the sun will always come, in life and in weather.

Beauty in the winter branches blowing in the wind…

winter trees

Most of the trees have lost their leaves now…like these ones. Orange and yellow leaves litter the ground all over. The trees look quite graceful in their naked state. Their leafless limbs bending helplessly in the wintry gusts – no shelter available to man, bird nor animal in these barren winter branches…but still it is beautiful.


Catching spindrift…

Anzac weekend 2015 024

It was really blowing! The wind howled, the gusts were enough to blow you over, deck chairs went flying down the street…and at sea, the white caps stretching as far out to the horizon as one could see. The spindrift…. airborne white spray fans creating spectacular wind patterns across the waves. Windy, wild weather at sea.


The rains have come…

The rain has come at long last…starting slowly yesterday with a slow tease, but is now rolling thunder, lighting crashing through the sky, a torrential downpour drenching every surface, filling our rivers and lakes with much needed water.

This image,  a collage/paint/digital mixed media piece seems to be about this moment of rain after the endless summer. It is a fitting visual acknowledgement of the rain that has come, tinged with sadness in the realisation that summer is now, quite possibly over.
