rain............

Last night we got some fantastic rain......1 inch/25 mls.....crop saving rain...............we have not had any rain for about 6 weeks so it is very welcome..............and it is about 3 months since our last good fall of rain...............late this afternoon I went out to try and snap some pics just in the last light of sunset..........it was dark by the time I came back in but I was watching the storm out in the west.............

not to clear but I didn't have my tripod with me...............

love the cloud formations.....

this was to the north...........it was dark..........I caught this flash of lightning............

this one is really doubles but I like it............

lightning around 3 sides.................it is thundering again now and will see if we get some more during the night............no mail man today...............to wet...........

Take Care til next time..............

  11. What gorgeous pics!! AND I must say I love the way you put the print lined up right over to the left...VERY NICE. I have a new pair of glasses (progressives) and am having a heck of a time reading with them. I haven't been able to read your entries when they are long and centered -can't focus to the next line. So I thank you....and no I'm not a hundred years old... I just sound like I am.... :o) Take care!

  18. Hopefully we'll see some of this this wet season up here in North Queensland....'the wet' often provides us with much welcome rains but on any other given day....sun, sun, sun! Beautiful I know, but nothing beats a good storm!

  25. Oh it was great to get 2 nights of rain here near Tamworth too. I used to live down the coast and it used to pour, pour, pour. We have always had metal roofs and I just love to hear the sound of rain falling on the roof. I hope your tanks are full, ours are, what a blessing for your crops too. We had about 25 mils all up.

  32. I was so inspired by your pics, I walked round the garden taking a few snapshots of flowers and even remembered to take camera on my daily walk of the scenery! I was quite surprised how they turned out! So thankyou! Lisa
