Windy, rainy and chilly day with wonderful clouds.
Meet Christina, a hen that we found in our front yard. Christina, so named by our kids, spent the day happily exploring exploring the yard’s grass, picking insects and seeds.
At the end of the day, Christina had left the yard, probably picked up by its owners. We’ve been told later this hen likes to explore the neighborhood. It’s been fun to observe this hen methodically explore bits of the yard and be a great model for a few photographs. Like other birds, Christina moves fast. Anticipation is key to compose an image and focus.
Now I confess I do not have a signed model release, but I don’t think Christina will mind.
Yesterday’s weather made for a wonderful “show” in the Sky. Today was no less impressive. From dawn to dusk, huge cumulonimbus brought rain and light hail. They were followed by sunny spells quickly swept away by other anvil-like clouds pouring more rain, appearing as celestial threads. Dusk was very colorful with all sorts of cold and warm hues. Simply wonderful!
People say “never cast a clout till May be out” as the weather in April can still rapidly change. As the year progresses towards Summer, temperatures can still drop as low as 0-5C/32-42F and heavy clouds can bring rain and at times, hail.
Yesterday was such day, cold wind, low temps and rain. What a sight! The sky was constantly changing from dark clouds to rainbows to large blue patches before more clouds rolled in.
How not to be grateful for these moments?
