Moody Weather

Well the last week has thrown everything it had at the Island in the way of weather. The weather here is rarely extreme: apart from the occasional hurricane and the fact that it's a pretty windy place to live it's rarely bitterly cold. It's never hot. We don't often have snow and if we do it's usually gone within a few hours.  I'll admit that it does seem to rain quite a lot. But, hey, there are places to live where things are much worse.  The way I would describe the weather this last week would be 'moody'.

  1. Some very impressive skies there, Graham, especially the third from the top! Isn't it amazing how different the same place can look in different light?

    1. Absolutely Meike. I never cease to be amazed at the changes across the view from my window.

  2. Dreading the snow ahead here but sitting in the sticky heat here I'm enjoying looking at yours.... Beautiful.

    1. The only time I've ever seen snow up close in New Zealand is up in the Alps above the glaciers and on Ruapehu. There are usually odd pockets on the south faces of the ranges in North Island but they can still be there when it's lovely and summery lower down.

  3. Moody indeed. We've had our share of quickly changing weather too but your landscapes provide a much more dramatic setting ;) The third photo is amazing!

    1. Yes Monica Big Skies with nothing to impede the view do help when it comes to showing the moods. The third photo was sleet showers going up The Minch.

  5. What fabulous photos. I love the rainbow in the sea. I think you should enter it for a competition when you see an appropriate one. Amazing!

  7. Moody is a good term and I would think the mood changes often and quickly. Your photos catch the dark moods.

    1. Yes Red on the whole the last week the moods have been dark but when they aren't the light is absolutely stunning.

  8. Ooops, I typed the comment I meant for you on the space above, so I deleted it. Are you the visitor from Red Deer? I was born in Camrose. xoxo DeeDee

    1. I've tidied it up for you DeeDee. I seem to recall that in a post some time ago Red did explain that that was why he was so called.

    1. Carol I would love to have that talent. My Maternal Grandmother, Mother, Father and Brother and Son are/were all talented that way but those particular genes passed me by.

  10. Moody = crap, inclement, awful, miserable, duff, forgettable, depressing, wet.

    1. Oh dear YP that is a very depressing outlook. I much prefer living where I can have the roof off the car most of the time and, yes, I do prefer the sunny days here on Lewis too but perhaps I wouldn't appreciate them as much if I didn't also experience the crap. The one word that you used that I would really disagree with though is 'forgettable'. You never forget the weather up here.

    1. What is it with your comments YP that I always get two? Of course I'm not complaining they are always good value.

  12. I absolutely adore the third picture of the white sky over the sea. Beautiful. We don't call weather like that moody in Colorado. What everybody says here is, "If you don't like the weather right now, just wait five minutes!"

    1. Thanks Peace. We have a pretty similar saying here too although at this time of year the chances of the change being an acceptable improvement is small!

  13. A grand set and all without getting soaked. It is a perfect view.
