SUMMER TWILIGHT SKIES

We have been experiencing some very unsettled Summer weather in Melbourne over the last few weeks. Temperatures in the high 30s and low 40s alternate with temperatures in the low 20s. Passing showers alternate with the blinding glare of unrelenting sunshine, while electric blue skies alternate with dramatic cloud cover. This may have to do with the global climate change that we seem to be experiencing, however, Melbourne has always had a reputation for changeable weather. Nevertheless, the weather gives us some opportunities for photography. Here are some gathering clouds in the evening a few days ago, which gaves us a few passing but welcome showers during the night.

This post is part of the Skywatch Friday meme.
