When i saw this prompt from cees black and white challenge, I

expect you knew the response you see – It’s blooming

Autumn, they cried!

The weather’s bound to be bad,  said some we’re gearing up for winter

Hot climates moved back, said others, towards the equator…

Everyone’s thinking of heading where its currently Summer,

Relax – I said, enjoy the White Christmas!

#CB&W #Clouds

Tuesday afternoon.

Marshmallows floating over Greater Manchester

Take away the blue in the sky

and those clouds seem to develop

like a photograph in a laboratory

the clouds grow and move become more defined

and you find yourself looking for sleeping cherubs

Clouds – a reflection from inky

Now living during autumn 🍂 in the north of England, you tend to see a few of these.

When the wind makes its way east or west, they tend to follow its path

They’ve got funny names as well …. cumulus is the cloud ☁️ shape they use on the tv weather forecasts

When they expect a change it goes from a white cloud to a rain 🌧 cloud, if there’s a chance of sun ☀️, they put a cloud with the sun behind it…⛅️

The long thin ones are stratus, whilst the fast movers are nimbus club these together and you get nimbostratus and the really big ones cumulonimbus (don’t like being out when they turn grey)

Starting off with a Colourful one, taken at a session of the photography group Basic Clicks – Six Colourful Carrots on Blue Canvas!

here’s a couple of interesting Cutlery pieces – the first is of four forks against a wall,  – i liked the shadows created in this pic.

Combination of ideas here, with a twist – Spirals of Cutlery , set on canvas.

Now fellow wordpressors might have seen this one before, but as its cees photochallenge, i thought i’d put it on here – not for the wonderful bridge (that’s the wrong letter folks!!!) but for those fluffy white marshmallow clouds , over looking the quayside at Salford, attached to the Manchester ship Canal.

Blue flower

Last but not least, here’s a close up of a cornflower – i like this one because of the colour!

Storms a Passing

From the Archive at Allpoetry.com, thought i’d share this one – a poem on the rain!

 

The field needs a watering
so nature gives a hand
layering the clouds so
they’re above the land

As sun heads off
to the other side of the world
the pockets of clouds are
about to be unfurled

dropping the contents
onto fields that are green
growing the veggies
the peas, potatoes and beans

And as water falls
it refreshes the soil
so the farmer has no problems
and his plough does not toil

But the best thing of the night
apart from the moon
is the red sky of evening
good weathers coming soon

Clouds in the water

Salford, 15th May 2017

You could almost mistake them for the real thing

confused Canada geese try to eat them as an appetiser before lunch

they seem to float gently on the waters edge

easy pickings for our feathered friends

Bubbles arise from deep below

but clever fish they do not show

as anglers sit along canal bank

the hiding oxygenator fish have to thank

but with one move of a beak

illusions are shattered –

disappearing in ripples

across the water
