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!
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)
In response to https://ceenphotography.com/cees-challenges/fun-foto-challenge/
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.
Still life shot of various vegetables set out on a slate Cheeseboard, some onions (white and red), a tomato, a cut Cabbage and the return of one of those Carrots we saw earlier
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.
Last but not least, here’s a close up of a cornflower – i like this one because of the colour!
as the sun says peek a boo
over multi coloured high rises
for an hour or two
Skies turn into confectioners delights
as cotton candy clouds turn from white to blue
with occasional shades of pink or yellow
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

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
