Many thanks to Baz for hosting this week. A great theme he's chosen. If there's one thing everyone likes to talk about (and photograph), it's the weather!!! It has been a record-breaking winter in many parts of the world. Here in the UK, it's been the wettest winter on record. That being said, I didn't take a single photo of any of the storms we had, so all my shots are from my archive!!
1) Storm Front At Amroth. Anyone who saw those extraordinary photos of the storm front over Sydney, Australia recently will see that this was a similar front, just on a smaller scale.
2) Desert Road Heat-Haze. Heat is not something that's easy to photograph, but the heat-haze rising from this road in the Mojave gives an idea of the scorching temps!!
3) Baby, It's Cold Outside. Frost on a wooden post. This was taken in 2009, when the area I live in had it's coldest winter for quite a while. Temps were -13C (8.6F). Not as cold as some places get, but rare for here.
4) Getting Wet. Anyone who's been to Florida will know that spectacular thunderstorms can appear seemingly out of nowhere, and disappear almost as quickly. The wildlife are used to it, and just wait it out.
