One walk, many skies

It was one of those bright and reasonably warm February afternoons where the sun is acute and golden in a bright blue sky yet it was already working on producing some wonderful contrast, whipping up clouds into monumental formations, sculpting them into long smokey shapes and, eventually, turning them sepia-black.

Temperatures started to plummet and, by the end of our walk, we had two different weather systems going on, one on each side of our path. Heavy sleet started coming down just as we reached the protection of the car and, through the windscreen of sticky white, we enjoyed watching the sunset starting to happen over the river from the top of the hill.

I’m a prolific photographer when it comes to the recording all the incredible light-effects that occur right above our heads and have a sizeable (ever-growing) Sky album on Flickr so am more than familiar with the sheer variety that the simple act of looking upwards can deliver. What is so impressive to me is that all these very different shots, snapped using the phone in my pocket, came from one single walk of an hour’s duration – which just goes to show that February is the most incredibly contrasty month!
