Gray Skies

The skies around here have been pretty gray so far this month. There have been a few nice days mixed in, but all of the rain and gloom have made things kind of depressing. I know that the rain is good for the environment. Over the past decade warmer temps and limited rainfall have caused many wetlands to dry up from year to year, and the wetlands are extremely important habitat. So the rain is a good thing, but it does not help when you want to get out and photograph wildlife. Fortunately things look like they have begun to clear up a bit and hopefully we will have good weather for the butterfly census that I am working at this weekend.

Dark and gloomy skies are so much more interesting the a clear blue sky. It is easy for me to say this for we had the most wonderful weather this week.

That's funny...I'm sick of our blue skies and you are yearning for them! It is a very pretty environment. I bet the sunrises and sunsets here must be spectacular (when you can see them :) Happy skywatching!

Aren't you having summer now? We are having a real grey winter down under in New Zealand.

We have had nothing but rain and storms just about every day! Finally, today, the sun is shining! You are right - it gets depressing!

The weather gave you a beautiful, dramatic photograph. I live on a wetland and never would want to live anywhere else. It's heaven.

I know when you want to get out there and photograph nature, it's tough when all you see is gray sky. However this shot is beautiful. It's very comforting in some ways. Nicely done.

I do not like the gloom either but those are some of the prettiest gray skies I have ever seen!
