Every year at around this time, our normally predictable continental weather has one of its oddball episodes and goes completely haywire. A fascinating study in meteorology, in the space of a single day you can experience anything from a 20 Centigrade temperature variation to clear skies alternating with hourly thunderstorms (and sometimes hail), dead calm to 20-knot winds, and pressure changes that would perplex even the most advanced barometer.
Today though we were blessed with just a mild outburst of the above, which was a perfect opportunity to head out to the field and do some photography. Bored of either clear skies or dull overcast, I found a backdrop of menacing thunderstorm clouds punctuated by bright sunshine to be much more exciting, and with flight activities getting finally up to speed was assured of at least some good results. In the end – after snooping around for five hours – I must say I was quite content with the results… 🙂
