Skywatch Friday - Flowers and sky

Brisbane has just had one-third of its annual rainfall in a couple of days! Now that the skies have returned to normal, I couldn't resist shooting these flowers (that I just bought for my wife) against a Brisbane autumn sky. Enjoy!

Skywatch Friday: Deep blue

As winter approaches, and the sun moves further north instead of being directly overhead, we get the most marvellous blue skies - especially early in the morning. Here the sky is the deepest blue, with a few white fluffies for contrast. Enjoy!
