The weather here in England has been unusual of late with most of us enjoying a prolonged heatwave which at times has proved a little uncomfortable.
It was only a little storm but the rain was welcome and refreshing.
For a number of years taking photographs has been high up on my list of hobbies and like many of us, the hobby began with taking pictures of my children and making home videos.
When I retired, and before I took up blogging the inevitable boredom set in, and as a point and shoot camera hobbyist I began to look for more interesting things to do with my time apart from constantly checking the status of friends and posting on Facebook (I no longer do that).
One day while watching the local news on TV, my attention turned to the weather pictures that were shown at the end of the program. It was as though someone had switched on a light. “I could do that; I’ll become a weather watcher!”
An Amazon search provided me with a couple of weather thermometers, with one even measuring the rainfall.
After registering with the BBC, my new hobby or should I say my new obsession began in earnest! I measured the temperature throughout the day and took hundreds of photographs both here and away from home, and after uploading to the website I patiently watched every weather bulletin in the hope of catching a glimpse of one of my photos. Several were shown on TV and surprisingly, they weren’t even the best ones. A selection of which you see here today.
I still upload photos but not half as often as I used to.
