Summer in Perth is all very well, but the heat, the endless blue skies and 15 hours of sunshine a day can get a bit wearing.
I know, I know, how ungrateful!! Compared to England, we have good weather here – even when its cold, its warm. Blah blah!
Well, the summer has packed its bags now and autumn is coming and with it – clouds, rain and cool breezes. All of which are great for photographs. A bit of cloud and suddenly everything is a little bit more interesting.
We’ve had a few storms here over the last few weeks. Big arsed hairy Indian Ocean winter storms.
These are usually ok – the wind howls, the rain falls and then its gone. Except this time we had 2 of them back to back, the first with a sudden howling gale that knocked down fences and trees and damaged the roof and the second, a few days later, bringing 12 hours of violent wind and torrential rain. This, as you can imagine did not go well with the already damaged roof, and water came pouring in through one ceiling over of the windows in the back of the house. Bah!
