Friday Photo Challenge

Editors note; I’ve just realised I’m completely out with my timing, I seem to have missed a couple  of weeks somewhere, but having written the post I thought I may as well show you!

OK, I’m a day late, (or maybe more!!) but as I seem to have missed last weeks as well I thought I’d choose a few photos for this weeks theme, storm. Having done a fair bit of walking over the years I’ve a few storms to show you, although they’re only little storms as we’re fair weather walkers really! Our storms here in the UK also are usually a lot milder than other parts of the world we here about. It says it all that we still talk about the 1987 hurricane!!

The first one is a photo I think my daughter took of heavy rain in our garden, taken from the comfort of her bedroom !DSC_0005

This one isn’t actually a storm, but it looks quite dramatic! It’s a lunar eclipse from a couple of years ago.

So how would you knit a storm? This is the tornado in Wizard of Oz that whipped up poor Dorothy and Toto, it was knitted for the Tea and Tents WI camping festival as we always have a knitting theme. In case you haven’t sussed it it was wrapped around a rotary clothes line – brilliant idea!

We don’t get snow falls like we used to do, I remember building igloos when I was a child! The garden still looks pretty after a night of snow.

A Snowy Garden

I love seeing the weather forming across the valley, seeing the rain coming nearer (so long as I have all my wet weather gear!) This is Ullswater up in the Lake District. I always presumed everyone could recognise rain in the distance as being brought up walking alot it was something we always did. It was only when I was at work one day looking out of the window and I commented to a colleague that someone was copping a load of rain, she ( a self confessed townie!) didn’t have a clue what I was looking at, I then realised it’s a skill you learn from being outside in the countryside.

Another photo of the weather coming across the hills, this was from our last walk, St Cuthberts Way. We were really lucky on the whole as we kept seeing the rain coming across but it would go down the other side of the hill, though I think the one in the photo did make us rather wet!DSC_0223

I’m sure there will be much more dramatic photos of storms over on Postcard from Gibraltar, so follow the link to have a look.

 

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
