The Last Days of Autumn


We're being battered by some pretty dark and stormy weather at the moment. There's a mixture of blue skies, dark skies, drizzle, heavy rain, occasional (very) glimpses of the sun - and all accompanied by a seemingly permanently howling gale (gusts up to 80mph reported). This has been going on for about a week now with no let up apparently for at least several days more - but at least it's mild with max temps around about 13c (55f).
But I for one love the stormy weather, it's traditional British autumn weather, so here are a few pictures taken over the last couple of days by myself - during breaks in the rain!

Jim, I like it too, it's the challenge, thank the lord for digital. Exposures are the very devil. You've captured things well.

Awesome! My favorites are the last two. :o)

We don't get alot of stormy weather up here. People think, living so far north, that we probably have some very brutal weather. We do have brutal cold (-40C is not unusual at all) but not so much on the storms!

Have a great day, stay warm!

I like the top one best. The clouds here look boring today.

Autumn is my favourite month, your pictures are lovely :-)

I enjoy lying in bed and listening to the wind and the rain on the windows. There is also a beautiful Oak tree at the bottom of my garden which a love to see blowing in the wind.

Oh I so miss the stormy Autumn weather...
I was looking at the previous post also, it made me homesick to the point of distraction. The little terraced houses amd the street lights at the bottom of the hill, I will forever carry a place in my heart for those memories.
Awesome pictures.

Yes, the fall season is coming to an end. Soon the sun will be climbing north again.

Even in their anger, the storm clouds are glorious.
Very nice pictures.
