Autumn Weather Images 2017 . - 04/04/2017 07:45

Please post your Autumn 2017 weather images here.

I don't know how your Autumn is going Oz-wide, but I wish that my camera was waterproof. No matter where I've been this Autumn the cloud cover has been 7/8ths or heavier ... and then it rains.

My weather theme for this Autumn is called, 7/8ths or heavier. Please enjoy the greys. The camera's white level for all the images was set at 5500K.

Steep Grades Slippery Surface, midday, Bylong Valley, NSW.




The Eastern spurs of Mount McLean, early morning, Bellthorpe National Park, Queensland.




The Glasshouse Mountains, early evening, from Bald Knob, Queensland.




Mid morning, looking towards the slopes of Mount Mary Smokes, Queensland.




Midday at the Ramsar listed wetland Little Llangothlin Lagoon, high on the Northern Tablelands of New South Wales.




When ever there is a coal train, it is a very dark day. The Upper Hunter Region, New South Wales.




Last Thursday, 30th March, I was NE of Dunn's Swamp, in Wollemi National Park. It was early afternoon but it might as well have been night, it was as-dark-as. The rain was hammering and I hardly had a dry stitch left. A bit of shelter from a small overhang gave me some reprieve from the rain.



While I was deciding what I'd do next, to wait or to continue on, I switched on my ipod to brighten things up. I have 902 songs on my old ipod. I still can't believe it but the first song to play was, 'I Wish It Would Rain' by Steve Harley. I'm still laughing at what was a 1 in 902 chanced selection. Obviously one of the Weather Gods was taking the pi$$.

If you don't know the song here it is ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KG5QC9Z9S4M ... do play it loudly, I had to, to drown out the rain.

Warren.

Lol that's so ironic!! Nice to see your pics again Wazza, it's nice to see sunshine in that third pic.

I have a foggy photo as well:
Taken at Mt Keira above Wollongong on 21st March.


And some sunny ones on a rare clear day:
Wollongong South Beach 27th March






Of course they don't compare to your pics but it's nice to contribute to this thread anyhow.

Here are images from Lane National Park around 4:30PM on April 9. It was a sunny afternoon after a fairly cloudy, chilly day (for Sydney):

Reily aka Wave Rider, thank you Mate. I think that I would rather enjoy photographing your coastal weather.

It has been an interesting Autumn so far, crazy. Shot taken from the Cotter Road, above the confluence of the Cotter and Murrumbidgee Rivers at the Northern end of the Bullen Range, ACT.

The Blue Mountains get very foggy and misty is a South Easterly weather pattern. Sometimes that means white-out, but at other times when it's clear where you're standing you get get interesting cloudscapes with cloud/fog below and also clinging to and blowing around clifftops and hilltops.

------------

Here's one of my favoutite trees, in a front yard in Chatswood. It is always among the first to show colour in March and turns this attractive dark red colour when in full display. It's around midday on a clear, warm Good Friday, about 22 degrees.

Great to see so many autumn photos displayed. Thanks for sharing Wassa, Wave Rider, Eddy and Steve. I've held off commenting until now as I normally wait until I have a photo to share but it seems I've found myself in a drought so to speak ... I haven't scored a decent pic for months. Hope I can rectify that smile

Reilly 'Wave Rider' and Nick 'Skysthelimit' thank you for your rewarding comments. Nick I'm glad that you enjoyed the ipod story and thank you for your note.

When cyclone Debbie made landfall and then turned South, it coincided with me leaving Queensland. I drove South along the Great Divide. Incredibly, it wasn't until I had driven 1100 kilometres South and reached Boorowa in NSW before I was out of Debbie's rain influence.

There was one short time at Talooby in the NW of the Blue Mountains when the rain was clearing. It didn't last long before it started raining again. Here it was worth a shot.

A temporary halt to the rain at Talooby, NSW.

Nice one Wassa. Lovely mix of colours and good use of the road to take us into the picture. Our eyes will always follow a road or stream or fence etc smile

Nice to see good opening rainfall for the farmers throughout much of SA over the last few days. Should see things green up quickly if we can get some follow up. Theres generally fog after a good fall and this is my first fog pic for a while. The colourful sky made an otherwise boring shot a bit special smile

A very average image from today, but pretty much sums up the last week or so around here, constant stratocumulus and next to no sunshine...enjoying the temps though!

Conditions lately really haven't been conductive to interesting landscapes. ah well!

Great stuff Markus and Wild Wassa!!

Waiting for a decent sunset at the lake, I happened to look eastward and spotted this beautiful light on this tree, I managed just three shots of this tree when the light faded away.
The last light on the lake.

Thanks for sharing Wassa, Markus and Eddy.
As I mentioned in our local SA thread there has been an abundance of farmers burning off their stubble over the last few weeks. Sometimes the smoke layers adorn the sky long after the fires are out. Last nights full moon had a distinctive pink colouring which only dissipated once it climbed higher into the night sky. The last picture shows the lights of farm machinery at night as the farmers work their land following some good opening rains.

Nice set of images there Skysthelimit!!
I really like the moon image, is it setting or rising? And what lens are you using?
Posted by: Skysthelimit

Re: Autumn Weather Images 2017 . - 13/05/2017 02:01

Hello Eddy. The moon was rising but the sun had only just set which left too much light and consequently the moon was left looking a little dull and lifeless. I used my Pentax 55/300 zoom lens

Amazing pics everyone, it's really great to see the photography threads busy again. There was a while not too long ago where no one was posting in these threads.

I will upload some pics later if I can be bothered. smile None of the ones I've taken lately are too crash hot and none come even close to the quality on here- amazing.

Re: Autumn Weather Images 2017 . - 24/05/2017 08:52

Nice colour in those autumn leaves Steve and Wassa. If only they lasted a little longer than 2 weeks. Actually I had to look twice at your first pic Wassa. I was looking at the car parked in the driveway thinking 'that aint a zephyr' smile
Eddy, yes you'll have to treat yourself to a longer lens. I have a lot of fun with my zoom. I think sometimes you just need one to achieve the result you desire.
Markus its nice that you had an idea and a location picked out and finally one morning everything comes to fruition. Well done! Go SA smile
Oh and Wave Rider I'm sure we'd all like to see anything you'd like to share from your part of the world. smile
I hope to put some pics up shortly ....

Cheers mate! For that i'll chuck up a few more from that morning, was bloody awesome to finally get back out into the fog, I didn't see one good event for the whole of last year!

Thanks everyone else for the comments as well smile

Imgur compression affecting these images a little, but not too bad.

The blanket effect of fog is always best just before sunrise.




Side lit here. The above image was taken looking to the right, but the fog was deeper in the valley behind me and was flowing around the hill I was on like a slow motion river. The sunrise lit it up so that everything was saturated in colour.




Had to get a pic of this scene, the fog had lifted from the next valley over, 'eclipsing' the sun, whilst the inversion held in this valley.


Sad to see it is almost the end of autumn frown still see the odd tree that hasn't turned, another week of autumn colours and it will be done and dusted I think.

Thanks for sharing Wave Rider. My favourites are no3 and no7 I think because of the people element (plus I love waves) Do they catch a lot of fish at Flagstaff Point? Looks like a top spot smile

Re: Autumn Weather Images 2017 . - 26/05/2017 00:16

No worries Skysthelimit, yeah I think it is a pretty good fishing spot. Those two photos were actually taken at the same place but no3 looking east and no7 looking south. Yeah it's a nice spot there and right near the city as well.
