While we may be sandwiched between the wide open panoramas of nearby Exmoor to the east, and the even more impressive sweep of the skies above rugged Dartmoor further west of us, here on the River Taw estuary we still get some pretty impressive sights overhead,especially in the evenings.
Having had some nice comments recently about a few pictures of these natural oil paintings in the clouds that I’ve posted online, I thought I’d go back through my many photos and put together a small gallery of meteorological awesomeness.
All of these photos were taken within half a mile of our house in Barnstaple, North Devon.
Low winter sun.
Dusk in the fields.
The sky can go from distinctly Turner-esque…
.. to apocalyptic.
This next one seems to involve a cloud floating in front of a house (no manipulation involved on my part I assure you)
You can see why I like to sit outside by the pond with a pint and watch the sunset can’t you?
And what better tune to chill out to at the end of a beautiful summer’s day than this ambient classic from the Orb.
