Stormy sky from the 14th by golftragic

Stormy sky from the 14th

It's been a very strange summer in southern Victoria, only a handful of hot days and far too many cool spells. My vegies don't know whether to grow or sulk and far too much of the latter happening. I took this shot last Saturday from the womens' 14th tee as the blokes we played with were walking. This downpour missed us but we got over 25ml/1" the next day.
So much happening here -- curves, fluff, and people golfing. Muted color that speak volumes about lack of water and coming rain.

Nice wide view that is all sharp and draws you in

@jyokota Glad you liked the shot Junko, thank you. The yellows and browns are typically Aussie summer colours, that fluff is dry grass more than knee-height in places and full of horrid seeds that stick in your socks. The fairway and tee are only green because the club has access to lots of recycled water or they'd be yellow/brown too. Very glad that rain missed us though.

@jgpittenger Thanks Jane, taken with my new phone.

Ominous sky and greens look good! I miss playing golf, which I started late in life. But then after the kids, I haven't found time for it. I'm glad you escaped the storm!

A great sky, but rain's not really what you need when on the golf course.

Fabulous capture of this beautiful scene. It could be anywhere here too. Love the dramatic sky, good that you stayed dry.

No doubt it was the storm that hit us hard here in Warrnambool. Flash flooding, overflowing guttering and many water damaged homes - luckily I survived all this :)

Good to see you are able to play golf again. Strange summer here too, so much rain. I am getting webbed feet.

I think I'll be looking forward to cooler weather by next week. 40c is not my favourite temperature :)

That's quite some sky. Glad you didn't get drenched.

Hi Marnie - it's so nice to see you out and about again. I haven't been very present lately so I'd like to wish you all the best for 2021. I hope you are keeping well and enjoying the freedom that Victoria worked so hard to achieve. Here's keeping fingers crossed that the vaccine eventually stabilizes the sporadic up and downs. Cheers Rob

Hi Marnie! Great shot and lovely sky.
January 6th, 2021  
Good to see you posting! That cloud almost serves as a leading line, into the depth of the course. And Iove the capture of the array of textures.

@taffy Thanks Taffy, what amazes me is this is little more than a snap with my new 12 Pro. I knew the cameras were supposed to be good but this is better than I'd dared to hope.

@haskar Hi Haskar, nice to be here again. Won't be daily though.

@robz Hi Rob, good be back again. I won't be posting every day, but will try to do so at least weekly.

@salza We were very lucky, that lot went just northeast of us.
January 7th, 2021  
@darylo I didn't start playing golf till I was 48, so still time for you.
January 7th, 2021  
@dide The course can always use the rain, but preferably not on us please. Would've copped a drenching from that lot.
January 7th, 2021  
@merrelyn Maybe we can average your temps and ours?
January 7th, 2021  
@onewing We had a very wet November, dry December and cool wet January so far. Welcome to southern Victoria. Quack, quack.
January 7th, 2021  
@gilbertwood We've had some rippers here too. Lucky that the worst drenching was at night - and the gutters coped!!
January 7th, 2021  
@ludwigsdiana Thanks Diana, we were delighted when that lot went northeast of us. Someone copped a drenching.
January 7th, 2021  
@taffy Thanks Taffy.
January 12th, 2021  
A good mix of things, Hope that these golfers made in before the rain.
January 13th, 2021  
@joysabin Yep, we were playing with them and all got inside safe and dry.
