November Skies

They say if you don't like the weather here, just wait for five minutes.  And that's especially true for November.  A week or so ago I went for a drive when the clouds were blowing over in gusty winds and the sun was alternately shining and hiding behind the clouds, transforming them into dark white-rimmed ships against the sky.

I just stopped and shot at several of my favourite viewpoints.  This is one of the barns as you drive down Bowles Hill, looking north up the valley.

And my second barn view as you drive down that hill.  Here you can see the cliffs of Old Baldy in the distance.

Then down through the village I went, and here's Old Baldy from below, shot just at the north end of the village.

I went all the way north to Grey Road 40, and my favourite view down toward Georgian Bay.  In this wide shot you can just pick out the bright blue of the bay in the distance.

But when I turned around to drive south again, I was driving into the sun, and the clouds took on a whole new look, dark shadows outlined by the bright sun behind.

The clouds were moving fast across the sky too, constantly changing my position from sunlit to shadow.  One of our nicer November days!
