Sky Watch Friday - Isolated showers


Sometimes nature gives us a spectacular display when we least expect it, like this scene I shot through the windscreen of the car when we were driving to Cape St Francis some time ago. Just in case you were wondering, I was the passenger.

For more great pictures from around the planet visit the Sky Watch site.

Jakkels trou met wolf se vrou. An Afrikaans saying for when it rains while the sun is shining.

Ethereal light. You right about never knowing when the sky will light up in a peculiar way.

Stunning! It reminds me of last week when, in the midst of flurries of snow here in London, the sun came out and lit the scene - it was magical!
