Hubby and I went for a drive out to the Stirling range national park today (about half an hour drive from home) I wanted to get some mountain photos. We were out there about 2 hours and saw the weather change dramatically in that time. One of the mountains is regularly climbed by tourists, at least a two to three hour return climb, and it is easy to get caught out by bad weather rolling in. Quite a few search and rescues have been done in this area. This is the only area in the whole of western Australia that gets snow on the very top of the highest mountains when the weather gets cold enough, not every year but on rare occasions it happens.

These first three shots were taken when we first got to the area, as you can see sunny blue skies







Clouds begin to roll in



all of a sudden rain and the mountains almost disappear from our view





after the rain the sun comes back out

Well being a sky enthusiast I certainly prefer the first three lovely shots, but in that context the stormy shots are also quite interesting in a photo-journalistic sense. Life is after all not all blue skies... I hope the roaddid notbecometoo unpleasantly muddy!

Some nice shots there, the first one is the real winner though: that tree really makes the composition work nicely :|

Regards, John.
