Another gap in the clouds!

Found another break in the almost permanent cloud cover we have been suffering lately!  Only 50 frames before the gaps closed for the duration:

A cloudy day Sun

First image for a week - just too much cloud about!!  Today was 98% cloud so I only managed 32 frames in about an hour - one or two at a time through the tiniest of gaps.

Six Magpies on the neighbours roof!

Six Magpies

One for sorrow,
Two for joy,
Three for a girl,
Four for a boy,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret,
Never to be told.

Sun 11 July

Lots of fluffy cloud about so cloud-dodging was the order of the day.  Too 220 and used 33 of them :

7 July Sun

On the day (one of two every year) that Solar North is straight up and south is straight down.  Sorry about the huge dust bunny - not sure where that came from!  Lots going on and yet another decent sized spot appearing round the limb:
