A sunny day at last!
45/52

I'm getting a bit behind with posting my weekly challenge photo. I actually thought that I'd have to go off-topic last week, then, finally, last Friday, we had some sunshine. Unfortunately we had people coming that day to cut down a couple of big trees in our garden, so I couldn't go anywhere and you'll have to put up with the view from my study window.

A sunny day at last!

This week was more varied than last week. We've had brief sunny intervals intermingled with sudden downpours, days of continual rain and some high winds, but no tornadoes, thankfully, though one did pass about 30 miles south of us. However, I am glad the two big trees have gone. We've been worried about them for the past few winters and a big branch came down off the one in the back garden last Christmas. If we're going to have a windy winter, I'd rather not have the additional worry of branches and trees falling.

Tornadoes just seem so non-British Isles to me.

Is the weekly photo challenge organized somewhere? I'd like to give it a try.

Apparently we do have a lot of tornadoes, but they're just very small by US standards. We don't have your huge expanses of flat open space to allow them to build and grow.

The Flickr group is this one (link here). It started out as a bunch of people who had been on an Open University digital photography course, but this spin-off alphabet challenge is open to anyone. There's only a few weeks left of this year, but if you want to watch the group chat, there should be a new group forming soon so we can carry on next year.

If you're still interested, the new group for the 2017 photo alphabet challenge is up and running. Here's the link...

Thank you. I've subscribed to the calendar and the 2017 Flickr group.
