One of those 'waking up above the clouds' kind of days...

Wednesday 13 December 2023

Sun trying to break through morning storm clouds & even glimpse of a rainbow but didn't last long. Maybe day indoors?

Wednesday 22 November 2023

On this afternoon's stroll, sun breaking through stormy clouds in a few places. Really beautiful even in the rain smile

Do you think we'll beat the tail end of Storm Ciaran to Toulouse? Looks like its gonna be tight!

Sunday 29 October 2023

Too cloudy for mountain views this morning, although not saying that's bad! Beautiful & misty here after sun up too.

Thursday 5 October 2023

Coastal start today then a few inland cols, which while only babies still got me above the clouds. Always special.

Camping by Lake Annecy. Bit grey on arrival but remnants of today's storm look cool blowing over peaks on other side.

Random shots from today's instalment of 'Driving Through Switzerland in the Rain'. Bit of a theme forming here!

Driving the Susten Pass (2,264m) in rain & fog. You'd think it would suck but: wow! Love me some misty mountains! grin

Monday 6 June 2022

Beaut day up the Tourmalet, if a tad breezy. Obligatory banana gets defocused as little fluffy clouds look nicer wink

Lunch above clearing clouds @ Refuge Orisson. Great steak & Gateau Basque - of course - nom! tongue Fantastic experience!

Wednesday 21 July 2021

I rode here the day before & so beautiful drove Pratiwi up to see. Roads above the clouds always feel very special smile

Afternoon stroll: Col de Beyrede to ridge above. Just made snow line. Spectacular & one of the best short walks here!

Tuesday 27 September 2016

Lovely Autumn day and just wondering around in the Pyrenean foothills. Sunshine. Fresh air. Tranquillity. Perfect.

Sunday 8 May 2016

Big week of riding ends with loop to next valley & home over this little climb. Stayed dry despite the clouds. Phew!

Friday 15 April 2016

Welcome to Lyon! This is why we usually avoid cities, but GPS says it's best way North. Doh! cry Cool clouds though.

Saturday 3 October 2015

View down to Arreau as we drive the Col d'Aspin. The clouds rolled over as we climbed so was a bit nippy up the top!

Sunday 5 April 2015

Nice view of the city & 'burbs after takeoff. See you around Sydney! And some crazy top end storm a few hours later.

Friday 1 August 2014

Interesting stuff parked next to East Midlands Airport. Ah, it's an Aeropark apparently. Plus obligatory clouds pic.

Tuesday 8 January 2013

Last of the cloud is almost burnt off by 2pm. Lucky, because it's a great view down on Laruns from here!

Tuesday 8 January 2013

Awoke to a misty morning. Took a drive over Col de Marie-Blanque anyhow. Wow! Above the clouds is a different world!

Wednesday 2 January 2013

Bit changeable out so just relaxing 'at home'. Clouds add something to the ever changing view from the lounge window.

Saturday 29 September 2012

The day before I rode up here in beautiful sunshine. Now look at it. The descent & climb side of Passo di Valcava.

Wednesday 29 August 2012

Passed this mad storm front on the way home. Threw in some 'extreme' processing too. We managed to stay dry, BTW! grin

Friday 10 August 2012

Cloudy ride today on the Grossglockner. 7° at the top where I arrived in short jersey sweating like a pig. Nice! grin
