Cyclone : next morning

Well nothing really happened last night.

Only a little bit of rain and wind gusts

and that was all last night.

This morning I took some sky photos again.

Was about 7:20 am

Same time as Saturday!

The weather report says it is not over jet.

Some heavy rain and strong winds up to 130 km an hour are still expected this afternoon.

The temperature outside is a high 25 C which is quite warm and unusual.

Cyclone? -Hurricane? Lucy closing in on North Island: Skywatch (Friday)

Friday is gone and I did not put some sky on!

Today, Saturday , will do for now.

Early morning from my front door again!

Lucy is starting to move closer and closer!

This was taken 7:15 am.

It is now 6:20 pm.

Heavy clouds are still covering the sky,

Wind gusts are coming and going.

Everybody is waiting for the rain and strong wind.

(Don’t know exactly what they call Lucy!)

Women’s Day

Thank you!

Today, on International Women’s Day, as a father of two daughters, I want to mention that I’m sad that in some countries women are treated without respect. My two daughters, grown up, with children, yet have the ability to unfold professionally: one is a banker in Munich, the other doctorate architect in Berlin.

Cows : Sunday Stills

Did not have time to do this one last week.

I have taken these photos last year in August already.

They are so cute.

These “cows” were very interested in what I was doing.

They kept on looking up and around the tree trunk.

Kept me in the eye all the time.
