Stanage Looking Down the Hope Valley….After Summer Rain
They forecast showers but mainly sunshine. Well we did get some sunshine and lovely cloudy blue skies but we also had monsoon rain storms from dark clouds that came from nowhere. It has also been very hot and sticky…humid and high humidity isn’t something we are used to in the UK. Even a problem keeping the lens clear….still it adds to the effect.
So far we have managed to stay dry (well dryish !) We have had the contrasts of a wonderful walk, dash for shelter and driving through roads that are flooded
……..and right now the sun is shining and there are lightening flashes and the rumble of distant thunder…..I wonder if it will snow later?
