I felt a distinct sense of foreboding when I stood outside under this sky on 2 November.  And rightly so - it delivered a night of gales and rain.

Scribbles in the sky

Mound Place, Edinburgh, looking towards Edinburgh Castle. 

After a brief, delusional spell when I thought I could post a cloud photo a day, I've accepted reality and changed the tempo of this blog to the occasional mode.  I probably take a cloud photo a day, but turning it into a blog post is another matter.

Allotment afternoon

A morning downpour gave way suddenly to blue skies, and then a windy afternoon.  The fragmenting clouds here are taken from our allotment

Saltire in the sky

Perhaps it's because it's Summer, with time to cloud-watch, that I suddenly want to capture a tiny part of the ever-changing cloud activity every day.  While I'm aiming for a daily post, life will sometimes get in the way.  And while the skies will mostly be Scottish, there will be days when I'll be under other skies.

Two posts today to start with.  The first is a classic Saltire - the Scottish flag - from yesterday, just to get things going.  Aircraft are very obliging in forming the Scottish flag.   Today's cloudscape so far is unremitting grey, but I'm hopeful of a change later.  If that doesn't happen, I'll post what I see.
