This post and video clip from my fellow Co. Waterford blogger, Clare Scott, has truly warmed my heart. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Pure talent!


I have been a little busy to post anything recently but I have been playing with my camera for some college projects. In recent years May seems to have swapped personalities with April and there has been a lot of excellent cloud action, for us cloud nerds, and lots of opportunity for doing time lapse videos.

Here is a short time lapse movie of the showers that have swept the Waterford coast this month. I caught a few rainbows as well as some amazing clouds and a shower of hailstones. Our SAR chopper is in there ever so briefly too but I think you’ll have to look very hard (around 2:18) There are even, briefly, some mammatus clouds (cloud nerds). Some people yearn for clear blue skies and it’s true the sunshine is welcome but day in day out?I think that would be sort of dull wouldn’t it…?

  1. Just noticed the video doesn’t seem to play on the reblog, not for me anyway. Might be something to do with the file, not sure. It can still be seen by viewing original though..thanks again Jean 🙂
