How nice to wake up to the sounds and smell of rain in Fremantle this morning, and getting a free car wash.

Will we finally see some rain in Fremantle today and tomorrow after a rainless April?

There are some promising clouds this morning as the photos I took at the South Mole at 6.45am show.

A VERY WET FREMANTLE SUMMER

Posted in fremantle, rain, summer, weather by freoview on February 11, 2017

 

wet-one

 

This has been the strangest summer in Fremantle I have experienced. Wet, cold and only a couple of days near 40 degrees so far.

More heavy rain last night woke me up and there is more to come. The Manning Park Market this morning has been cancelled and it does not look too good for outdoor concerts and markets over the weekend, so make sure to check out if they are going ahead before you leave home.

The most disappointing thing for me is that most of all that beautiful rain in a city environment is wasted and runs down into the ocean because of the lack of rainwater catchment. I so wished the government would make it compulsory to install rainwater tanks at every new building because it would help the depletion of our dams.

I took this photo at 5 pm in High Street near the Roundhouse yesterday. Rain on the car windscreen created the mood.

WHAT A START OF THE YEAR JANUARY WAS!

re-1

 

It is the last day of the first month of the new year and what a month it has been. It was the wettest January since 2010 and we had the hottest Australia Day since 1979.

We also had the most controversial Australia Day ever in Fremantle and the most inspiring Nyoongar smoking ceremony and One Day in Freo concert.

And we are witnessing one of the most distressing demolitions of pristine nature at the Beeliar Wetlands.

So here some golden oldies of rain to remind us all that we live in a unique place here in Freo!

RAIN CAME BACK TO FREMANTLE

There were some very black clouds over Fremantle Port early this morning and there have been a few good showers already, so now hoping it will clear up for the Little Italy by the Sea festival that starts at midday at Bathers Beach today.

I took this photo at 6.30 am.

PAINTERLY RAIN PHOTOS OF VICTORIA QUAY

I had to get up early to let a family function into the Roundhouse at 6.45 this morning, and as I am never late I was far too early and already at Victoria Quay at 6 am, just when a heavy shower came through.

These impressionist and painterly photos were created by the rain water on the windscreen of my car.

AWFUL WET AND COLD FREO SEPTEMBER

It’s raining and cold and people being miserable about it in good old Freo, including friends visiting from Lismore.

Took this photo in Henry Street just after catching up with the NSW folk at the Moore&Moore cafe.

I am ready for nice warm and dry weather!

ARTY FREO RAIN PHOTO

The rain and cold returned to Fremantle today after a gorgeous warm day yesterday, so I am not very happy. I am longing for summer, heat and sunshine!

I took this arty photo from upstairs Cicerello’s this morning at the launch of the new Freo Segway tours.

PERTH RAINY WINTER SKYLINE

Posted in fremantle, perth, photography, rain, western australia, winter by freoview on August 8, 2016

perth winter

 

It has been wet, cold and miserable in Fremantle and I am not enjoying this winter, so I rarely ventured out on the weekend and became a couch potato.

But this morning I needed a change of scenery and fresh air, so here a photo I took around 10 am of the Perth skyline form the Melville foreshore.

It shows what a sook softy I am as I shot it from inside my car through the windscreen. ; >)
