Is this the result of Global warming? Last summer we hardly had any rain, this summer we hardly have any sunshine. What's it like in your part of the world?

We've had a lovely cool sunny spell the last few days. It won't last though. Soon the thunderstorms will come, and then the humidity.

I really like the way you've captured the feeling of rainy weather in this shot.
That is why it is really called Global Climate Change. Some places get drier and some wetter. Some warmer and some cooler.
Whatever it is, you got a nice shot.

Nice shot, I like the tones.

Here in New Jersey, the summer weather has been normal, but over the winter it barely snowed (We usually get at least a few feet of snow each year).

well Im told that in this part of italy, we should be having atleast 35plus C, however its been pouring like cats and dog, but at least its not so cold as it is in UK. So we all still have the global warming issues. I was told the winter was very light, the mountains are filled with dried out leaves, which should not be seen at this time of year.
Very nice take on our weather. Makes me wish i was back at my other country. As for the image, splendid.
It's been unseasonably cool here. We've only had a few hot summer days. We had a very cold Spring with snow in April. Generally I'd have to say this has been a colder year than I can remember. Last Fall and Early winter was warmer but after that it's been normal to below normal. We've had pretty much average rain although we did have a couple of really nasty late season Nor Easters.

I won't complain about the weather these past 4 or 5 days though. We've had the most incredibly gorgeous weather. Azure blue skies with white puffy clouds from time to time, cool temps, and pleasant breezes. In fact I have all my windows open this morning and find I need a sweatshirt! It's July and I'm wearing a sweatshirt! It was the same way yesterday and the day before. Saturday was warmer but still just gorgeous perfect summer weather. I hope it continues like this. Oh and I've only run my Air conditioner once this year so far.

This is a great photo. I hope the weather improves there soon. I think it just seems to go in cycles around the globe.
we're deifnitely having weird weather, especially since april was so hot...not complaining tohugh, i love the rain...great shot, ur lightwork adds so much mood...

best wishes

This certainly sums up the summer for me. It's the wettest I've ever known (maybe I should book a holiday somewhere sunny). Nice shot Jide.

Let's just say the weather's not the best here either. Flood in Central TX, now that's world news!
