Dark Clouds

Dark Clouds

It is summer yes? I’m really not sure as for the past few days we’ve just seen dark clouds rolling in off the ocean and hitting the Byron Shire. There was some glimmers of sun over the weekend but those dark clouds full of rain and wind were filling the skys.

Two of our local Byron Bay photographers Kirra Cheers and Kirra Pendergast have both captured and given us their view of how they have seen the clouds roll in. How the ocean and wind moved around between the sun light that occasionally shined through.

The water and air temperature has risen so get out for a swim or surf and watch some dark clouds roll over head and pray for sun!
