Welcome, rain.

OK, we needed some rain, although to say "welcome" is perhaps a wee bit over the top...

Yesterday [3rd January] was a little breezy but mostly very wet with low cloud, as the following pictures should demonstrate. Even the final picture, where it has cleared up somewhat is still wet. A few hours later it was windier and wetter again :-(

It might be the angle, but this Jetstar A320 reverse thrust appears to be throwing up a lot of water :-)

Nice big rooster tail on this one :-)

Later this afternoon and it's not raining as hard, but there's still plenty of water around...

Thank you! It wasn't that difficult actually - there was still plenty of light around, but yeah, they worked out well :-)

Oh well, off to work tomorrow!
