Needling

I was fortunate to have nice clouds for most of Friday when I spent a little bit of time out with the camera. A lot of time this year, particularly when I’ve gone away somewhere, I’ve not had the best of it and seem to have managed clear blue sky or rain and nothing much in between.

I remember learning about clouds in geography; we did those and volcanoes – not where countries are in the world as I had expected to learn. I don’t remember any information on clouds though, and so I have no idea what kinds of clouds these are. A quick search on Google indicates they may be Cumulus and Stratus.

Today it’s back to the usual blanket of grey.

Should anyone be curious to know, the building rudely poking up in the middle is the Shard.

Quick query, when you pinpoint a location of an image you have taken on a map, do you put the pin in where you were stood when taking the image, or where the image subject is? i.e. for this image, should I have placed the map at St Paul’s Cathedral where I was stood, or the Shard, which is the identifiable location in the image?
