I’m participating in the LetsBeWild.com Wild Weekly Photo Challenge! This week’s Challenge is: Weather.

I live in San Diego, in Southern California. I enjoy beautiful weather probably two thirds of the year. The baking heat of the summer is the bad part, but the skies can still be beautiful. On many days, the weather looks like this. Not a single cloud in the bright blue sky.

On a cloudy day, which is a rare occasion, the skies will look like this. You can still find plenty of blue sky even when the weather isn’t so great.

On a rainy day, which is even rarer than a cloudy day, things get wet, but they still look pretty. Here’s a wet California lemon enjoying the precious rain. Yep, it’s the one I’m featuring in my 2013 photo calendar, which is now set up for sale by the way (I haven’t launched it officially yet, but it’s coming…).

And of course, after the rain comes more sun. Things may still be a little wet, but the blue sky we enjoy on most days doesn’t like to miss a beat. This is Southern California weather for you in a nutshell!

    I may have to come back to this post when I’m staring at snow and gray skies this winter…

  2. Great challenge entries! Where did you take that first shot? Looks like a beautiful spot

  3. I love the first photo (blue, blue skies) and the close up shot of the wet California lemon.

      Thank you for your compliment, I’m glad you like my photos. It can be a challenge to show variety in weather when you live in Southern California, but I think this made a good representation of it.

      Thanks! I took some photos after the rain yesterday and I can’t wait to take a look at them. Some spots look just amazing to the naked eye so I hope my camera was able to capture that.

I'd love to hear what you think about my photos. Please leave your comments below.
