Weekly Weather: Night

This is the final selection in the 2nd round of Weekly Weather for 2017. I have used an atlas for this round of collages. My plan is to bind them together and hope to do it sometime soon. The first round of Weekly Weather for 2018 will start next week and I’m going to do something different – still collages but a different size.

This last topic is Night (the period of darkness in each twenty-four hours; the time from sunset to sunrise).

Weekly Weather: Humid

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

It’s now close to the end of the year and I’ve begun thinking about binding these pages. I’ll keep you posted as to my progress!

This week’s topic is Humid (containing or characterized by perceptible moisture especially to the point of being oppressive).

Weekly Weather: Sun

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Sun (the star that is the central body of the solar system, around which the planets revolve and from which they receive light and heat: its mean distance from the earth is about 93 million miles (150 million km), its diameter about 864,000 miles (1.4 million km), and its mass about 330,000 times that of the earth; its period of surface rotation is about 26 days at its equator but longer at higher latitudes.)

This year I went with SUNflowers! I found so many images I couldn’t resist.

However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This week’s topic is Snow (atmospheric water vapor frozen into ice crystals and falling in light white flakes or lying on the ground as a white layer).

Weekly Weather: Hurricane

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This weeks topic is Hurricane (is a rapidly rotating storm system characterized by a low-pressure center, a closed low-level atmospheric circulation, strong winds, and a spiral arrangement of thunderstorms that produce heavy rain. Depending on its location and strength, a tropical cyclone is referred to by names such as hurricane , typhoon, tropical storm, cyclonic storm, tropical depression, and simply cyclone. A hurricane is a storm that occurs in the Atlantic Ocean and northeastern Pacific Ocean, a typhoon occurs in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, and a cyclone occurs in the south Pacific or Indian Ocean.)

Because hurricanes happen primarily in the tropics, I chose a lot of palm tree scenes – with a few stormy seas thrown into the mix. A couple of upside-down sailboats and waves crashing over some birdhouses remind me that even as I live in a coastal area, every year without a hurricane means another sigh of relief of not having to evacuate and/or worry about flooding. Not so with my sister whose house has been flooded due to a storm.
