At times you really can tell that the next landmass south of us is Antarctica - and this was a week in point.
The wind pushed through patches of cloud and heavy driving rain. But between the rain you would sometimes get a flash of sunlight. I was walking to get a sandwich for lunch when the sun cut through the dark clouds. It seemed to catch this leafless tree as it waited for spring. Maybe it the contrast between the tree and the sky - but this seems a typical Melbourne winter scene. Rain, clouds, some sun and most things waiting for spring.
You can find more skies here at SkyWatch Friday.

Enjoy the skies.
