    Looks a tad yellow to me this caulicloud! Loving the blue sky behind though 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      A January sky too! I think the yellowness is simply due to the post-processing I did to bring out the cloud details. And you do get yellowish caulis 😀

        🙂 🙂
        Which program do you use for editing? Have a look if you can find a slider or a button for the white balance.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Thanks Dina. The original has quite a dark side, which is very grey. I cropped this to make the square and then used Nix Color Efex to bring out the detail. Not sure what I used that gave it the yellowish tinge, but I quite like that compared to the grey! Have had a try using the white balance and the only difference is that the right-hand edge remains grey.

    “Cauliflower sky”: I would never have thought of that descriptive term, but it is very apt.
    Have a great weekend,

    1. Heyjude says:

      Thanks Pit – we have a great view of the sky from our house and it is ever changing! We are due a rather cold weekend, but unlike some of the country, no snow here 🙂 Enjoy yours in the run up to Christmas.

      1. Pit says:

        We had some snow – just a sprinkle – here last night, but with rising temperatures, it’s gone now. It still was lovely.
        It won’t be freezing any more, but still great weather, with fairly cold temps, and bright sunshine.
        Enjoy your pre-Christmas time, too,

        1. Heyjude says:

          I don’t really celebrate Christmas any more unless with the grandchildren. We are having a very quiet one this year 🙂

        2. Pit says:

          Here it looks like a quiet one, too, with just Mary and me.

    Lovely! I find this one quite uplifting 🙂 🙂 And you’ve given me a desire for cauliflower cheese.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I LOVE cauliflower cheese. AND I have a cauliflower in the fridge…

      1. Pit says:

        Cauliflower – plain: yes, cheese: I don’t think so.

        1. Heyjude says:

          No? Lovely crunchy cauli (and broccoli sometimes) in a creamy cheesy sauce with crisp bacon and grilled tomatoes on top? My favourite cheap meal.

        2. Pit says:

          Oh! Now that sounds totally different from what I had imagined. I think I would like that a lot. Thx for the recipe. I might try that.
          Have a great eekend,

      2. Me too: although baked with cranberries is good too.

        1. Heyjude says:

          Really? I got a lovely cranberry recipe for a sauce / gravy from someone on WP but I’m not sure about combining them with cauliflower cheese. Won’t it turn pink? And look a bit weird?

        2. Not with cheese, or white sauce. Just bake and add cranberries.

        3. Heyjude says:

          Oh, OK, Silly me… 😀

  4. What a beautiful square sky! 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      I hadn’t realised until Becky’s challenge just how many sky scenes I have!

  5. The colour of the sky is what gets me. I don’t join challenges, but i’m Inspired by them. I have “5 minutes with a morning sky” in my RegularRandom queue, and I’m sure I wouldn’t have thought of it without this series. I’m a vampitre.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I try not to get sucked into too many challenges, but to use them as an inspiration. Sometimes I already have a post which fits the brief and sometimes, in the case of flowers and skies, I DO get sucked in…

    I’ve got my hand up for cauliflower cheese too… I like the yellowish tinge it brings out the blue of the sky.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Well I know what to cook if we all get together 🙂

      1. pommepal says:

        I wish we could…

        1. Heyjude says:

          You never know. Son trying to get a position with Virgin Australia (he was recently made redundant) which means he may be moving to Brisbane. I’ll keep you posted!

        2. pommepal says:

          Oh I will keep my fingers tightly crossed🤞

  8. Cauliflower with cheese sauce. 😀
