Somewhere Over The Rainbow...

18 comments


I’ve always been very fortunate to see some really wonderful Rainbows – but I’ve never had the camera close by! We had a heavy shower late yesterday afternoon, I managed to get the washing in… Then I looked out the front across the field saw a fab-u-lous Rainbow.

I had a suprise when I looked to the left… and saw the whole Rainbow! I was so close that I couldn’t get it in one shot!

Imagine my surprise when in the next photograph you can just about see the start of another rainbow!

Unfortunately, the colours haven’t come out as strong on the photographs, but here are a couple more…

Hope you’ve enjoyed looking at these piccies :o)

I'm a bit disappointed over the camera not capturing the colours that I saw...! But I think that's down to me, the photograher! I was trying to operate the camera, get as close to the hedge in the garden, as I could! (If I'd lost my footing it's at least a 10ft drop into the lane!) and all at the same time, trying to avoid the raindrops! :D

I've been so lucky to have seen two excellent rainbows in my life... One was when we were driving over to see my parents and Hubby and I saw the end of the Rainbow bouncing off the pavement!!! Sadly no crock of gold... Another one - and this is the best I've ever seen, was when I was leaving work. The offices I was based at were along side the River Medway, I saw not one but two Rainbows across the River! But better than that ~ the Rainbows crossed at their ends, thus making the top of a heart shape!!! Of course this was well before mobile 'phones or digital camera's - It was a truly spectacular sight - and it's very unlikely I'll ever see something like it ever again!!!

Thanks for all your lovely comments - glad you've enjoyed the pictures! :o)))
