Skywatch Friday: Second Rainbow


Last weekend saw strong sunlight shine on Gee Cross Fete leading to one of the best turnouts for years. You can find my collection of photographs from the day on Gee Cross Fete 2009.

Everything changed in the evening when torrential rain arrived and whilst Monday morning was fine, the afternoon and early evening saw tremendous thunder storms hitting the area. Later we saw this rainbow.

This is the second rainbow we've seen since moving into our new apartment. The first rainbow I posted on Ackworth Born, Gone West as a contribution to Skywatch Friday.

As Friday posts on Ackworth Born are presently devoted to a series of Benches and posts on Hyde DP this week are already scheduled, I thought I'd show this here.

  11. A rainbow is always a pleasure to watch - maybe the consolation one gets for enduring the rain.
