SkyWatch Friday - Rainbows.


These pictures were taken a while ago, but I never posted them.  Given that the images contain beauty, light and darkness they seem appropriate for this week.
This has been a difficult week – my wife’s mum died yesterday after a short illness. 

“and what good is cancer in April
why no good, no good at all”
Lou Reed.



I suppose I should have tried to stop the big drops of rain falling on the lens, but I don’t think I noticed them at the time!
Enjoy the skies from around the world.

Cancer is no good in April o, as for me, in February or any other month of the year. Deepest sympathy to your wife and all the family.

Such superbly beautiful captures at such a sad time . . .

Deepest sympathy to you all in the loss of your mother (mil) and grandmother. It's a difficult time.

Rainbow bridges are a good symbol to think of right now.
