SkyWatch Friday - After the Rainbow

Sometimes you miss something and find something else.


A few days ago I dashed outside to try to capture a rainbow that had formed behind our house.  As I was getting into a position where I could get a decent composition I could see it fading – it’s a rather sad thing to watch a rainbow die!
I turned round to walk back home and found I was looking into this sky.  I rather feel this made up for my lost rainbow.  Or, to look it another way, this was the pot of gold at the rainbows end!
You can find more skies at SkyWatch Friday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking on the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the page.
Enjoy the skies.

Glorious skies, absolutely love the first shot with the silhouettes of trees. So often we regret missing something, only to turn around and be presented with something even better. I had the reverse experience. Sad at not getting anything, the dog and I turned for home and were greeted with spectacular light and growing rainbows. Will probably post them next week if I can manage.
