Over the rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
Da da da de de da da,
And it's stopped raining too!

Last night, just as I was about to pack it all in and trundle off to bed with a good book, the rain stopped, the sun shone on the distant fields and hills and a faint arc of colours appeared in the sky.

And sunrise this morning was just as lovely.

Time to stop hanging out of the window with the camera. 
Got up, got dressed, picked fruit, ate breakfast.
Didn't need to wear wellingtons and a sou'wester.
Oh, joy!


  1. Gorgeous photos - I love the way the trees are silhouetted against the dramatic sky.

  2. I love the times after the rain, when the earth feels so clean, and the sky is magestic. You captured it beautifully.

    The raspberries look delicious.


  3. Raspberries still? Lucky you.
    As for the weather - it won't last.

  4. It looks like there is a mist encircling those hills.
    Enchanting images.

  5. It was 98 in the shade two days ago.....and I loved it!
