A Word a Week: Rainbow

IMG_6636 (640x482)

I was just going through my reader and found that Sue has chosen the word ‘rainbow’ this week.

This photo was taken with my phone a couple of days after we had moved in to our new home.  Just before a massive thunderstorm.

Travel Theme : Arches

Sky arch (640x476)

Good morning from a warmer, sunnier Hastings.  I have already been out to take photos of my irises.  I just can’t get enough of them at the moment.  They looked beautiful in the early morning light.

This week Ailsa has asked us for arches.  I have only got one in bricks and mortar:

Arch 1 (497x640)

Which is part of the fence around my parents patio.

So I went with arches from the smoke trails of the planes doing the flyover at the Art Deco weekend in Napier this year.

and of course nature’s rainbow arch.

One Word Photo Challenge: Is there a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?

DSCF4526 (640x473)

Ok, this is a stretch on the prompt this week, which is gold.

I did try to take some photos more befitting this theme but the camera decided to strike.  So then I thought of these photos.  Last week after a particularly strong shower the sun came out and we had this amazing double rainbow. It was amazing that in one direction the sun was shining but behind the rainbow the clouds were dark and menacing.

It was one of the strongest rainbow and even on zoom the colours are still really defined.

So is there a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?  No, just great colours of the spectrum.

Cee’s Which Way Challenge Week 8


When I got up yesterday morning at 5.30 it was raining hard.  By 6.45 the rain had stopped and Hubby told me the sky was red so I grabbed the camera and raced outside.  Yes we had a red sunrise but we also had the most amazing rainbow I have ever seen.  It was so big I couldn’t even get it all on a wide open lens.  I was supposed to pick my son up but as soon as he saw the rainbow he knew that I wouldn’t be picking him up – it wasn’t raining so he walked home.  He also took photos with his cell phone.

A great way to start the day.

Here is Cee’s post to check out her wonderful challenge.
