Rainbow Favourite

So this week we had some very unseasonal weather - who ever heard of temperatures in the 20's C in Melbourne in the middle of winter?

I was very happy as my current job has me working out in all kinds of weather and I enjoyed doing that a lot this week.

Yes, that is a big cloud and I could not resist taking the picture because I was standing in bright sunshine and the temperature was still around 19C extremely mild.

Most of the trees in this picture should have lost their leaves by now.

Before I finished work tonight I got to see this most amazing rainbow...

one end

and the other.

It felt like it was just there in front of me - though it is quite difficult to capture in photo's especially when in suburbia.

Looking the other way the sun was setting and creating the most amazing colours in the clouds.

Nature never ceases to surprise me its colour shows.

Hope your Friday was Fabulous!

If you want to see some more favourites pop over and visit the house of pyjamas.

I was so surprised at how mild the weather was in Melbourne when I was there. It almost made me want to move back, almost!
We saw a fabulous double rainbow there on Saturday.

Rainbows still appeal to us when we grow up don't they? I don't think you ever grow out of the wonder of them. Great photos!
