And the dark clouds present……………….

We’ve had a fair amount of thunder today and the much needed rainfall has filled our three water butts  a treat.
Watching the clouds rolling across the sky and out to sea has been very relaxing in its way, and one thing I have come to recognise is the pre-rainbow sky.

The sky turns a purply gray and the rainbows that materialise are awesome in that most are doubles. Since we moved to Lincolnshire in 2007 (with a gap 2014 to 2017) we have never seen so many double rainbows, but here on the coast, they are stunning and bright.
The one this evening was no exception and we were out with the cameras snapping away before the rain hit again.

I got some lovely shots over the back of our house.
Can you see the second rainbow?

And the view from the front wasn’t too bad either

The trouble is they fade so fast.

Most of these were taken with the Nikon, but Hubby took some with the Canon. I think this is the best selection of double rainbows we’ve managed to capture.

Hope you enjoy the magic.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
