After the rain


Skywatch Friday my Favorite meme. This week we see the sun shining on the flooded River Thames at Wallingford

Thursday morning I was at a construction site and saw this Rainbow

 In the afternoon I saw another rainbow which was a complete double one unfortunately this was all I could get while stopped in traffic.

  3. All that beautiful water Bill ... can you send some down my way. Skywatch is also one of my favourite memes .... a wonderful platform to view and share sky captures from all corners of our world in varying moods and seasons.

  5. You take some wonderful photos Bill, though you are probably hoping the flooding will go away soon. I hope so too. Take good care of yourself and happy weekend to you.

  16. Your pics are wonderful Bill, thanks for swinging by my space earlier. Sending you wishes for a little warmth and dry air and hoping we get a little of your rain. Here is CA it is bone dry, warm and already fire season...several months early due to the drought.
