The weather forecast for today was "Clearing Showers". When we hopped up this morning and looked out the kitchen window to the east it was fairly clear, so we thought they were a bit out of whack with the forecast. However, when I looked out the front of our house, to the west, it was a different story - grey, grey, grey.
Just as I left home to go to work the sun came out and as I drove off I noticed the lady training her horse in the paddock opposite our house was sitting taking a photo on her phone. I assumed it was just of the very dark sky with the sun on it, but no......there was a bright, double rainbow.
I pulled over to take some photos and got chatting to the lady on the horse. Before long another lady, who was walking her three dogs joined us to soak in the view.
The colours were so intense. That is Mount Panorama in the distance, under a shower of rain.
Fortunately, it stayed in place long enough for me to get out my phone and take a panorama photo. We don't often get rainbows like this.
The rainbow started to fade, the horsewoman went one way, the lady with her dogs went another and I continued on my way to work......and then it started to rain....but only for a little while. "Clearing Showers". Yes the weatherman got it right, as it ended up being a lovely fine day.
