’I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.

Genesis 9:13

Photography © Anastasia Webster-Hawes, 2010

An avid photographer, both still and moving, since I was 10 years old, I later discovered and developed a particular love of macro, which is one of my main genres. More recently, however, my repertoire has broadened to include stained glass windows and particularly the stunning beauty of outback New South Wales and South Australia.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of the Creation, captured and presented here for you.

  • Hi Gail…thank you so much my friend!! It’s interesting about rainbows now with all the wet weather….God’s gift and promise of renewal…almost the opposite of the original!!

    How perfect!!!! You can’t ask for a better blessing than this!! God is so good to us! Love this shot Jan, beautiful, really beautiful!!!!

  • Hello there Julie!! So nice to see you…Thank you for your lovely words and generous praise. I agree it is a beautiful shot, which is why I have the permission of the photographer, (as I have put in the description), to display it here!! She’s on the staff (ordained) at the church and just happened to be there when this stunning, partly double, rainbow appeared overhead, framing the church so precisely and dramatically, so she raced out to capture it…I also shot the same rainbow, but from our home quite a few kilometres away, where we only had a tiny portion of the rainbow…I’m so pleased you like it…and yes, God is good to us!! (Just would like to see his road map sometimes! lol! )..xxxx

    I know how you feel about that road map Jan!! I also would like to be privy to that information, but as I am learning (on a daily basis) God does things on Gods time, and all we can do is accept it, and Him! I think that they key to any good relationship is acceptance, I know God has accepted me (with all my flaws) and now I must trust that He will do what is best for me. I am so blessed to have a friend like you in my life!! Even if you are thousands of miles away!!!

    Lots of love to you!

  • Hi Julie! Yes we’re definitely on the same page here…see bubblemail (which I will now write and send)

    Excellent capture! Congratulations on your feature!

  • Thank you for the congratulations on the feature Marie…I only wish it was my photo! lol! But hopefully this will encourage the photographer whose comment was that she ‘just’ took it with her little camera…

    Terrific Capture!!!

  • Many thanks Kim….I’ll have to let my friend, the photographer, know!! She’ll be totally stunned. And I hope encouraged. By the way, I agree with your assessment of the shot. Maybe she’ll realise just how good it is when other people like you say it!!

    BEAUTIFUL…Love God promise in the sky hugggggggggggz

  • awww! Shucks!!! Yes, I love the sign of the promise held high for all to see. And those who don’t know of God’s promise(s) still find it a source of hope!! Isn’t that wonderful. God’s gift of hope is for all, whether individuals know it or not…!! We have an awesome God!!! (oh and I’m NOT the photographer…Annastasia Webster-Hawes, a friend of mine and minister/anglican priest took the photo with her little rather basic camera! Hopefully she’ll be thrilled at your comment ~ and others’!..xxxOo

    So awsome, love the rainbow it really makes the image :)

  • Many thanks Tyler…I wish i could claim it as mine and receive you comment, but I will pass it on to a friend of mine who is the photographer!!
    She’ll be thrilled I’m sure, although quite possibly somewhat bemused and surprised.

    Thank you so much for your great comment I’m glad you like it…there’s something special about rainbows i think…
