I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.

    Wow!! What a combination of utter delight and beauty ~ and sheer concern of a large approaching storm….
    I love the clarity and colours to this Phil ~ not the least being the beautiful rainbow end peeking out there …
    I would imagine it is there in its entirety ~ hidden behind the clouds.
    Such a wonderful and timely capture!!!!

    Quite a dramatic sky Phil. I love the little bit of rainbow beneath the cloud.
