"Perched At Rainbows Crossing" by 

Birds perch on an old fence in the water at Swan Bay during a rainstorm, which produced a converging double rainbow that also reflected in the rain and waters of the bay. This was the second time it happened within about 40 minutes.

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”.
