Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Northern Light


Rainbows end-1

A scramble for the camera to capture just a smear of a rainbow  that appeared on the horizon in the evening light. I was a bit perplexed when I put the camera to my eye and the rainbow vanished from the view finder; then I remembered I’d still got a polarising filter on the lens.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Beautiful. Just beautiful.

  2. Amazing! Thanks for sharing it.

  3. I can’t remember the last time that I saw a rainbow! xx

  4. What a coincidence – I was taking a picture of a rainbow last night as well – didn’t realise it was a double one til I viewed the picture later. Must put it on Flickr …

  5. Beautiful.

  6. I had to go find out about polarizing filters and one thing led to another and it occurred to me that I never said Great Rainbow! Not to mention that it looks as if it’s pouring down on the Grand Canyon of the North. Very mysterious cast it gives to the land. I like it.

  7. A full spectrum one at that. You don’t always see the violet end that well. Hope there’s a pot of goodies at the end of it!

  8. Beautiful – and much different from “normal” rainbows, I have seen….
