Rainbow and Storms

I had a missed opportunity the other day. My mother and I went out yesterday evening right before a short storm we were about to have, we could see lighting in the distance. Well, my mother did tell me I should bring my camera just in case there were some good shoots while we were in town, however it was to be a quick trip so I said I'd wait till another time. It turns out I should of taken her wonderful advice, as usual. :) On our way home we stopped to get some gas and while we were there the sun came out while it was still raining and of course that usually means a rainbow!! :) It was a beautiful rainbow with beautiful bold colors and half of it was a double rainbow!!!!! Not only could we see the whole thing but also it was lighting in the distance which would of made a perfect picture!!! :-) But it was not to be, at least not that scene. However, when we arrived at home the rainbow was still in the sky so I was able to get a few pictures of it from our house! :) It just wasn't as clear. :) So, here  it is....

Today we also have had a lot of rain. :) Where we live it flash floods quite often, at least in the rainy season. Here are some pictures of our wonderful raging creek which dropped leaves, sticks, logs and such all over our freshly mowed yard. :) More work. :) However after the rain stopped for a bit, and the water went down, I took our dogs for a walk and got some after pictures. I also liked the way everything looked so green. The dark trees and the light green leaves I particularly enjoyed. :)

A little while after.... :) Amazing how the water grew and fell.... It flash flooded again soon after this picture. :)

Our road again. :)

Wow! I'd say you DID get a lot of rain! :) That rainbow is beautiful. I'm hoping one day I'll be able to take a rainbow picture too! You have such a good spot to take that picture! :)

Neat pictures. Not all of us will be at dance this week as Saturday is Marjolaines graduation. I think it will be fun to see you twice in June. I hope to dance with you or in the same group.
