Rainbow: Skywatch Friday

A place to enjoy skies and views from all around the globe. Skywatch is only as good as the people who post here. It is a “not for profit, not for awards” fun place to post and link from. Simply take a picture which includes the Sky, post that picture on your blog and then come here and put your preferred name and link in the relevant places. Try to visit others on the links, those at the beginning and the end.

RAINBOW in the sky.

This afternoon – about 17:30 it look like this from my front door.

 

 

Grateful to go out on cloudy & rainy days

I am very grateful for trains and busses that take people over 65 to places they won’t visit on their own.

The best is that between 9 am to 3 pm the trip is free!

I try to make a trip to Wellington city once a week now that the weather is clearing up.

Last week was very cold and cloudy.

This week the weather here in Upper Hutt was kind of clear.

Sorry to say, just before reaching Wellington station there was a heavy down pour .

It was dry during my stroll along the harbour.

I am so grateful that I could take some photos of the dark clouds

I am very grateful for the opportunity to take some special photos again.

I am grateful for having the talent to see the beauty around me and to photograph them.

I am grateful this week for an excellent report on my photo by my tutor!

What have you been grateful for this week?

ORANGE

Orange is the colour of saffron, pumpkins and apricots. It is between red and yellow on the spectrum of light, and in the traditionalcolour wheel used by painters. Its name is derived from the orange fruit.

In Europe and America, orange is commonly associated with amusement, the unconventional, extroverts, fire, activity, danger, taste and aroma, the autumn season, and Protestantism. In Asia, it is an important symbolic colour of Buddhism and Hinduism.[1]
