SkyWatch ~ Drive-by Shooting


I'm 700km from home and on the way here I popped off a few
at the sky as we sped along towards Melbourne.

On my side of the car I was accompanied by a lion? . . . a boar??


A little further along there was quite a bit going on in front
of that glorious blue backdrop


and then the fun started. The season of rainbows had arrives.


There were six different ones in all. Not quite as spectacular
as a trip we took a few years ago where we had 13!


The road, the railway line, the silo and the main attraction,
another rainbow!



I wish you all at least a rainbow or two, if not, enlarge mine
and enjoy.

I thank the diminished SkyWatch Team for keeping this meme going
against all odds.

  8. The clouds and the rainbow are marvelous. I think this is going to be the best Sky Watch Friday yet. The things I have seen are very encouraging and the photography is spot on. I really admire your photography skills and your critical eye for composition, lighting and texture.

  9. Arija, have I ever mentioned that your side of the planet has the most beautiful wide skies of them all? ;-)

    The second from the top is amazing, those clouds fanning out present a great show.

    Hugs,

    A MAN WHO LOOKED UP AT THE SKY

    A man who looked up at the sky
    Saw ravens and clouds flying by.
    He had to look up,
    The sky filled his cup—
    He’s my kind of sky-watching guy!

  16. You did a lot of shopping in Melbourne?

    Everyday, I invite Australia to my living room, watching Master Chef and my kitchen rule.

  20. Hi there - forgot that you had been tempted by The Prom. I am very keen to get back there - just to have a look around as much as anything else.

    Splendid road shots - like the last one with the grain silos.

    Cheers - SM
