Dawning Storm

Kalamata, Greece

Caption: The storm held off and I managed to walk the dogs without getting drenched. As we neared home I noticed that the rainbow had become more prominent and couldn't resist the opportunity of snapping it.

Mr Alan, since 14 September 2009 I have as a background on all of PCs that extraordinary photo of the storm.
Now I am thinking very seriously of replacing it but with which one of these 3 photos...
You caused me a big...big trouble and headache!!!!

Many thanks for all the kind comments. I am extremely fortunate to live in such a beautiful place as Southern Greece. It makes me feel almost as though I am cheating when I take pictures. Debra, my mother also loved rainbows. Alan

About Granddad

Granddad

We are English, (except our dogs, who are definitely very Greek, having been abandoned strays who took us in out of the kindness of their hearts). We retired to Greece in 2003 to escape the phoney political correctness endemic throughout the Anglo-Saxon world and to mix with some real people again. We live in the Exo-Mani in the extreme South of the Peloponnesus, where the sea and countryside are beautiful and the weather is also less political (i.e. they don't tax sunshine yet). The site provides an opportunity for us to bore the whole world with our snapshots and for which we are duly grateful.
