Always Back to the Rain

Torrential rain this morning. Really not very good for taking photos and these were all shot from the shelter of the car. And of course it was pretty dark too, but the cormorants didn’t seem to mind.

Later in the day the sun finally emerged.

And so did a rat 😉


Things look just a little brighter for next week.

    That rainbow is a nice catch, along with the old walls of the church. Nice one!

      Darko, thanks! I wish I’d had a short lens with me though.
