It rained. It poured!

It poured today, thundered even .
Trees bent, rain slashed sideways.
The world was violently alive,
Crowned in its own vibrant light.

Liquid Icicles

Rain bouncing like hail.

An Amazing rainbow visible from one end to the other.

End of the rainbow

Stoplight and Rainbow

Annie what wonderful photos and I can understand your wonder of this moment in nature - shown at its best I feel.

The photo of the stop light and the rainbow almost makes you feel we are being told to "stop" "look" and "watch" mother nature at work doing what she does best - show us the wonders of our beautiful world, to be greatful for this very moment!

lovely photos - and lovely words you have chosen to share it all with us.

Your friend Lee-ann
