Autumn rainbow at sunrise
Sunday morning was definitely the calm before the storm. I'm not a morning person so was rather sleepily making a cup of tea at 8.30am on Sunday morning and thought the light outside looked interesting. Fortunately I had my camera to hand and took these photos, though they don't really capture the magic of the moment. I stood at the end of the drive watching the sun rise behind the Orphir hills and a double rainbow emerge over the Hoy Hills, stretching over to Stromness. I should have walked further up the road to get better shots, but I was in my pyjamas at the time and as it was Button was standing in the doorway yelling "Have you no *shame* woman!". I did get indoors before the shower of rain came though, and oooh that was one of the best cups of tea I've tasted!
The coos in the field opposite the house were clearly also somewhat bemused at seeing me in my pyjams...
