I hope you've sent #2 to Angie - that's a dead cert for tomorrow's weather. Cracking shot John!

Thanks Paul, actually hadn't thought of Angie, haven't sent any in recently, it was a lovely rainbow and for some reason the lowish sun produces a better one than earlier in the day. Now what was that address?

What a great week you've had over there. That's a wonderful  double rainbow  photo-so intense too. I assume Angie is your  regional TV weather girl .

Thanks John, yes Angie Phillips is one of the weather casters and in my opinion the best of the bunch. We have had a hectic week indeed and I almost drove over a hedge today with lack of sleep Roll Eyes

No, the hedge stepped out in front of you - maybe it was trying to commit suicide!

I agree with that,  Angie is the best, I'm a big fan of Daniel Corbet (hope I got the name correct) on the main BBC channel also, that's a man who knows his weather!

The cloud structure on that first image John is impressive, almost like a gust front.

LOl Brian, that's a good excuse, I must use that one myself. I was driving this evening and spotted a few pink anvils in the distance and nearly went into a hedge Smiley
