Crazy light after the downpour.

 This was our weather all afternoon just after I put the washing out sort of overcast and light rain then the heavens opened and down it came but no thunder or lighting just rain we normally get all the bangs and whistlers with it in a summer storm so it's a bit unusual.
The beer fairy popped over to woolworths to get a few things we needed and he said there was a really great rainbow but I missed it but everything was cloaked in a rather wonderful light that I tried to capture on my camera.

 The washing had a final rinse some of it was a little bit protected under the tree but most of it is dripping wet.

There are no real shadows just a glow and dark and light blend in together.
 My kitchen leaked and so did the back room so a bit of mess to clean up.


  1. I see what you mean about the light, extra special because the plants are wet.

  2. You mean that gorgeous light where the air itself appears to be golden yellow? I love that! And you do seem to have caught it a bit with your camera, your garden looks lovely because of the glow. Yikes on your leaky kitchen, hope the clean up didn't take too long and nothing was damaged by the water. You'll have to get the beer fairy up on the roof or wherever the leak is from.

  3. I love it. We got three inches in three hours yesterday afternoon. And our kitchen leaked too. Not much, but it leaked.
    And today everything has been freshened up.
    I do love rain. And your garden.

  4. wow... that light is lovely Merle....I love the look of a wet garden.... great photos...
    too bad you missed the rainbow... maybe the Beer Fairy should carry a camera when he goes to Woolworths in future...
