Sky Watch Friday - Umbria


After a thunderstorm and heavy rain in Umbria, Italy, summer 2004.
The last clouds vanish, a rainbow stands at the horizon.

The flowers in the garden are dripping.

This is a gorgeous picture with the rainbow and the golden field. Yes one can see the flowers are all heavy from the previous down pour.

There is an 'umber' cast that lends this picture an atmosphere of heat. A magical scene.
