Bad news and good news


There was bad news and good news.... The bad news was that I had gone out in bright sunshine without an umbrella, leaving a line of washing happily drying in the sun.  Then, all of a sudden, the sky went black and there was a terrific downpour.  I got soaked and, by the time I got home, the laundry was wetter than it had been coming out of the washing machine! Ho hum...

The good news was: this gorgeous double rainbow appeared over Saltaire.  I wasn't in quite the best place to photograph it and it soon faded, but for a few moments it was glorious.  And I always think that rainbows are very good news indeed.

"When the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between me and all living beings on earth.  That is the sign of the promise which I am making to all living beings."  Genesis 9:16-17
