Well if it's like today. Only took one picture when it started to rain just after 10:30am. Gave up at 14:30pm.  :'(

I don't think I will be getting a shot in this week - I had a little operation to have a ganglion removed from my hand and now it is trussed up in a banage like a boxer. It also hurts like crazy :D

Ouch.  Irv, hope it stops hurting real soon. 

A bottle of JD usually helps with the pain.  :beer:  Also, aren't you suppose to whack it with a bible?  ( the ganglion I mean).  :knuppel2:

Certainly no sunshine breaking through for a rainbow here today - but managed this in between the showers.



Hope the hand is sorted and you are back on track quickly Irv.

I had been hoping for big dark looming skies and possibly a rainbow as well but all there has been this weekend is cold winds, overcast skies and now lots of miserable rain.  So I nipped into the garden this morning and quickly grabbed one of the bird bath.  I even had to use flash as there was not enough light.  It was too wet to get any proper lights out (I say proper lights, I mean my one off camera flash) so I used the on camera flash, hence this is why the bird bath is looking startled, but at least it does not have red eye   :P  ;)



Got to say there are some brilliant shots already, I know it’s going to be a difficult week to choose who to vote for   :-\
