Rainbow in winter - Chapter 2

For mid-winter, we are having the most amazing weather. It has been in the 60's here (a regular heat wave for us!) so our mounds of snow are gone. This morning, as I went out the door for haircut-day, it was rainy and (relatively) warm.

Sorry to say, there are no great bargains to report... but the trip home (35 miles) was stunning. At 5:30, when I left the city, I noticed the western sky brightening. Within minutes, the rain became mist and this was the view as I drove east.

When I turned south, I got this shot of the western sky.

I'm sure the drivers behind me were muttering about the "stupid blogger snapping pictures" as I swerved between lanes, camera aimed left, right and up.

But that's OK. It was another memorable haircut-day.

I know that whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor anything taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before Him. Ecclesiastes 3:14

Oh yeah... these pictures? Completely as-is. No editing at all.
