Somewhere over Mill Road…

I usually take my camera everywhere I go (much to the dismay of some of my friends – who I’ve managed to take some rather ‘surprised’ pics of over the years) but a few weeks ago I realised moments after leaving the house that I didn’t have it on me. Even though logic told me that nothing too exciting was likely to happen on my three minute round trip to buy a pint of milk at the local shop, for some reason I felt compelled to go back and get it – just in case. I was very thankful I did go back, as just moments later a beautiful rainbow appeared over Mill Road!

Lots of people stopped in the street to take pictures and people came out of the Earl of Beaconsfield, Billy’s and the sushi bar to see exactly what it was that I and others were pointing to in the sky. From where I was stood it looked like the rainbow was emanating from the roof of Limoncello and looked so beautiful.

As I looked behind the Beaconsfield I saw another rainbow appearing over the rooftops and then a few moments later a third one appeared to the south of Mill Road. I had never seen more than one rainbow at a time before, it looked amazing. By this point it was raining heavily, but in my quest to get a decent photo I decided to stick it out for a few more minutes.

So I now make absolutely sure I’ve got my camera with me before leaving the house – just in case. Which reminds me – I’ve managed to capture a few nice sunsets recently, but more on that another time…

Sunset on Mill Road… Part 2

A couple of weeks ago I posted some of the sunset pictures I had taken around
Mill Road over the last few months. My pics turned out to be very popular and so, as promised, here are some more for your viewing pleasure. All these have been taken this month, and from various points along Mill Road and just off it. Each night seems to bring a different sunset and different colours, and no two sunsets are ever the same – well, at least that’s my excuse for taking so many pictures of them!

Sunset on Mill Road…

There are some pretty amazing sky views to be seen around Mill Road and I thought I’d share some of the photos I’ve taken over the last few months. Although they’re not very popular these days – except seemingly at weddings (oh and sometimes underwater!) – I had actually been using disposable cameras (eek!) as my staple for many years. However, I was given a shiny new Nikon Coolpix camera as a present last Christmas and all these pictures were taken on it. Those of you that know me may know that I have a particular penchant for sunsets (!). Here are some pictures of, well, mostly sunsets…
