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…
