Sunshine through the rain

I took this the other day on the way to work. It was like the rainbow was showing the clouds it wouldn't be beaten, despite their strangling, their darkness. The sun was shining on through the rain. Simon 😀

Standing atop the mountain

I never took this picture, but I have stood in more or less this same place, Catbells near Keswick in the Lake District is only a small mountain but it's a great little one. It can be walked up in a few hours without breaking much of a sweat and it yields some amazing views... Continue Reading →
