Skywatch Friday - spring rainbow


A real cheer-me-up-after-a-long-day-at-the-office rainbow on my walk home from work yesterday. The chimney with the red bit at the top is that of the Lady Haig Poppy Factory - the red bit is a poppy.

After reading The Cloudspotter's Guide and becoming a proud member of the Cloud Appreciation Society, I know what I never noticed before - that the sky inside a rainbow is always lighter than the sky outside it.

More skies around the world are at Skywatch Friday.
