Picture This #291 ~ Rain, Rainbows Or Clouds

Many thanks to Heidi for hosting this week's challenge. A really good theme, with lots of possibilities. The number of entries the past couple of weeks has been fairly low, so let's see everyone posting something this week!!

Surprisingly, I have no shots of rainbows in my archive. Something I've never managed to capture well, so all my shots are rain or storm related.

1) Storm front approaching Amroth Bay, Wales.

2) Summer rain, Upton House Gardens, Dorset, England.

3) Storm clouds gather over the Brecon Beacons, Wales.

4) Rain on coastal wetlands, Dorset, England.

  1. wow wonderful shots love the first one great feeling comes through
    the rain in the 2nd d one is awesome came through really well

  2. Hi Mitch, a charming assortment of shots. I love the broodiness of the cloud pictures, especially the clouds over Wales, with the sun slipping through onto the land. The rain on the wetlands is wonderful, can almost hear the frogs and the sound of the drops. And just absolutely magnificent summer sunny rain picture in the garden, framed by the tree and the water pump. My favorite.

  3. Great shots Mitch. The first would be a good one for a horror film. Good catch on the rain in the second and those Welsh clouds are certainly raising. Nice wetlands, looks very interesting

  4. hi mitch cool pics , love the first with the storm approaching

  5. Hi Mitch! Very beautiful shots, as always....I smiled at the comment dropped by Pat, regarding the first... excellent choice of words... I like summer rain and the composition and colours are really pretty... Another awesome clouds shot in the third, while the wetlands under the rain look very interesting...
