Rainbow after the Hailstorm

In the aftermath of the hailstorm was this gorgeous double rainbow.  It was as beautiful as the hailstorm was exciting and the sky before the storm, threatening.  I love rainbows, they are always a symbol of calm after the storm, hope after adversity……Rainbow

Hailstorm

While I was driving home from work yesterday afternoon, I noticed that the sky behind me was getting darker and darker and looked really threatening. About five minutes after I walked in the door, a really strong wind started blowing accompanied by firstly rain and then hailstones…………..so exciting that Eddie grabbed the camera and started snapping away at the garden. Here are some of the photos. Hailstones in the gardenHailstones

Underwater Picture for Louise

Closeup of underwater picture

After I had finished my Underwater postcard, one of the women from work wanted a larger version which she could frame. She and her husband are scuba divers, in fact her husband is an underwater photographer. I found the larger version quite hard to do because everything had to be on a larger scale. The finished picture measures 7 1/2 inches wide by 9 inches deep. It had a lot of glittery threads but although the scanner kill off the sparkle,  it shows the threads and stitching clearly. The second photo was taken by digital camera so it has captured more of the sparkle and  shows the silk paper backing behind the blue/green/turquoise dyed Tissuetex.Photo of the Underwater picture ready for framing.
