Skywatch and Rainbows
Skywatch - somewhere over the rainbow as the song goes- rainbows hold a fascination for me - and I am sharing two of my favourite shots with you my blogging friends.
The first shot in my header picture was taken in Newquay Wales last summer - or Llareggub as it is called in Under Milkwood by Dylan Thomas - Dylan Thomas as it is told had a quirky sense of humour - if you reverse the spelling of Llareggub ! well say no more! maybe maybe not!
If you visit Newquay - you can follow the Dylan Thomas Trail - when you can visit places connected with him - his poetry and his stories.
I like this view - it is a busy little harbour and very colourful - the dolphins come in quite close to the harbour wall and during the summer months - a daily dolphin count is maintained by the local Dolphin Watch - you can view records and so forth in their office in the town
This view was taken walking down the cliffs into Newquay - I always think the houses look like little toy houses - sporting all the colourful paintwork
There are many walks to enjoy - from around the other side of the harbour -the lifeboat station can be seen - lots of activity there - where you can view the boats up close
Dusk is quite magical in Newquay - the sea birds calling - and the sounds of the little boats bobbing up and down in the harbour - the picture above was taken quite late - on a walk around the town
My other rainbow shot was taken from the boat between Oban and the Isle of Arran = the light was amazing - a painters paradise
