Beauty, Joy, Life, Nature, Photos, Rainbow

This morning I sat out the front of my house drinking a coffee as I do most mornings. We have had a good amount of rain in the past day and so I looked at the garden and thought I should pull out the weeds while the ground is soft. I watched some doves and crested pigeons in the garden. Then I looked up and noticed part of a pale rainbow betweeen the trees.

I popped inside, got my camera and walked across the road to get a better view of the rainbow. It wasn’t very bright so I wondered if it was worth taking some shots or if the rainbow wouldn’t show up. My camera is pretty basic. I figured it was worth giving it a go, nothing to lose with digital photography. I took a few pictures. A train came past and I got one shot of the train and rainbow. I wonder how many people on the train saw the rainbow.

Then I went inside to look at the pics on my laptop. They had worked out better than I expected. In a couple of shots I could see the vague image of a second rainbow which I had not seen when I was looking at the actual rainbow. I went back outside to try to get some more shots but the rainbow was gone.

This little incident made me think about life and rainbows. I came up with the following observations:

• If I had only focussed on the weeds I would never have seen the rainbow.

• How many rainbows do we miss because we are focussing on the ordinary or even negative aspects of life?

• It’s important to look at the whole scene, ‘the big picture’ so you don’t miss out on life’s joys.

• Nature provides amazing gifts for free.

• There is beauty all around us.

• Even on a dull grey day there can be amazing beauty and joy.

• When there is an opportunity, take it. Don’t procrastinate or the opportunity may be gone.

• Give things a shot even though success is not guaranteed.

When you wake in the morning you do not know what joys are waiting for you to experience. However, you have to look around and be open to the positive aspects of life so you don't miss them.
