Word-of-Day-Challenge-Ephemeral

ephemeral

lasting for a very short time

My first ephemeral thoughts turned to rainbows.

They are never the same and

the pot of gold is so elusive.

 

 

The cattle may be the pot of gold in this shot.

 

 

This rainbow appeared as I was returning to my car.

I had time to grab a camera and take

three or four hand held shots

before this rainbow disappeared.

Barely two minutes in total.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Raindrops

~~~~~

In 2017 we had a downpour of big rain drops.

A slow shutter speed and…

…some editing and I think a reasonable result

has been achieved.

Raindrops on a car windscreen.

Raindrops caused this sight last week.

We have had a follow up rains,

160 points/40mm in total

between Wednesday night and Saturday morning.

Smiles everywhere.

 

It has been like finding that elusive pot of gold.

I have not…

sighted any…

rainbows for some time now.

 

So, unfortunately these are reposts.

Week 98

Fleeting

I called this series of shots

Two Minutes of Magic

While only one shot is reproduced here,

after being nearly blown off the pier

this two minutes made it all worthwhile.

Perhaps a bit longer than fleeting, however,

I have heard it said to produce oil naturally

takes perhaps millions of years

which is described as a blink of an eye

geographically speaking.

Therefore my two minutes of magic is definitely

fleeting.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Unusual

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Unusual

~~~~~

This year was the first year for a long time…that we had a heavy frost.  

Much of our lawn is now brown,

with some green roots.  

Weeds like this bent over for a few days

and now continue to thrive.


The first half decent photo I have taken of

Geelong before sunrise.

 

Same morning as above, straight out of the camera.  

I think the slow shutter speed (1/3 sec)

helped the red show through.


Last but not least, I have posted this previously.  

However it is unusual to see

a rainbow, in the west, as the sunrises.
