Friday’s Photo Challenge

This week I thought I was going to have to think outside the box with a colourful photo of  embroidery threads as the theme is ‘rainbows’.

This was my first thought…

I actually won a prize at the local show with this photograph!

I love seeing rainbows, there’s just something about their fleeting appearance and that hope of better things to come. I also love the way how ever many you see, and lets face it we’ve probably seen hundreds in our lifetime, you automatically say (or at least think) ‘Ooh look, a rainbow!!’…or is that just me!

The problem I have today is that I can’t find a decent photo of a rainbow! I have however found a photo that has the merest glimmer of a rainbow. I remember the day well as it was the final day of our walking holiday last September. We were meant to be walking thirteen miles back to Keswick but we chickened out and took a glorious bus ride along the Honister pass back to Keswick instead. Later, after a good walk along the shores of Derwentwater we decided to take the scenic route back via the launch. The black clouds gathered but the photo shows that classic mix of rain clouds, blue skies and sunshine…and right in the middle, just above that cloud that looks a bit like a jigsaw piece, is just a glimmer of a rainbow!

The Friday photo challenge is organised by Postcard from Gibraltar, do follow the link and hopefully someone has a photo of a full rainbow!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!

    I can lend you a rainbow, if you like? Or is that cheating? I don’t know how it works. Link’s below, in case you’d like to borrow it.

  2. Congratulations on your prize for the photo! A rainbow of crafty things has got to be the best kind I reckon!!

    With or without rainbow, it’s a stunning photo over the lake. Has it become an embroidery yet?
