Hiall,

We are having a very wet day here in Cape Town - well with this wind it's raining on and off. But every couple of hours there is a beautiful rainbow. unfortunatly we missed the huge one strectching accross the whole mountain range.

My friend took this pic of a smaller raonbow while I was on the phone with a client - the rainbow only lasted 5 minutes before the wind brought more clouds and rain. The only prolem is thewindows- they are darkned and cannot be openedso light coming throughis not that good- but still a good attempt I say for us noobs

(Resized)

Thats' a nice one! I try to identify where your office islocated, but I guess I don't know the town well enough to get it right from that skyline. North of the airport?

Thanks.

There has been a rainbow almost everyday so I know how you feel - beautiful rainbow and no camera in sight :X. So now I bring my camera with to the office everyday

Hopefully there is another one today!

thats a good photo considering the window and all
you have a nice view outside
mountains, trees grass

it sure beats the view out of my window at work
a cyclone fence and a train marshalling yard
at best i get to see the wheat train go past
and look at all the artistic grafitti on the trucks

Hiya

Another quick one from the office through the darkened and dirty window.:|

The wind was cold as ice last night and now we know why - some fluffy white stuff on the peaks

Never a dull view from this window
