My eyes are like pinpricks this morning, the wind did it's best to keep me awake all night as it howled round the house. I am always amazed at how little moves considering it sounds like Armageddon! What the wind has moved are the clouds. Except for a band of pure white across the top of Maroma the sky is clear. Maroma has a sprinkling of snow across it's ridge and the hillsides overnight have recovered some of their greenness.

Yesterday the clouds were far from photogenic, but the appearance of a rainbow as we neared the end of a dog walk was good enough reason to get the camera out.
