Moonbow.

Laying in bed last night hearing the rain hammering on the roof and skylights trying to read.
I  decided to make a cup of tea it was late almost midnight.
On returning with my cuppa I opened the velux blind to gaze at the rain just to see how bad it was outside the wind was howling too.
I actually had to take a double take.
I have never even heard of them till I googled it after my experience.
There it was in all its magnificence, I was actually in awe of its beauty.


It had a luminescence about it, silvery white in colour I could just about make out some of the colours.


A Moonbow !


Well I scampered back down the stairs and grabbed my camera.
I CLICKED away and then checked hmmm nothing. I opened the velux window to be met by wind and rain hitting me hard in the face. Determinedly I clicked away again, sadly again no amazing picture captured.
Ok so maybe Andy is right I need to read my camera manual.
I had no idea how to take the shot to capture it.
Apparently I needed to do a long exposure.
So unfortunately I have no amazing photo to add to the blog :-(


I closed the velux window warmed my hands on my cup of tea and just gazed at it.
The low cloud blocked it for a while but for about 45mins I just gazed.


Have you ever seen a Moonbow ?
