Dark clouds over Perth

On Friday, my day off work, I was invited to lunch and a dip in the pool at Grace's house and we had a lovely couple of hours.
After leaving her house I went home to change and then onto the airport to pick up my husband arriving from Sydney. From there it was straight to another friend's house for what was a delicious dinner.

The usual blue skies had darkened although you could still see the sun, but on the way to our friend who lives in the suburb of South Perth I spotted a huge rainbow and as I was driving I had to ask my husband to take a photo for me.




Driving along Mill Point Road close to my friend's house I spotted the city on the other side of the Swan River and the dark sky was casting this shiny glow on the buildings  so I had to first drive a couple of streets down to the foreshore to take a couple of pictures.
The photos don't really do it justice, but believe me the city looked amazing!

Hope you're having a great weekend.

    1. Quite true Christine, I have loads of photos with the sun reflecting on the buildings but never one where the dark skies cast that glow on them.

  8. The city buildings look great. Did your husband grumble about the diversion to take photos?

    1. Not really Andrew, it was just 2 or 3 blocks away from where we were going. He just complains that I take photos of everything...

  10. That was a fabulous rainbow and great shots, too.

    The skyline with the darkening clouds was so very atmospheric and modern looking. It also looked like a fresh city to live in, too. You are very lucky. I hope you get to stay there.
