Last Wednesday, when storm clouds were clearing out, a double rainbow appeared in the late afternoon. Rozann Grunig captured it soaring over woods and into the Pacific Ocean.
Paul Brewer also photographed it, albeit from a different location.
Today we have blue skies. Tomorrow the last in a series of storms is expected in the afternoon. 75.53 inches have fallen this season at our place in Anchor Bay. A "normal" rainfall year is 50 inches. Bye, bye drought!
Thanks to Rozann and Paul for allowing me to share their rainbow photos with you here.
On Valentine's Day, Paul Brewer photographed this lovely scene.
The colors of sunrises are so fleeting, but can be so very beautiful.
A storm is approaching the coast. Yesterday we had sunny, warm weather, a balm after all the rain. But we have a storm coming in late tonight. Saturday is predicted to be rainy. Well, it's still winter, after all!
Craig Tooley was out on Friday the 13th, photographing the Wolf Moon. I love this first photo of the full moon framed by trees.
Craig did some research on why the first full moon in January is called a Wolf Moon. The Farmer's Almanac states: "Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the wolf packs howled hungrily outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January's full Moon."
Paul Brewer also captured a lovely photo of this moon, but just before it set into a fog bank.

Paul Brewer is back on the Mendonoma Coast from his holiday travels. He came back just in time to photograph this morning's beautiful sunrise.
I photographed it too, though my view has trees in the way towards the south. The pinks and purples seen through the trees was dramatic too, and the ocean appeared a deep purple for a few minutes as you see in Paul's photo.
Sunrises are so fleeting. They are often the reward for getting up early, something I do regularly.
We are receiving lots of weather warnings in advance of several "juicy" storms. It will be an interesting seven to ten days of LOTS of rain. Here on the Mendonoma coast we are battening down the hatches!
