The perfect ending…

For those of you who were wondering how the wonderful day of coolness & rain ended (see previous post)…

…Well as is often the case the sun broke through just at the right moment producing spectacular golden lighting across the valley & with it came a rather feint rainbow.

Now the rainbow was not perfect but if you combine that with a thunderstorm, the picture improves a little!

Even as the sun set the lighting was pretty dramatic.  The perfect end to the day & definitely worth the wait.
