Merry Christmas!
Posting a photo of snow would feel very wrong this year. Instead, have a rainbow that I snapped from the train on the way back from our mini-break in London.

We never travel on Christmas eve to avoid the last minute holiday rush, so this was taken on Wednesday.

The journey back was fine and we caught a slightly earlier train than originally planned, thus giving us a little more time in Shrewsbury to get a snack. The buffet has changed from a Pumpkin to a Starbucks and I'm not entirely sure it's an improvement, but they had food and hot drinks, so that was OK.

Since then the weather has been wet and totally overcast. I am just sooooo fed up of this constant rain, but at least we had a bit of reasonable weather in London.

Current Mood: full full

Thanks. I took 7 or 8 shots, most of which were blurred either due to the movement of the train or the fact that the phone-camera focused on the raindrops on the glass instead of the view, but I was pretty pleased with that one.

I've been enjoying your crane photos on Facebook, by the way.

Thanks. I'm enjoying having something visual to think about for a few minutes each day. I'd like to do something more varied than cranes, but they do serve to focus the gaze.
