There can only be rainbows with inclement weather – a great irony and an even greater metaphor.

Coming out of port early this morning – my birthday -I was greeted by bitter winds, heavy clouds and cold rain, but as the light slowly rose over the horizon so did the birth of a magical morning.

Below are a few images from this morning and the last few days of visual joy born from nasty weather.
