Everyday is a Sunlit Memory a forever keepsake of those special moments that take your breath away

A Storm is a Coming


Who knew when I was awoken early by a little boy dreaming loudly that I was in for such a treat … The sky was filled with beautiful clouds all in patterns reaching across the sky.  It was beautiful in the grey of the morning but the best was yet to come….

The glow of the coming sunrise brought a beautiful array of pink to the clouds above highlighting the front view of Rainbow Farm house this view is taken from the verandah looking across the paddocks through the windmill and watertank.


This tree usually only gets a look in later on in the year when the sun has moved back across to the left but the colour and clouds was right across the whole sky 360 degrees .. so nice to see it again in such glorious colour.


I thought that the sunrise could not get any better after all that amazing pink then up it came and shone it’s golden glow over those spectacular clouds and I was in awe.

Took so many images had a terrible time choosing which to keep.

It really made me feel so content and up on high .. had a fleeting thought I should of videoed this morning but I  would of missed all the images that stay forever and image them on your wall to wake up to everyday … for a full look at ALL the images head over to the January sunrise album on Rainbow Farm Photography’s Facebook Page … click HERE

About two hours after the sunrise the rain began … and it rained … and rained … and rained

I took myself and the rainbow farm kids out into it for a very special reason the only reason to go out in that weather ….

it was time to pay for my trip with my husband to Thailand and all its visual wonders. So Look out March the 3rd can’t wait.

It was so easy to get out there and pay for it although the rain soaked trip back to the car after having to park miles away because ever tourist (terrorist) was in town because of the rain .. my beautiful angel did a graceful dive to the ground pink faires umbrella in hand took skin off hand, elbow and knee and I got totally drenched having to calm her down and get her into the car.

She is fine this morning after being plastered from head to toe in band aids

The rain did not stop till late into the night was so nice to hear the rain running into the water tank … won’t have to buy water for a bit longer now.

So with the rain there was no sunset and no going out photographing anything.

A day off after such a beautiful sunrise was good and the land needed the drink everything looks so much healthier this morning.

The rain might be a hinderance but we must remember to think of all the wonders of nature it feeds and enjoy.

Living on Rainbow Farm with my two beautiful children and fur baby Billy in Busselton, Western Australia provides me with stunning sunrise and sunsets and the beauty of Australia's flora and fauna. I hope to bring just a little bit of inspiration, healing and lots of sunshine to your day.

  1. Great post Coralie! It’s a great reminder that without the clouds and the rain, we would miss out on the beauty that it creates!

    • specially the rainbows .. I am starting to miss my rainbows .. but I just got round to hanging the canvas I did up of the full rainbow on rainbow farm so now I get to see a rainbow everyday.. thank you heather for your support and comments love hearing from you : )

  2. Im amazed at how well you capture the mornings..

    It is a great thing to be able to wake up and see the beauty that we have just outside our back doors.. Living in a rural setting so makes one appreciate it when we travel to a larger town or the big cities..

    The rain was a welcome repease to most people, hopefully it has eased the pain of empty dams, having to cart water for stock and the bush will now start to revive and show us a wonder beyond of how it can be battered by the hot rays of the sun and the drying wind..

    • yes .. the country has gone crazy lately with floods in some parts and drought in the others we here at rainbow farm had to cart in water before summer even started this year hoping this rain gets us through now. thank you merley for taking the time to comment : )
