Heavy rain ruins festive spirit by fueast

Heavy rain ruins festive spirit

This was the headline on the BBC radio news this morning. Still this woman's umbrella has taken its chance to glow.
Sorry about the slowness in catching up at the moment. Enjoying a fair bit of festive socialising. Even in the rain.
More festive spirit in extras:

Oh pish! I never let the media (or anyone) tell me what my mood should be. We can all be as festive as we choose to be. :-)

Amazing timing on this shot. What are the odds that you would be in that position right as someone with a clear, 'glowing' umbrella came walking along?
The Photo gods were smiling on you.

trust the media to go crazy with the doom and gloom! But you caught the glow:) You've been on fire in the past few weeks mate with your lovely images of dry nice sunsets! Just my luck, when in London, the only day it rained was on my sister's wedding day when I could not be out there to take the National gallery! The bucket plan failed also :( sucks!
