God's Promise

And God said: I am giving you a sign as evidence of my eternal covenant with you and all living creatures. I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is a sign of my permanent promise to you and all the earth. Genesis 9:12-13

These images were captured at the beginning of May from a hillside in the Drakensberg overlooking the Kwa Zulu Natal Midlands
