Double RainbowsClick thumbnail to view full-size
It was not just any rainbow. It was a double rainbow and we could see both ends of it! My husband and I finished dinner at a nearby Mexican Restaurant and emerged to find the rain had stopped. As we drove down the tree covered road, we entered into an area that was more open to the early evening sky. We emerged from the trees to a sky colored with a magnificent rainbow. What an adventure! Usually I see partial rainbows, coming out of a cloud or disappearing into the atmosphere, no longer to be seen. This rainbow was different! We could see both ends of the rainbow, the whole thing! In addition, there was another rainbow running parallel to it and we could see where it began and ended too!
As we snapped these pictures of the rainbows, it seemed so close to us! The sky above us was colored in pink, the reflection of the rainbow! It seemed that the air was actually charged with the presence of the rainbow. I had never experienced a rainbow so closely! It appeared like a canopy over the area, a covering, a shelter from the rain that had previously manifested over our area! We had a rainbow tour, driving from street to street to get the best view! What an adventure!
My rainbow experience was very profound and memorable! My new iphone was a huge help in capturing the moment, as best a camera can! Even a great camera cannot quite capture a moment wet with the residual rain and a bright double rainbow coloring the very atmosphere around you!
Did you see it too?
