Over the Rainbow ... Another Rainbow

The day was grey, and we had just tucked in to our evening supper. It was still raining when the sun came out, and The Hubby announced, "There's gotta be a rainbow."

We hustled out to see and were rewarded with not just a rainbow, but a double rainbow, a full half circle over the eastern woods.

With no wide-angle lens, and having to shoot from the shelter of the garage, I could only get part of it in the shot. I  wish you could have seen the whole thing. It really was spectacular - well worth letting dinner get cold.

Gemma, so true. I wish this one could have stayed. But then, their fleeting quality is part of the magic, isn't it.

Sylvia - All weekends are fabulous in my book. Hope yours is, too!

Scene - Thanks! I think I'm asking Santa for a wide-angle and/or a macro lens.

Magic - True confession time: They did look this bright to the eye, but I had to boost the photos a bit to render them accurately.

I think you got most of it-what a great shot and what a great treat to see a double rainbow AND photograph it! I've tried many times and have been short of success.
