From Rain to a Beautiful Double Rainbow!

Early last evening the sky over head became dark and in looking out the window it appeared like the clouds were going to come down and touch the ground!   As the dark clouds moved on by, the grey skies opened and it just down poured; the ground had a good inch of standing rain within just minutes.  Then it appeared, the most beautiful double rainbow revealing not only one end but both ends.

Unfortunately it was so close I was unable to get the whole rainbow in one photo.  I do so have to get a wide angle lens for such occasions!

As always clicking on photos will bring up a larger view.

 Enjoy your day!

WOW! A first for us!

We just had the neatest thing happen – it all a sudden started raining real hard.  We scurried to close windows but as fast as we both were, the floors were soaked on the east side of the house.  Then we saw it!  A beautiful rainbow that actually started at the base of our pear trees in the backyard.  Won’t you know I could not take picture through the window because they had rain streaming down them.  I tried to open the sliding doors to snap a photo but the rain was blowing in so hard it was impossible.  A few seconds later it seemed to let up enough so I tried opening a window and quickly snapped a picture.  Within a few more seconds the rainbow disappeared into the sky.  I wish I could have gotten this picture when the rainbow was at its brightest and before it moved on down the field some!  This is certainly a first for both my husband and I!
Here is a picture I took yesterday – I thought the clouds were unusual with the bright spot!

Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day!
