Rainbows seen from our yard

>> Wednesday, December 2, 2009



We came back from our Wednesday night out for pizza to find this spectacular double rainbow across the valley from our home. From the foreground back: Jo's swing set, the new house we built, and the mobile home we lived in while we built it.

 

Wendi ran inside to get the good camera. Afraid the rainbow would go away before she could return, I snapped these shots with the camera phone. Besides the double rainbow, we got one full rainbow that arched across the sky. Absolutely amazing. It was so big I couldn't get the whole thing in one shot, so I took three:

 
 Left.
 

 Center.

 

Right.
 
It's a good thing I took these: the batteries in the house camera chose just that moment to run out of power. (Of course.) We still don't know if she got anything--we just put the camera batteries in the recharger. In the meantime, here are some more shots of the sky today, post winter rainstorm. No rainbows in these. These are back over the mountain, where the sun was setting.



 

 

Welcome to December in the mountains!

Great shots! It kind of looks like a magical, earthly shooting star...arcing from the ground then blazing back to where it came from.
