A Rainbow!



     "And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down.
      Without the rain, there would be no rainbow."
                                                                        
- Jerry Chin



The sun was shining brightly through my living room window, a few days ago, when I heard thunder booms and strong rain on the roof.  "Interesting,"  I thought, "you can't have rain AND bright sun at the same time without a rainbow!"

Instinctively, I grabbed my camera and my boyfriend and I ran out the front door.  It was sunny in my front yard, but as we rounded the corner into the backyard we saw the clouds and storm approaching and walked into the heavy rain.  Here is the rainbow we saw.   How lucky!  It's actually a double rainbow, but it's hard to tell on these photographs.  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekends!

  4. Val, you did good with the rainbow.  I can make out the double with no problem in most of the pictures.  Such a wonderful sight.  Did you try to find the end of the rainbow?

  12. Hey, I didn't leave you!  I'm storing up my responses for when my PC gets back up and running.  The day I went on vacation it crashed (in the AM) and my hubby couldn't fix it while I was gone (took me 2 min. to find the XP cd when I got home, but he can't see the forest through the trees, now he wants to do it himself -- so this could take a while!).  Keeping up via the library & will post my photo entries when I can.  Love the rainbow shots!!!  Shana

  17. There is something so magical about a rainbow.  They are so temporary - gone as fast as the come and yet they leave an impact on our heart for a long time after we see one.  Thanks for sharing yours!    Kathy

  19. I enjoyed your rainbow photos which also interested me with a look at where you live.     I noticed that the large 'barn' type building has a gambrel design roof.    My cabin is a gambrel design with no vertical walls as the second steeper roof is my wall so the inside and outside two walls slant.    mark
