A Double Rainbow


It was about 20 minutes before sunset when I heard the rain on the roof next door. "It's raining," I said, clicking away on the keyboard.

The Husband shifted in his seat behind me. "The sun is out," he said. "There must be a rainbow somewhere."

The vertical blinds rustled. "It's right outside!"

"Everyone's getting their camera. Click, click," I said as I crossed the room, thinking about the growing number of people suddenly sharing their photos of our town on a couple of local Facebook groups. I peeked through the slats. "I'm getting my camera."

The Husband followed me down the stairs and out the door. We were greeted by a brilliant rainbow.

"Look, look! Another rainbow!" I said, clicking away.

Two rainbows. A gentle rain. The sun setting. What more could we ask for?

Some  clouds cleared beneath the rainbow. "The moon!"

    1. I took a couple shots of the second rainbow but it came out too washed out. Oh well. I got to see it though. Good enough for me. :-)

  5. I like rainbows - who doesn't - and I'm happy we live on a hill and having some rooms with a view to the valley, where we had a lot of rainbows last summer. So nice! I like your picture a lot, the tree is also great!
