The Mother of All Rainbows

Holy moly!  I think this is the best rainbow I've ever seen here -- and we get quite a few.
The pot of gold is evidently in the cemetery adjoining our farm.  Hmmm...

What a treat!
All the way from here to there...
And then it was gone.

Wow! That's a beauty. Please tell me you didn't go digging in the cemetery for that pot of gold.

That really was quite spectacular! I have never seen a more beautiful rainbow.

Victoria said...

Fantastic! That's the most well-defined rainbow I've ever seen. We don't get many rainbows here, but sometimes we get clouds that have colors in them due to ice crystals.

I wonder if a double rainbow has any significant meaning in mountain lore?

Miss_Yves said...

Awesome ! fantastic rainbow!

Fabulous! We saw a double rainbow like that at sea once. I took a few pictures, but mostly you just sit and stare!

Deanna said...

I've never seen anything like that! Just beautiful!

Very nice, especially the double rainbow shots. I saw one once that ended on one of those huge, roadside crosses you see in Tennessee. I was driving on Interstate 40 and couldn't safely stop at that point for a picture. When I could stop safely, the "pot of gold" spot had moved, of course. Rats!

This indeed the Mother of all rainbows! Actually I see two rainbows. Would Noah's rainbow surpass this one?
Thanks for your comment! I should now read "Hans Brinkers and the Silver Skates".The author is American, but I have to look up her name.

That is a fantastic rainbow! I haven't seen one like that in a while. Great pic Vicki!

Wow! No need for a pot of gold at the end. The treasure is just in seeing this. Thank you.

Well, wouldn't you just know it? We get the rain...you get the rainbow...and the gold. Wrong side of the mountain again.
