And a double at that!  Pretty spectacular after a nasty thunderstorm rolled through just now. I do believe this means I have multiple pots of gold on the property, yes?

Is that bright spot the sun dog these two jumped out of?

Rainbows are always cool! I shot this one a few years ago, at the end of a very dry summer season... As a glowing beacon of hope above dry brown fields!

Hi Terri, not sure!  The weird thing was, the rainbow and bright spot were to the South at one end and to the East at the other end (almost exactly), and the sun was within about 30 minutes of setting, obviously to the West. So if it was a sundog, it was about 90 degrees away from where the sun was setting at its closest. A very strange sky it was.

That is a beauty Rene!

Whatever you say buddy! And I believe this tiny ad too:
