Rainbow’s End

These two photographs show the same stunning autumn rainbow which appeared as a part of a ‘double rainbow’ … there was a fainter one above this one. Unfortunately I had my macro lens on at the time, and I know how quickly rainbows can fade. So I grabbed my camera and took what I could. I wish I could have got the whole arching rainbow in all its magnificence … and even the one one above it, but at least I have these.

  1. Beautiful rainbows. We are suffering a literal scorched earth here. I hope to post a rainbow when rain eventually falls šŸ™‚


  2. Beautiful Pete. Rainbows are always lovely even when we only capture sections of them.

    1. Thank you Annie! Yes, it was not that far away, and if it wasn’t for the fact that it was probably somewhere in someone’s backyard I would have gone searching for that pot lol! šŸ™‚


  3. Rainbows are difficult to photograph at the best of times so we’ll done. We saw a fabulous one over St Ives bay on Monday, a ful arch and the water was a beautiful cloudy aqua colour, but I was driving and there was nowhere to stop.

    1. Thank you, Jude. It’s shame you couldn’t snap your rainbow down there. There is always a time when you wish you have a camera in your hand.
