Weekly Photo Challenge: Transient rainbows

The theme this week for the photo challenge is “Transient.”  I’ve been transient this summer, my second trip being to France and I’ve been back less than a week.  One afternoon after a rain, we saw a double rainbow that curved completely across the sky.  This segment only gives a hint at how bright it was, as my iPhone couldn’t capture it in all its glory, the deepest colors and most defined stripes I’ve ever seen, yet too transient.  Oddly enough, just a few days ago we saw another very bright double rainbow here in the Naperville, Ohio area.

    Love the bright sunlight and dark shadows against the spectacular rainbows…doubles are the best. Beautiful.

    • Thanks, Jeanne. Any rainbow is beautiful, but doubles are certainly special. I wish my shot could have conveyed the absolute beauty of this set, but what I have will have to do. 🙂

    Lovely image Janet. Even with the iPhone it’s a great capture. There is definitely something a bit special about double rainbows, and to find such clear colour too. Cool.
