Rainbow Sunday

A double rainbow appeared last evening..practically in our yard.

It was a beautiful site that we would have enjoyed longer but we were getting pelted by rain and the wind was blowing fifty miles an hour.

Photographing a real rainbow has been on my photographic bucket list a long time.  I  got one barely acceptable rainbow photo all last summer, so I am very pleased to have captured these.

We spent the afternoon at a Flea Market and in an Antique Shop..I bought more old photos and Far Guy bought more “stuff” for his train. What we purchase is predictable.   We took Chance along, he loved the Flea Market and all the smells, one of the vendors even gave him a dog treat.

I spent the evening getting the old computer all set up for the Grandboys..I tried the Flight Simulator a few times..needless to say I am not a pilot.  I left lots of games on that computer for the boys to play.  Hopefully they won’t fight over it..I may have to get one of those wind up timers:)

  3. Good for you - that's one of the prettiest rainbow photos I've ever seen, Connie.
    I stopped in the local Chinese restaurant to get take out and their son and daughter were politely playing on one computer. I was very impressed!
    Have a good week.

  8. As an adult I have a hard time sharing one computer. God keeps giving me chances to learn that lesson.

    Double rainbows are so amazing, I love them, often seen here in the front yard - northeast - unfortunately I've seen the nutty double rainbow thing on YouTube - grrrr.

  10. You did really well. I have never managed to capture one to my satisfaction - I often take pictures of what I think of as stunning rainbows only to discover you can hardly see them in the captured image
