Colors

     Where I live there are very few rainbows. When there is a rainbow you'd better look fast because it doesn't last long.

     Last week there was a super rainbow. I was in such a hurry to get photos I took them through the window. This rainbow was a complete arc, large and very bright colors. I would say it's one of the best rainbows I have seen. 

    Now I couldn't get to an open area to get the whole arc.

    Maybe next time.



     Now how many songs can you think of with rainbow in them. You can't have Over the  Rainbow because that's mine.

  2. Wonderful pictures of the rainbow, Red. How about "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows" which seems perfect for you! :-)

  5. Yae for rainbows! I think I've only seen a handful of them when we lived in Chicago. Here in Hawaii, it's pretty common but they still inspire awe. One of my favorite songs is The Rainbow Connection by the Muppets.

  9. How about "The Rainbow Song" childrens song. Nice photo there - we get rainbows all the time here and I once caught a rainbow on both sides of the river - never got to do that before. Have a great day.

  16. Hi Red, Wasn't there one called "Rainbows and Lollipops"? Down there in Southwest Montana, the Madison Valley is sometimes called the Rainbow Valley because there are so many rainbows and one of the local motels is named Rainbow Valley Lodge. Ok, there you go! Thanks for getting the pics and sharing them.

  20. We had a humdinger a couple of weeks ago- best one I had ever seen- a double and I could see almost the whole thing. But, my camera just wouldn't see the colors..neither would my iphone..ooohhh I was so mad! But it was beautiful.

  21. I love rainbows, too, and I am fortunate enough to live away from other buildings to capture the full arc sometimes, by taking several shots and putting them together with my autostitch program. I have learned not to do this on 'auto' because the settings might change for each portion :)

  22. Rainbows are magical. Pretty photos! I can sometimes get a photo of a full arc here, if it's over the open fields.
