WHILE BROWSING LAST WEEKS SKYWATCH A STORM BREWED OUTSIDE MY WINDOW. AS THE RAIN STOPPED THE SKY WAS STILL VERY DARK WHEN I NOTICED THE SUN BEGINNING TO SHINE ON THE TREETOPS SO I GRABBED MY CAMERA AND HEADED OUTSIDE. I GOT THREE OR FOUR PICTURES BEFORE THE RAINBOW FADED. IT WASN’T UNTIL I HAD DOWNLOADED THE IMAGES THAT I SAW THE SECOND RAINBOW.
Carletta, in fact I see a faint rainbow over the main one. Nice countryside, a very enjoyable picture!
I see. I've had occasion to see many double rainbows over the little sound. They are very pretty.
Good timing Carletta! One is exciting to view but two!! A God send! :)
BEAUTIFUL!I felt like I was looking at one of those magic eye posters - the kind where there is a hidden picture, but you have to refocus your eyes in just the right way. ;)It took me a bit to find the second rainbow, but I see it now.What a gorgeous sight!
Oh, great timing indeed, Carletta! And I can see the other rainbow! Magnificent shot!Have a great weekend!Sylvia
So faint...but clearly there. Wonderful my friend :)
It happened to me once. I notised the second one when I loaded the pictures on the screen. I learned thet the purple space between the main and the secondary rainbows is called Alexander's band. Such a beauty - and you captured it beautifully!
Very well composed, where the rainbow goes over the tree crown. Lovely
Really fantastic; it seems like I am looking out my own window.
Yes, I see the double rainbow. What a treat!Janice.
How exciting...someday I hope to catch a double rainbow...perfect timing. Thanks for sharing.
Always lovely to see a rainbow and extra special to see a double, particularly when you haven't realised.
I can see it, there always appears to be a double bow, never seen one on its own. Great contrast with the grey sky, thanks for sahring Carletta:) have a great weekend.

How magical. We rarely see rainbows here.
Is there anything so beautiful as a double rainbow? Wonderful capture.
What a beautiful double rainbow - great capture! It always amazes me how much lighter the sky/clouds are under the rainbow compared with above. Makes a dramatic visual effect.
