ON WEDNESDAY THE WINDS WERE BLOWING AT NEAR 40 MILES AN HOUR. I LOOKED OUT THE WINDOW AND SAW THIS RAINBOW THAT SEEMED TO APPEAR OUT OF NOWHERE. I GRABBED MY CAMERA AND HEADED OUT TO THE DECK WHERE I TOOK THIS PHOTO. ALL OF A SUDDEN A QUICK BURST OF HAIL POUNDED DOWN AND ENDED THE PHOTO SESSION.

I love rainbows. To see one this time of year is amazing!

Thom said...

That is gorgeous my friend. A couple of weeks ago I was walking Nalu to the park and saw a rainbow. By the time I got my camera ready...it was gone. So boy you do have to be quick. Love it :)

Carol said...

Wow, what a great capture... it is a gorgeous rainbow! I am amazed that you get shots like this right on your deck! Beautiful.

What a perfect photo! I never get rainbows to show in film they way they do to my eye, but you managed it wonderfully!

Carver said...

I love the winter rainbow. That's one of the things I love about bare branches, you see sights like the rainbow through them where you'd miss it with leaves. Great shot.

Riet said...

Frank Williams said...

Denise said...

Hi Carletta, I'm glad you captured that beautiful rainbow before the hail started pelting down. Just beautiful.

Tricia said...

You looked out that window at the perfect time to capture it & it's beautiful!
The winds were strong here too, but we didn't have hail, thank GOD!

I may have said this 40 or 50 times before -- but I am in such awe of your ability (and agility) in getting the perfect captures -- And this picture is a perfect example -- you had such a few minutes to grab it and you did it perfectly. I'd put this picture on my wall (if I had any extra ones in our RV).
