Red and yellow and pink and green,
Purple and orange and blue,
I can sing a rainbow,
Sing a rainbow,
Sing a rainbow too!
We were treated to this spectacular double rainbow this evening! This was one of the best we have seen in years and amazingly we could see the “rain line” where it was dark on the side we were on and sunny on the far side of the rainbow. You can sort of see that in the photos. It was far too large to get a photo of the whole thing, but it sure looked like there might be a pot of gold at either end, both sides of which appeared to touch the earth! Nature photos rarely do justice to the majesty that we see in real time and that is definitely the case here.
Lots of folks find religious and spiritual influences in feats of nature like this. Others, like myself, see the scientific side of water refracting light. Regardless, its experiences like these that prove to me how small we really are in the big picture of our world and our universe.
I had the opportunity to experience this with my daughter as we chased it around and tried to find the best position to get a photo before it faded into obscurity. That is all the spirituality I need!
A fascinating world we live in sometimes!
