Catching Rainbows

This washed out picture does not do justice to the maginificient luminous rainbow that formed after a recent rain shower. Right out the front door to our house, the color-rich rainbow could be viewed from arc to arc for about seven minutes. Our house sat like pot of mortgage in the middle.
In all of my 46 years, I had never seen a complete rainbow from one side to the other in such dramatic fashion. I made the most of the time that it could be seen. Grabbing my camera and camcorder, my wife and I took stills and home movies of the rare atmospheric event.
Appreciating rainbows are alot like not taken life for granted. You never know how long we are here to catch the next rainbow nor how long we or the rainbow will last.

This was a serendipitous occasion!
Lucky you and all of those who viewed it.

It just goes to prove that one's perception can be more than other people's reality; those who did not see the rainbow were lost in space & atmospheric indifference!

Joe - The family and I recently saw a similar rainbow - having two high schoolers in the house, it was child's play (pun intended) to track the geometric dimensions of the half-circlet - while impossible to ever know where a rainbow begins, we are almost certain it's ending point was the worldwide headquarters of Freudian Slips right there in S. Jersey!

All the best.

Has it never bothered you that it's called a rainbow, yet it's not made of rain at all? Just sayin.

Saw this rainbow as well while driving home, once there Mike and I just stood outside and watched the beautiful event sent from heaven. The news station showed the complete circle from the air, unbelievable.
