… and then the sky smiled

Amidst all our cloudy, rainy, dreary days of the winter, there happens upon a time a parting of the clouds, with a glow from one end of the sky shooting brilliant rays of light toward the opposite end of the sky. I happened to turn my head toward the window at this exact moment in time and knew exactly what was forming in the heavens. I rushed to the window, and, lo and behold, my intuition was spot on. I beheld in my sights an intensely colored rainbow, of which I had not been privy to witness in quite some time. In fact, a second, more faintly colored rainbow was forming alongside the primary one. I quickly grabbed my camera and darted outside to capture this Kodak moment. What luck!

    It’s been dreary and rainy along the Texas Gulf Coast as well. I’m looking forward to some sunshine…. soon, I hope. Lucky you to capture that beautiful rainbow 🙂

    Great catch indeed. This is the time of year to be watching for these delights. The tough part is catching the moment.
