I know this has nothing to do with fiber, yarn, or spinning, but I thought you might enjoy it. While on a walk yesterday evening, it started sprinkling. Not enough to get wet, just a few drops through the sunshine. Suddenly to the east against the rain clouds, there was a huge beautiful rainbow. At first you could only see the ends and not the top of the arc, but after a few minutes the whole thing was visible.

It was still quite a distance to the house and rainbows don't usually stay visible very long, so after a little huffing and puffing, I got back in and grabbed the camera. The rainbow was so big the camera couldn't really get a shot of the whole thing at once.

You may not be able to see it on the monitor, but there was also just a hint of a second rainbow above the first. They actually hung around probably at least 10 or 15 minutes. Maybe we'll talk about yarn next we'll just do rainbows!

Nice that you were able to catch a rainbow (well, one and a little bit) on film. :) It's always such a "wow!" moment when you see them.

One of my very earliest memories as a child is looking out at a rainbow. Thanks for reminding me of it and for sharing such a lovely picture. It made me smile. Have a great weekend!
