Glory and greatness

I've never seen a rainbow like this before.  I was out doing a senior portrait session this morning and we were waiting out a rain shower.  I was sitting under the tree and saw the faint impression of the larger rainbow, but from where I was sitting, I couldn't see the second rainbow closer to the horizon.  As the rain let up, I decided to go get a shot of the larger rainbow.  Imagine my surprise when I saw the vivid second rainbow underneath.  Life lesson - sometimes greatness isn't always apparent.  You have to get up and go see what's really there. 


  1. That is absolutely stunning.

    I think that the most important thing in photography isn't the equipment - it's the eye of the photographer. You have to be both in the moment, and prepared to seize the moment.

    You are blessed with a great eye, extraordinary surroundings -- and no small margin of just plain good luck. Nice job!

  2. What a great story! I had the exact feeling when my mother died and there was a rainbow, now I run out to see if I can see one.
