Double Rainbow

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Yesterday was an amazing day.  Little Man has waited a year to see a specialist.  At our long awaited appointment yesterday we were told great news -- what looked like a potential problem last year has turned out to have gone away.  No follow-up visits are necessary since everything looked good.

On the drive home, I saw the most brilliant rainbow.  I have never seen one with such intensity.  And then I realized there wasn't just one -- there were TWO rainbows!  I didn't even know that was possible.  I grabbed my phone and snapped some quick pictures while the car was moving (fortunately I wasn't driving).  Although I have cropped these photos, I have not altered the colours;  the main rainbow really was this brilliant.  I could only photograph a part of the rainbows as we moved through traffic, but we were able to see the full arc of both rainbows before I thought to get out the camera.  It is interesting to note that the outer rainbow has the colours in reverse order!

It was such an incredible sight, made even more special because the sky was echoing what was in my heart:  pure happiness and joy.
