A Truly Memorable Rainbow Offers an Encore Performance

When parked in the lot of a favorite supermarket one day last week, typing, as usual, in my car, a man approached my window, gesturing toward the sky.

If not for the thoughtful stranger, I would have missed the most memorable rainbow I have ever witnessed. The full bow stretched high across the sky, every color visible in detail. A bright rosy glow appeared for a time in the center of the arch. I’ve never seen that effect before.

Two days later, as I drove up the lane that leads to lot, at precisely the same time as the rainbow had appeared, I noted that the atmospheric conditions seemed oddly similar to those on that evening when the rainbow filled the sky with wonder.

Sure enough, when I turned my gaze toward the east, there was the base of a rainbow as vivid as the one that was there the other day. What are the chances? I wondered. The spot where the twin phenoenon touched the ground appeared to be identical. Perhaps I should locate the business that sells lottery tickets situated closest to that point.

I didn’t get my camera out in time, but this partial bow was just as vivid as the complete one that appeared at the same location two days previously!

An Unidentifed Vine Reaches for the Sky, Clinging Only to Thin Air

I don’t believe I published this photo, taken a month or two ago. I was so intrigued by this vine’s ability to hold itself up without support, I had to record the sight.

For some reason, the photo system doesn’t show the vine properly when flipped over to vertical view. It really is clinging, seemingly, to thin air.

Something Resembling a Rainbow

I need to get out my weather book and look this one up. Not a rainbow, not a sun dog . . . not sure what to call this full spectrum illusion which moved and transformed it’s way across the sky recently.

Caught it on a drive and wanted to share. Does anyone know what it would be officially called?

A Great Workday Morning Wakeup

As I pulled into the parking lot of my workplace, not long ago, this heavenly view greeted me, as I turned to open my car door. Wish all work days would begin this way. Sorry for the smudge on my camera’s lens!
