Ephemeral Beauty



It never quite got warm enough today for the pool—and then at 6 o'clock or so, a thunderstorm powered through—poor homeward bound commuters got drenched in a fast and furious storm.

Then the sun re-emerged—and gave-by way of an apology—a lovely rainbow.

I ran down stairs to capture—and here is what I got...


At first the rainbow arced all the way across the sky.








But the clouds pushed in and soon it was just a partial arc...
But if not the biggest or brightest, it was for a while doubled.









Then just before it faded the colors got bright and fanned out even more...

Beautiful pictures. I love rainbows. I try to get pictures everytime I see one. We had a beautiful rainbow on the Thursday night before Easter. I got a lot of pictures that night.
