Rainbow

We had a very dry month of May, but a much-needed shower moved through the area on Saturday. As the sun emerged after the rain, a rainbow appeared in a low arc in the eastern sky. It seemed unusual to see a rainbow so low to the horizon.

It's difficult to see, but the bottom layer of the rainbow is a beautiful shade of purple.

Thanks to Hilary at The Smitten Image for including this post as a Post of the Week.

    Betsy, thanks. It was a new sight for Doug and me, too.

    Hilary, I wish you'd have been here to capture it with your photographic ability and equipment. :)

    Tex, I thought so, too.

  9. Linda, what an unusual flat shape of the rainbow. I can only join the others and say I've never seen it like this. It's beautiful. Did it last long?

  10. Petra - Rainbows never seem to last very long. With the least little change in the light, they're just a memory. This one was just as brief as most.

  11. How pretty! I don't know if I've seen one quite like that. I hope you've been well Linda. I'm trying to work my way back in the blogosphere. Took a longer break than expected. :)
