The End Of The Rainbow

My first post in over a month. I wish I could say that I'm all the way back, but I'm not really sure when my next post will be. All I can say is that I've been busy now so I can have the free time to visit the places that give me the source for all of my posts. So I hope I'm back soon with lots of new stuff for you.

But today's picture is a fun one for me. It was a very stormy day when I took it. I was out riding in the truck when I saw a break in the very dark clouds up ahead. As you can see, the cornfields looked like they were just glowing in the narrow sunlight.

As we got to the middle of the sunshine I looked to my right and saw this huge rainbow forming. There was actually a double rainbow at one point. Luckily I wasn't the one driving this time so I was able to get my phone camera out and take these pictures before it all disappeared. 

When the rainbow was at its most brilliant I could actually see the place where it ended in the cornfield in the top picture. It crossed my mind that if only I had the time I would run out there and search for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that they talk about in all the stories.

But we had to keep moving to our next destination. As the truck moved on the rainbow began to fade away. The sky looks much brighter in the second picture, but it was really darker all around because the dark clouds were back.

And that ended my brief little vacation from the work I had to do. I love rainbows a lot. I never got to see one until I was well into my twenties. I always wanted to see a rainbow when I was a kid, but I never did. I see one every few months now. I hope you see them sometimes too. I'll talk to you again as soon as I can.

  3. Very cool shots.

    Sometimes you have to search for the rainbow. If you know the signs--sun out during a light rain--and you know which direction to look (east), you will find them.

  6. I am so glad you get to see them often now. And I wonder where you lived as a child, where there weren't any. ( I used to wish I could see a firefly when I was a kid reading about them. And I was in my 60s before I did. ).

  7. I love rainbows! I just saw another post about rainbows, and the author mentioned that little clouds around the rainbow looked like rainbow mustaches. I thought that was a cute way of putting it.

  11. Hello,

    The first photo is fabulous and took my breath away. A brilliantly sunlit cornfield, a dark cloudy sky and a wonderful rainbow spreading from one end to the other. Very fascinating.

    Best wishes
