I thought it might be interesting if I shared bit more about my double rainbow experience. It’s not that I have hugely more stuff to say about it or anything, but I do have a couple more pictures to show you.
- (now that I come to think about it, I do seem to be on a bit of a picture binge at the moment)
Anyhow, the thing about that double rainbow was that I was actually in the middle of taking shots of something else when I spotted it.
So I was taking close up shots of raindrops on a glass window, like this:
And I noticed the light was getting brighter and brighter, and I turned to my left and there it was! So I reoriented the tripod and went to grab some shots before it went away. I was surprised at how quickly it went.
So even though the double rainbow really was only there for a few brief flickering moments, the fact that I was already shooting something else was why I was able to get the shots of it so quickly before it vanished. And thanks to the wonders of modern technology, that rainbow is now preserved forever. :)
