When we visited our son in Hawaii, we were amazed to see a rainbow just about every day.  That's not so common here.  This one, like most I see, is an afternoon shower.  The sun needs to be behind one in order to see a rainbow in front.  This direction is looking roughly northeast, which 'works' as far as the mechanics of rainbows go.  It needs to be sunny behind, and a bit rainy in front.  Since our weather usually progresses from west to east, and the sun is low in the west in the afternoon, when I see a rainbow, it's usually in the afternoon.  I'm such a science nerd but still, they are beautiful things to behold.

  1. This is nice. I saw a rainbow on my way to work last Friday and tried to snap it with my phone. You can imagine how that turned out.


The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
