A progressive rainbow in the Similkameen.....
It is a dark day, promising nothing but clouds and rain and wind.
I look up from the sink full of soapy water, off to the north where the sky is lighter than it is in the south, - and there it is.
A lovely bright rainbow hugging the tops of the mountains. By the time I get the camera it has lost some of its brilliance.
This is a catch as catch can show and progressively it gets fainter as the moments pass.
A few hundred yards down the hill our son was able to capture the complete rainbow, stretching close to the horizon across the northern end of the valley.
Lovely way to start the day!
