Skywatch Friday
March 19th, 2010

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!

Beautiful sequence! Who needs a pot of gold when there are such treasures absolutely free?

I am so glad that you left that sink full of dishes and grabbed your camera! The words were lovely too -- such a great reminder of the way beautiful things so often happen at unexpected times (on ordinary days)! Your son gave you a nice bonus picture as well. Thanks for sharing

Now Hilda if you think that will encourage more of us to go and seek the rainbow in our kitchen sinks ..lol my DH is searching for one right now and has only found those from the dishwashing bubbles..lol

I always remember my Grandfather saying to me that the rainbow was God's promise of better things to come.

Fabulous shots, Hildred. I'm glad you captured them in time. I like the way it's dipping into the hillside.
