I can sing a rainbow...

What a rainbow...

This is the rainbow that was in the sky yesterday morning.
It was a grey, dull, pouring with rain kind of morning and in the middle if it all was this glorious rainbow.
This is what it actually looked like - those colours are the true colours, without touch up. I zoomed in, but that's it. I have never seen such a colourful rainbow. Look at how the beams of light have coloured the leaves in the bottom right hand corner. When I looked closely I realised that it was a double rainbow with the dark arc between them, but by the time I went inside to get my camera the second rainbow had faded somewhat.

If you look really closely you can just about see it.

"My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:"

(Wordsworth - My Heart Leaps Up)

Even through the rain, that sight puts a sparkle in your day doesn't it?

Happy Friday.
