SkyWatch ~ Last Light Rainbow


The sun peeped out from under the westering clouds and
through the tears of heaven painted wonders in the east.


The colours bloomed and smiled, them quickly faded


as the sun slipped back behind her sheltering clouds in the
west.

Many skies full of wonders to be found behind the tiny SkyWatch
Logo at right, click and enjoy, or even better, join in with the fun.

A big thank you to our SkyWatch hosts for letting us share the beauty of our skies.

  22. Tricia,

    no. definitely not a sundog, it was a close up of the end of the stronger of a double rainbow as you can see in the first shot. Sundogs surround the sun but my rainbow was in the eastern sky as the sun was setting in the west.

  23. A rainbow is like the arrival of hope that plants the gold in the yards of those that seek and find.
