SkyWatch Friday- A Rainbow over the desert






It was a rainy day, off and on, today in Tucson. I was greeted with a soft rain when I got up and then later in the day, on my way home there was this gorgeous rainbow stretched completely over my house. A second rainbow shadow was very faint showed up along one side and is visible in the first picture.
Go here to see my other desert SkyWatch pictures.

Excellent rainbows. The third photo is my favourite, the rainbow "interacts" with the trees so nicely.

What spectacular shots! Rainbows are usually so ephemeral, I'm amazed that you were able to capture this one so many times and so clearly. Thanks for brightening my morning!

I love the rainbow over the desert. The ones I see are usually over the water, so that's a nice change. :-)

Dee, thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on my ominous clouds and pumpkins! :-) I didn't realize it was you at first, A Desert Observer--love your blog! I am pining away for my daughter and grandson who now live there! So, your blog helps me see a bit of their world each day, as well as enjoying the wonderful desert scenery and flora!
