And a fine shot it is too Astrid
Picturit: Thank you so much Chris, it was a rainbow from 'floor to floor' and double, it rained too much for me to go out and try to capture it full.

Picturit: I am glad I made you happy, I tried to put music in my next post (tomorrow) sad the link did not work.

Yup!
Count me in. Has to be the best site for a disco.

[Funny thing, Astrid...I have never seen a rainbow in Thailand where it rains a lot, but saw many in Australia where it rains only a little.]
Picturit: This is very surprising to me, maybe because the sun is at a different angle, the colours do not show??
....we will call you if we go party!!

At 8:30 last night it was very dark and cold where I live.

Bright picture in the after light. I wish you a rainbow, I wish you an attic, I wish you an MLS to share it tonight.
Picturit: Een brede glimlach van oor to oor.... Ginnie weet dit ook in het Nederlands te zeggen, you are so right, once I hope to be with Ginnie and share these magic moments...

Astrid
Ohh, very nice. I love the golden (sounds better than brown smile ) color of the sky.
Picturit: You ar right, the sky was brown, but we just can change that in Golden Sky....
It was magic for sure

Oh, heel geweldig! Dit zijn magische momentjes idd- alleen maar twee keer heb ik een dubbel-regenbogen beleefd- we hadden ook een sterk onweer over de gehele nacht, en zelf nu is het nog aan het onweren! Ja, ik kan jou navoelen hoe gelukkig jij mocht zijn geweest toen je deze foto heeft opgenomen...!
Picturit: Philine jij voelt het helemaal goed aan, dit zijn toch magische momenten van de natuur, die laat zien dat het ook mooi kan zijn na regen en storm, er was ook helemaal geen schade en het was ook maar kort.
De regenboog liet zich zeker 5 minuten bewonderen.
Astrid
Nice photo, a rainbow always work! The way you used it in the composition works very good! The colors in the photo is also very nice with the rainbow!
Picturit: Thank you Robbie for your kind words, I know I had about 5 minutes but than I have to think about how/if/ I can get the 'ground to ground' rainbow in...
Astrid.
Splendid capture Astrid. Well done!
Picturit: Thanks Richard, my pleasure.

What a cracking view, Astrid. I always thought double rainbows were unusual but they are quite common apparently.
Picturit: A few times a year we do get them, but don't ask me why, I have another picture of a year back and it is double but not a high as this one.
WOW nice rainbow.Hope the storm wasn't too noisy and heavy as the ones i know in NL .And who needs godl when you are in love?grin
Picturit: You just said the right things, I found the love of my life too....and no the storm was not to noisy, I hope you get used to that.
Are you able to immigrate to the Netherlands soon??

Astrid we could all use a pot of gold.Great photo
Picturit: wink I know, after a vacation like that... wink but than, I found the love of my life, that is more than gold to me.
Astrid.
Wonderful capture Astrid...and that pot is just under the tree on the left. Love the tones in this.
Picturit: I went looking, however it was gone, but who cares, I found the love of my life, so who needs gold....I am as happy as can be.
Thank you for your kind words, as always.
Astrid.
A superb double rainbow Astrid - I love the light in the sky too ;o)
Picturit: Thank you Mike, the sky was that strange colour, full of drama, it was like this for at least 5 minutes, I love these spacial moments, just to be in owe.....
Astrid.

The rainbow (double or single) is enough reason to dance or be merry even without the pot of gold.

Fab capture Astrid.
Picturit: I love to dance even if there is no reason to dance...and I found the love of my life, so who needs gold???
Astrid.
sheer wonderment Astridsmile
Picturit: smile to me too, even if I have seen a few double ones, grin even with out a drink tongue
Things from nature are wonderful.
Astrid.
That's quite the amazing capture. A gorgeous double rainbow, excellent exposure for this perfectly formed rainbow.
Picturit: John, your words do mean a lot to me, it was an unique moment and my camera is always 'stand-by' for things like this, I love it when something unexpected appears and the result is good.

Crikey Astrid, I have not seen such a spectacular spectacle.
Picturit: ...from did I ever tell you the one about the man who though......
you talk in riddles, is that the one about the man who wanted to go to Paris...for he never went there...
Thank you for your great compliment and I do hope that you once will see a double rainbow, it adds to life I think wink
I did make a wish.....

What a lovely rainbow Astrid, well worth the capture. Could this be the same one we saw off the coast of Northumberland one night last week. Great recording, not one of the "messed about" versions that irritate me.
