Skywatch Friday: Anniversary Rainbow

Last evening, just before the sun set, a strong cold front swept through the area. In its wake, a series of beautiful rainbows graced the landscape here on the mid coast of Maine. These rainbows had the most vivid colors that I have ever seen. And to make the natural phenomenon even more special was that they occured on our wedding anniversary.

All photos taken with a Canon 40D and a Canon Nifty Fifty lens. Simply click a thumbnail for a full-sized view.

The first double rainbow occured over Winnegance Bay during low tide.

Shortly after the above rainbow dissipated, another double rainbow occured over the area of the town of Bath.

I would have loved to get a photo with a full view of the rainbows. I guess it’s time to think about getting a wide angle lense.
