A double rainbow

Double Rainbow
The sky was getting very dark as I made my way to the old tree yesterday. As I took a few photos of the Swedish Whitebeam it started raining, so I put the camera back in the bag, put on my raincoat, jumped on the bike and started pedalling for home. As I reached the road I looked to the right and spotted a double rainbow. Or at least half of it so I continued maybe 30 meters, stopped and reached for the Canon. As I started shooting the horse ran into the frame. Skywatch Friday.

You have to love it when things come together to make a scene like this and you were ready to capture it.

Outstanding! I had never seen a double rainbow before this year, but now I have seen several. Odd.

Beautiful, I'm glad that you stopped and turned around. The horse showing up adds some dynamism to the shot.

OMG, this is the picture of the day. The rainbows are a fabulous catch, and the horse and driver create a perfect sense of scale. Very, very well done.

Such superb light and a double rainbow as well as the horse , more like a Hollywood movie set than real life. I've had one of our horses stick her head in front of my lens as I shot a sunset and she certainly made the shot.
