    Ive seen a few rainbows from a far when I lived in Florida, but nothing like the ones I have seen here. I went on to my balcony for a minute, and noticed this:

    While its only a rainbow, its still fascinating to see one that is so complete, and so close to me. Very interesting.

    The first photo is beautiful! I've never seen such a complete and vivid rainbow either, but here in the UK we only see them a couple of times a year. Usually in the summer after a rain shower.

    It was so clear, it looked fake to be honest. I can see where it hit the ground on each side, but when I looked with my binoculars, no pot of gold :(

    That's a brilliant photo, and you can easily see where the pot of gold is at the end of it!

    edit: you got your second post in before mine. no pot of gold eh? damn!

    The first one is real pretty. Too bad the railing is in there or it would be damn perfect.

    Neat pics.

    Like the second one. You can see a face, on the right, looking at the Rainbow. Granted it's a bit distorted (the face) but cool nonetheless.

    Thanks for sharing. :)

    In the clouds, right above the mountain. Literally "kissing" the rainbow.



    Beautiful pictures, thanks for sharing. I showed it to a couple of my friends, and they're like "Wow, that's amazing".

    *thumbs up*

    Thanks for the love guys. Now imagine if I had photography experience, and was using some of the SLRs that people on these boards have. I used my Canon Ixus 200 IS to get the shots. I really want to get into photography (love taking pics ---> 6000 photos in iPhoto) and pick me up a SLR, but I am red/green colorblind, and while I can tell the difference between most colors, its still a flaw I have.

    There were two of them, but I noticed the second one on the left side. Nice catch.
