Rainbows can be fleeting... they are there for a moment, and then gone. Not so with this one... it was one of the most beautiful & long lasting rainbows I've seen (and a double one, at that!) I had just gotten off work, and was getting ready to have dinner with a friend when the thunderstorm rolled in, bringing with it the most amazing skies...
I am always in awe of such natural beauty... and I was so excited to capture it, I didn't notice the raindrops on my lens until many photos later! (Click to enlarge.) It's long lasting nature allowed my friend & I to capture it from many angles around town.
Near the plaza above... and St Francis Cathedral below~
I shall never tire of such natural beauty!
