Lovely, now where’s my pot of gold? ;)

🙂 I was driving through a sudden shower, on my way over the causeway to a birthday dinner celebration for my friend Cheryl, when I happened to glance to my left and saw this rainbow hanging out near Fort Myers Beach. I pulled over at the first opportunity. If you look closely, you can see that it’s actually a double, which had started to fade by time I found a place to stop. This is one of the BEST things about living in Southwest Florida. The skies are so big and dramatic, with towering clouds and beautiful rainbows 🙂

  1. What an absolutly gorgeous picture. As far as your pot of gold you could have taken a quick swim to check it out, but that would have just given you an intense workout. I think the pot of gold is realizing that your lucky enough to be alive to see such a wonder

  2. Welcome Erica, and amen! I’m a cancer survivor, so I’m definitely in that “lucky to be alive” category. Thanks for reminding me what my pot of gold is REALLY made of 🙂


  3. You are very blessed to have spotted a double rainbow. I saw it only once in my whole lifetime. I was out fishing with my husband and we were like in the middle of the double arched rainbow. That was a long, long time ago when we saw that event. Nice job on your Outdoor Wednesday post.

  4. Wow, I wish we had rainbows like that. Heck, I wish we had rain period. So pretty!

    Please come by for my first (and last) poetry reading about the Hippy Bees…lol.

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Great capture! I guess it’s about being in the right place at the right time, and then being able to make the camera get it. I once caught a rainbow over some buildings while walking home, but it really didn’t show up in the photo 🙁

  6. I think you do have the most amazing puffy clouds. The rainbow is a bonus. The pot of gold would be life altering and since I like you just the way you are I’m glad you didn’t find it. 🙂

  7. Arent you the lucky one to have captured that.

    I have found myself driving down the road (with my knees) just so i can captured a rainbow shot. As you know they all dont show as well… but this one is great.

    Good job.

    If you get a chance please stop by and say hi!

  8. At first, I thought you were going to say “if you look closly you can see a POT OF GOLD”!! hahaaaaaa…this is just beautiful, Tink.

  9. Hello Tink,

    What a great shot! We seem to get a lot of doubles here in Florida. I never quite seem to get a clear shot of one though.

    Thank you for sharing!

  10. I got a double a few weeks ago from my backyard, I’ll be using it this Friday. I do admit your beautiful water looks much better than my power lines. Beautiful shot!
