Mac: What great photos of the different rainbows. I only saw one this year with all the sky watching I do. Interesting questions and answers.

coolgirlsar said...

I wonder if you get a double pot of gold with a double rainbow. Lovely photos and interesting to find out about the true shape of a rainbow, I'm saving that for my five year old.

Bradley Myers said...

Great rainbow photos, and I did not know the answer without clicking the link.

Great lesson with even greater pictures!

Pat - An Arkansas Stamper said...

Beautiful, beautiful rainbow captures, Imac! Thanks for sharing.

Catherine said...

Imac,
You're also a Rainbows collector. You own great treasures.
I don't even need to find an explanation about their creation, I prefer just admiring as long as good photographers manage to catch them, and share with us, Skywatchers, for free.
Thanks for the present

Carletta said...

Maybe you didn't find gold, but there's 'gold' in these photos - beautiful!
Double rainbows in the first and last - very cool Imac.

Yeah,I knew they were circles. :)

Ana said...

Great shots, and answer...well, I prefer the one we had as children-Walk under the rainbow, and your wish will come true ;)

Leedra said...

Love the rainbows. They are good enough to have been a post by themself. Great series.

Photo Cache said...

Cool post. Love the series of rainbow shots.

Luiz Ramos said...

Thank very much for info.
The true rainbow gold is Happiness. Isn´t it?!!

ilanadavita said...

What a lovely selection!

said...

I like rainbows. When I was a child, I was told not to point or it will cut off my fingers. :) I still don't.

Even your mountain's name sounds sweet.

I got to know my downtown for my skywatch this week.

Tanya said...

What a beautiful series of rainbows! Isn't it funny how a rainbow puts a smile on everyones face?
Happy skywatch :)

bowledover said...

Imac lovely pictures of all of these rainbows. Well captured and thank you for sharing.
We try Culverthorpe Lake for some photography, being as we are in Sleaford its not far away. Have you ever been?
Have a good week.

babooshka said...

Spectacular arc of should I say circle. The rainbow lesson was genuinely fascinating.

MEDITERRANEAN KIWI said...

did we see the same rainbow? it looks exactly like the one i saw only two days ago!

Carver said...

Those are all wonderful rainbow shots. I didn't even know enough to guess so I was glad you linked the answer.

Kim said...

I love this photo series. Rainbows always make the perfect subject, but you have to move fast before they disappear. Great job!

Torsdag said...

Wrong answer, but I like the rainbow-show.

Deborah Godin said...

We can never have too many rainbows - these are wonderful! Really, who needs gold...

Anne-Berit said...

Wow,this was wonderful,rainbows in every picture.Beautiful photos.Have a nice day!

Louise said...

Wonderful shots. The brightness of the 3rd one is my favorite.

david mcmahon said...

Lovely selection, iMac.

Some months ago I posted about the ``real'' shape of a rainbow - because I saw one while taking off from Kathmandu, Nepal!

Reluctantfarmchik said...

People like you are those who make the world stop believing in Santa - how dare you! :-) Lovely post - amazing shots. One day I'll capture a rainbow on camera too. Till then - I'll enjoy SWF with people like yoU!

marley said...

Yet again brilliant photos. I have never yet managed to take a good rainbow photo. I guess I'll just have to keep trying!

dAwN said...

Grammy said...

I love rainbows. Thanks for the answer too.

alicesg said...

Very lovely photos for SWF. Love the series of photos of the rainbow. Have a nice weekend.

SandyCarlson said...

Don't know what makes a rainbow arc, Imac. But I sure do like it and your photos are magnificent.

Gmj said...

I totaly refuse to look, it will challenge my belief in hairy tails, I mean Fairy Tales. :D)

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

I love rainbows - your shots are amazing.

Tootie said...

IMAC your rainbows are beautiful, but you have definately burst my bubble. :-( No gold.....

Ackworth born said...

no real pots of gold but surely the golden glow when one sees a lovely rainbow is much more precious.

NovaS said...

I like the shot you made today... that's realy hilarious...
I believe soo...

happy weekend...

The Good Life in Virginia said...

this rainbow post is awesome ... thanks for sharing with us.

Shammickite said...

I haven't seen a rainbow for ages! So I enjoyed your rainbow pictures a lot!

CrazyCath said...

They are fanTAStic shots!!! Without checking the link yet, I would answer that a rainbow is not a bow at all, but a complete circle. I'm off to see if I am right in a minute.

The third and fourth shots are just magnificent. Excellent captures and very very worthy of a POTD mention in my book!

Dewdrop said...

I love the educational challenge. It's amazing that rainbows are actually circles.

Terrific collection of rainbows you posted! I love rainbows... seem to be a lot of them being posted this time. That makes me smile!

Brit' Gal Sarah said...

What a great post, love the pictures!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Daryl said...

I am SO jealous of rainbox photos .. sigh .. one day ...

Happy Weekend!

raf said...

The best, imac! Your's are magnificent!

mirage2g said...

Why are there so many songs about rainbows? What's on the other side? Someone said something, and someone believed it, look what its done so far....

of course the pot of gold is a myth, whoever started it was an effective liar.

Beautiful rainbow fotos, thank God (who was the first to show the rainbow) for wonderful creation that you beautifully captured! TC!

John said...

Great rainbow photos, imac!
Very well captured.

Have a nice weekend.

Gaelyn said...

Marvelous collection of rainbows. I believe a true rainbow is a circle.

Laura ~Peach~ said...

OHHHHHHH some of my absolutely most favorite posts / photos ever I LOVE rainbows!!!! and I certianly did not know that rainbows were actually circles... facinating :)

Wren said...

No pot of gold? Darn!
