    There have been individual threads, but no general ones for rainbows, so here goes. I was greeted by this this morning, an unusual time for a rainbow around here. I was struck by how the sky seemed to change brightness right at the rainbow. You can also see a touch of a second one. It certainly made morning coffee with the dog more enjoyable, especially since the E-PM1 with the 14 was right at hand..

    This is a bank at the end of this rainbow. Seriously.

    I believe I was on my way to/leaving from Loch Lomond, Scotland, UK.
    It was raining all morning and I was cursing my luck til the rain stopped and showed some bows after lunchtime... :) 

    Here's another shot of it, taken with my wife's RX-100...

    I would have gone looking for the pot of gold.:biggrin: I remember the one time I took a week long vacation in Ireland, i saw a rainbow every day. This is far more frequent than I would see in Virginia, which lead me to understand all of that rainbow folklore.
