That's very cool. I think I saw the same rainbow that day :) Well, maybe a different one, but I remember a couple rainbows in the last week on my way to work. I live in San Jose.

Wonderful shot. In all my shooting I have only caught one rainbow -- not from a lack of trying though.

J Bar said...

Beautiful rainbow. I love your profile shot. It's so much like mine, except mine is a statue.
