      The rainbow was amazing, (it was there for well over 30 minutes) I chose the quote to fit the rainbow.

      Or did the rainbow find me so I could use the quote?

    oh! a double rainbow :)

    you will have noticed, of course, you being an ‘inveterate clicker’ :) , that the colours in the second one are reversed.

    • CherryPie says:

      Yes, the reverse colours always make me smile :-) Because I know most people don’t see that ;-)

      And to remember the colours of the first rainbow in order I was taught this in my younger years…

      Richard of York gains battles in vain.

    It’s true, Cherry, if only we’d believe it and harness it! Look at that double rainbow. When I worked in accounting years back we had a client named Roy G Biv. I’ve never forgotten the colors of the rainbow since…or their order. :)

  3. JD says:

    by the way – there are only six colours in the rainbow, three primary (red, blue, yellow) and three secondary or opposites (green, orange, purple)
    These make up the colour wheel, as any painter will tell you.
    You can blame Isaac Newton for adding a seventh (indigo)
    It soesn’t say so here-
    - but Newton needed seven colours for occult reasons. he was an alchemist, don’t forget :)

    • CherryPie says:

      I had not heard that about Indigo before all though I do recall in the back of my there only being 6 colours…

      But of course a scientist would say that the primary colours are Red, Green and Blue ;-)

      It certainly confused me the first time I heard that in a science class, I seem to remember the teacher got a bit huffy about art when someone commented on the difference!

    Spectacular photo. Strange the way the rainbow affects the appearance of the clouds. Almost as though it contains them within a dome.

  7. Wow, a double rainbow!
    You must be lucky x
