Toronto, Canada, taken on October 16, 2014

Two years ago, I embarked on a very specific quest to find the rainbow on the Don Valley Parkway. It’s a secret landmark in Toronto that many people have seen while driving northbound on the DVP, but I was determined to find the exact place where it was hidden. It turns out that the rainbow bridge (or overpass, cave, whatever you’d like to call it) is found in Moccasin Trail Park, a tranquil little place that not many local Torontonians even know about. But success was mine, and I captured the rainbow, close up!

Glasgow, Scotland, taken on December 6, 2015

You have to experience the rain in order to welcome the rainbow, but 3+ weeks of rain is too much. C’mon, Glasgow. But OK, you gave me a lovely rainbow, which I haven’t seen in a while, so I forgive you. But did you really have to start raining again 5 minutes later? Sigh, I will never understand you, Glasgow.

Niagara Falls, Canada, taken on August 3, 2005

Rainbows are one of my favourite things to photography because they’re usually unplanned and unpredictable. The moment Mr. Roy G. Biv shows his face, you know the rain is over…except at Niagara Falls, when the rainbow isn’t necessarily caused by the rain. This photo was taken almost ten years ago (wow?) when Roy decided to form a real rainbow bridge between Canada and the US, and the “Maid of the Mist” happened to be passing below it. A most appropriate scene, no? 🙂

Toronto, Canada, taken on October 16, 2014

There is a rainbow tunnel off to the side of the DVP and since my visit, it has become one of my favourite places in Toronto. There is something magical about a rainbow that appears for perhaps merely a second as you drive by at 120 km/h, and it is even more magical when you venture into the hidden area to find its exact location. The tunnel was a short one, but standing at its entrance made me feel like the other side would be a whole different world. Maybe the rainbow would bring me to the pot of gold…!

December 19, 2014 – Rainbow outside a plane

December 19, 2014 § Leave a comment

[Travel time] I must again say that I would always choose a window seat over an aisle seat on a flight unless I have to make a tight connection between flights. For views like this rainbow outside the rainbow after take-off from Glasgow, being (hardly) stuck in a corner is worth it.
