I’ve seen plenty of rain in Glasgow, but it’s been a while since I’ve seen a rainbow. I stepped out of church today just in time to see the arc of the covenant right before it disappeared, and it put me in a jolly good mood 🙂
My first experience with Nuit Blanche Toronto, which happened tonight (and is still happening, in fact), had been more than just interesting, even though I only stayed for about three hours. The most ubiquitous display of artistic installation has gotta be Global Rainbow, a set of laser light projections spanning from the Spadina Chinatown all the way across the sky towards the CN Tower. As a result, you can see it in a lot of places, and this photo was taken right on Spadina, close to one end of the rainbow. Spectacular! I will definitely be looking forward to future Nuit Blanche events, and I will be more prepared next time 😛
I was just in time for sunset as I began walking home from the pool – the sun is now still up at 7:30pm, yay spring! The sun was slowing disappearing, but what I didn’t notice until I was examining the photos I took was that there was a very faint rainbow in the distance. What a magnificent surprise! Did it rain earlier?
It’s been raining intermittently since the morning till early afternoon. At around 4pm, I looked out my window and this sight welcomed me. Immediately I gasped and said “wow” out loud to the gorgeous full rainbow that appeared right in front of me. The field of view of my lens wasn’t wide enough to capture the entire arc, but what a beauty!
I took a similar picture from the exact same angle almost two years ago, but last time, it was a double rainbow. The storm begins tonight, but not before the setting sun gave us its last gift of the day. A few minutes later, the rainbow disappeared and the sky was painted in a burning purple hue. It was just gorgeous.
