Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 24 August 2017 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A sighting that took us by total surprise. After a storm passed us by and the sun came out, comment was made by a family member that we should see a rainbow. She was pointing toward the sun. I told her that it would usually appear opposite of the sun. And as we turned toward the east, there it was. But we could only see a portion of it; the remainder obstructed by trees.

This was the one time that I didn't have my camera, knowing how bad the weather may be, I didn't want to subject it to any rain. So the best I could do is reach for my cell phone. To get a better view, we opened the gate and ran out onto the first fairway of the golf course and faced toward the clubhouse (seen at the bottom).
