Friday Shoot Out - Rainbow

This week's theme, colors of the rainbow, is from Debby at the Pink Birdhouse. What a great idea!

These colors are everywhere right now. I love rainbows, and we get many of them here. I am so fortunate that my front yard faces west, and the back east. I get sunrise & sunset, and when there's any moisture, I usually get a great view of the rainbows!

your photos are the best. at first I thought the first one was of the northern lights, maybe someone lives close enough to the poles to get those into the shootout. I have never seen a rainbow that was circular - fantastic.

Beautiful photos. The close-ups of the flowers are fantastic. :) M

GingerV - I would LOVE to see the northern lights! You know how cloud pictures are never as spectacular as they are in person? I'm thinking it's true of those lights as well!

Marion - thank you! The previous owners that planted them had an eye for beautiful colors.

Debby - I'm a "pink" girl too. Pinks & roses & shabby. :)

Wow! You really have a talent for taking beautiful photos! I love the rainbow!

Have you ever seen a double rainbow? That's cool!

shabby girl said...

k - actually, we have doubles here ALL THE TIME!!! No kidding. I'm not sure why, maybe something to do with the mountains???? I'll try to find them & post them!

Loved them all! They were all my favorite!

Arizona has beautiful sunsets. I have a fondness in my heart for your state from my excursions into the Grand Canyon. My twin daughters and their families hiked down this past Saturday. Thanks for the great photos.
