After the Rain: Your Best Rainbow Photography
The best part of a summer thunderstorm? The chance of a spectacular rainbow after it passes! Here are seven breathtaking shots snapped by Our Canada readers.
Pretty in Pink
Sharon Peters of Three Hills, Alta., says, “One evening last summer, I noticed this beautiful sunset and rainbow out my window. I grabbed my camera and headed to the edge of town to snap this photo.”
A Good Luck Omen
Wanda Harron of Estevan, Sask., says, ”Years ago, after just purchasing a camera, I was anxious to try it out at a Saskatchewan Roughriders game. The game was delayed due to a thunderstorm that later produced this beautiful double rainbow just beyond Taylor Field in Regina. I dubbed the photo ‘God must love the Riders!’”
A Heavenly Plea
Will Nalley of Ottawa writes, ”I captured this shot on the mighty St. Lawrence River last spring. My brother Omar seems to be asking the Heavens to provide a bounty of topwater fish action!”
“I was visiting the horses at Olds College here in town, which has an equine horse program for students,” shares Veronica Reist of Olds, Alta. ”A rainstorm was passing through, so I snapped a photo.”
A Stunning View
Susan Riley of Medicine Hat, Alta., writes, ”My husband Kevin and I were driving to Coronation, Alta., to visit family, when I spotted this rainbow. It had the most vibrant colours I’d ever seen; I had to stop and snap a pic.”
On Her Doorstep
Brenda MacDonald of St. Joseph du Moine, N.S., says, ”This pic was taken from my front lawn one summer, right here in northern Cape Breton.”
Double Your Pleasure
