Rainbow quintuplet

Picture of the Moment

I went to Old Town San Diego this morning at 6:00. Old Town is coming up very quickly in my San Diego Historical Landmark series and since I don’t like people in my pictures, I thought this morning would be a good time to get pictures without people in them.

Old Town is about ten miles from me, and halfway through the drive it started raining, hard, even though the part of the sky I could see was partly cloudy with three huge rainbows.

I tried to get a good picture but it’s difficult to do when you’re driving 65 mph in the rain. Without focusing I was pointing the camera and clicking. I got only two decent pictures, neither of them worth writing home about but certainly good enough for blogging:

I suspect many of you see much better rainbow pictures on a daily basis. Here in San Diego we get excited if we see rain, much less rainbows!

I searched Google to see if there were any good pictures of the rainbow trio. Not a one. Then it occurred to me: It was 6:00 in the morning! No one except me was up! I could claim it was a rainbow quintuplet, get busy in Photoshop, post a rainbow quintuplet on Facebook, and probably no one would question it……..LOL

    Happy to hear you weren’t focusing Russel. Gads, these freeways are not to accommodating for any extra-ciricular activities. Just go, drive, fast, seems to be the mood of travel. You did get a couple of good ones there though.

    Coincidence – just a few minutes ago I was reading (?) a photography blog based in western Canada that had pictures of a triple rainbow. I had never seen one before.
