Rainbows




How many of you as a kid tried to chase a rainbow to its end?


For more inspiration on rainbows, go here to the Bookshelf Muse.


Note: For the month of April during the A-Z Challenge I am pausing from my usual blogging theme of writing and social media tips. Instead I hope to share with you my photography. Much of it is inspired by the fabulous and helpful site, The Bookshelf Muse. Please check it out and enjoy.

  3. I'm sure most of us tried to do that. I think I was more looking for the leprechaun to chase, though. ;D

  8. Beautiful pics, Lynda! I think I have discovered what I love most about rainbows. In this age of everything on demand and you can have it as long as you want it...rainbows are anomalous to that mindset. They are unpredictable, and I can't recall a single time that people have failed to stop what they are doing to look at one when it appears. In my part of the world, when one appears, everyone still runs outside to see it. And I mean--they hurry, because rainbows are fleeting. It makes us treasure them and gives us a sense of appreciation for something we can't dictate.

  11. I do love rainbows! I always look for them after a storm.

    Last summer we saw a triple bow! It was awesome!

  12. Wow- I haven't seen a rainbow in a while. Once upon a time I would see a rainbow after every storm. I would run outside and just jump for joy! Nowdays they are hidden from site - at least mine.

    Rainbows are so beautiful! I don't know when I'll see one again, so thank you for providing the beautiful photographs, Lynda!

    Have a great weekend!

  18. I chased rainbows with a shovel in hand, convinced that the pots of gold really did exist. I also believed my mother that eating bread crusts would give me curly hair. And to this day I swear I saw the sandman. Gullible much? Not me.

  19. You really captured them well. Beautiful! With the weather in Scotland, they are fairly common here. Always nice to see though!
