Boy, this was an awesome sight tonight. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a double rainbow this bright before. From my house I watched some big clouds roll over Lake Washington that started to change colors as the sun set behind me. Then, it started to rain real hard and I knew this could be the perfect receipe for a rare rainbow sighting. I grabbed my camera bag, jumped in the car and bolted to the top of the hill. Within a minute a double rainbow appeared as bright as could be. I snapped away as the rain poured down on me – but I didn’t care because no one else was at the lookout, and I knew I had a one of a kind photo in the tin!

And one more photo…

These rowers came to a quick hault to stare at the amazing sight.

A double rainbow! What does it mean?! Naturally, I couldn’t help but think of Yosemite Bear as I was taking photos…
