Sunday evening of the Labor Day Weekend, I had kicked off my shoes and was sitting back watching the TV, when I looked out and noticed an unusual color to the sky. A brief rain shower had passed through and the sun was beginning to set which highlighted the bottoms of the dark rain clouds. And there was one of the most stunning rainbows that I have ever witnessed. But there was a second rainbow visible that was at least as good as most you ever see.
I rushed and got the trusty Canon and, still in my slippers, ran out into the damp yard and shot the included views of the rainbows. The rainbow was so well imprented against the darkened clouds that it could be seen from end to end. I was too close to catch the entire effect in one single shot and the clouds were fading on the Northern end so I just concentrated on the best views.
The weather has been cooling off now and we can expect morning lows in the 40's and afternoon highs in the 70's. Out in the forests, some of the maple trees are beginning to show early color. It won't be long now, guys will be putting the boats into storage and getting the ice fishing gear out. And I will be heading to Apache Junction
