Rainbow Photo

Thursday, September 16th, 2004

I need to be away from my computer a lot for the next week or so. I’m going back and looking for photos that I took but never posted for lack of space.

This one is very recent. It is a rainbow I photographed on Sunday, on the way home from Wheatland Music Festival. We were on our way south on the highway just past Mount Pleasant (home of Central Michigan University, where I went to school and where both my Godchildren are studying right now). Notice how flat the land is here. Mount Pleasant has no mountain. In fact, it has precious few hills as well. Who knows why they named it that, but it is truly a pleasant place, mountain or not.

I was pretty glad that the rain started after all our camping gear was in the car and we were safely under a roof! The rainbow made it even easier to take that rain.

It’s too bad the photo has a highway in it rather than rolling hills, but check out that color! It was magnificent, and stretched without a break from east to west. Wonderful. As much as I complain about being out in nature, there is nothing man-made as beautiful as a rainbow. I am sure I’ll never lose the wonder of the first rainbow I ever saw. It was life-stopping at the time, took my breath away.

I hope you enjoy my photo.
