Double Rainbow in the Morning


Sky Watch Friday

Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

A couple of weeks ago I posted a photo of a late afternoon rainbow on the mountain east of my house.  Now, facing the other direction, here's an early morning double rainbow.  This is the west-facing view from my back garden.   Sometimes when it rains a bit very early in the morning, we get to see a rainbow like this one over the ocean.

This is gorgeous! I must live in too hilly a place to get to see rainbows. Your double rainbow is so clear! Very well captured. So glad you stopped by my Elk viewing this week. Happy SWF.
