signs of promise

One day last week, I had the opportunity to shoot the rainbows over in the next paddock from my back yard garden. I am always amazed at the beauty of rainbows, no matter how many times I see them. I guess the Biblical promise that they represent is comforting.



The next two are the same photo with the hue changed. I thought it was interesting how much our eyes can't see.

Oh wow they are fabulous pictures. I don't think I have ever seen a rainbow in that much detail before. They always seem so optimistic don't they? Have a lovely weekend xx

Beautiful rainbow pictures. It's been a while since I've seen one. Maybe I just haven't been taking the time to look.

Have a great weekend

Your rainbows are gorgeous there is something magical you're right about a rainbow. I think it always takes me back to childhood memories of rainbow spotting.
Have a lovely weekend and may there be a crock of gold waiting for you at the end of your next rainbow!

Lovely! I love rainbows. Living in the woods with trees blocking the view, I seldom ever get to see a full rainbow so it's a treat to see yours.

Beautiful. I love rainbows.

Nicely done. Those are some of the best rainbow shots I have seen. So vivid. I love the rainbows in New Zealand. We didn't see them quite like this when we lived in the states.

Linda said...

So pretty! Nicely done!

Who doesn't love a rainbow? For me, they signify hope. I've only seen one rainbow where both ends are visible, and now you've captured one in a photo. Good job!

Gracie Saylor said...

Thanks for sharing your rainbow views...so pretty! I have found it difficult to capture rainbows in my photos, so I especially appreciate your success :)

That last picture is absolutely magical

Sorry I'm so late to visit - but it was a big 3 day holiday weekend here in the States. I stil wanted to pop by and I just wanted to tell you these photos are absolutely stunning!! I would SO LOVE to visit New Zealand one day. It looks breathtakingly beautiful from every photo I've ever seen of it. ;)
Blessings on the rest of the week ahead. xoxo
