Not entirely how sure how many times I’ve seen rainbows. From second grade through high school our family dabbled in Wyoming wherefrom about June to September you had rainbows nearly every day. Sometimes doubles. Sometimes triples.
The physics are nothing special but the results always are. A spectacle. We stop what we are doing and rush to see if the rainbow is complete. Is there a second? How long will it last. Should I shoot it with my phone, my camera? Both?
The rainbow won’t translate here. But you will get an idea. Nothing substitutes for the feel, the smell, the sound and the combustion of cloud, wind, rain, and sun. For that, you have to be there. And ya, there was gold at the end but I blew it hiring Van Halen to play at my birthday party.
