Double rainbow at Como Park

39253Spring is an unsettled time of year in the upper Midwest.  Our weather comes from all four directions, oftentimes colliding over Minnesota.  Last week we had a beautifully sunny and warm day.  Until about 5:00pm, when the clouds rolled in, the winds picked up, and it started to rain.  I headed to my office to get some work done, not realizing that the front was moving through quickly and it would be followed by clearing.  About 7:30 the clouds parted from the western horizon, creating a beautiful low directional golden light.  With the rain still to the east a vivid double rainbow emerged.  I grabbed my camera and hurried to nearby Como Park and the McNeely Conservatory.  Luckily I arrived before the rainbow disappeared, thanking the weather and photo gods for presenting such a stunning and vibrant display.

    Stunning scene, I like that you incorporated the reflection rather than pull wider and higher.
