Double Rainbow



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

While at Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, last May we had a storm one afternoon. It didn't last long, but as it was ending we saw a double rainbow. The lighting was a little strange, but I managed to capture this picture before the rainbow disappeared.
