extra-special skywatch friday


this photo was taken from the hospital window on the day that our daughter was born. a rainbow is a special thing here in california (regardless of any religious symbolism) and we were extremely happy to have one in the sky on our daughter's birthday.

more skywatch friday can of course, be found right here.

This shot came out really wunderful, bw.

It almost looks like you caught two rainbows: A colorful one an a monotone bow on the right.

That is so sweet! The picture is beautiful on its own, but the story behind it is wonderful!

Through all of time, how could humans not take rainbows as good omens? That is indeed special.
