Horses and Rainbows

Horses and Rainbows.
Yesterday was our turn to go down to Angels on Horseback and do their evening feeding. There was a storm coming in as we drove down, and it was a steady rain while I gathered the horses to come into the barn. When we finished feeding them and were letting them back out to the pasture, I noticed a nice break in the clouds to the west. The sun dropped below the cloud line and I immediately looked back to the east. I saw the one of the most vibrant double rainbows I have ever seen. I ran to the car and grabbed the camera, remember I always try to carry a camera with me, and then ran to the hill below the horses. I wanted to capture a few images of both the horses and the barn if possible. I thought I would have only a few minutes to capture images, but it felt like the rainbow lasted for 10 minutes or more. One of the horses, Two Hawk, decided he wanted a close up and walked down to where I was standing. After giving him a nice scratch behind his head, he posed for me. I have never seen such a vivid and more vibrant sky and rainbow than the one I saw last night. The blues in the sky were so intense it was surreal. On a side note, I love LCD screens that tilt like my Canon M6. It allowed me to hold the camera inches above the horse poo and still capture the image, a couple years ago I would have been forced to being doing a load of laundry as soon as I returned to the house, due to having to get down to that angle of view. This was truly being in the right place at the right time, but also being prepared by having a camera with me.
