Double vision

Ha no there are really 2 rainbows. You haven't actually been overdoing the eggnog...

Wonderful capture - love the double rainbows and the golden tones!
December 23rd, 2012  
Awesome......but someone explain to me why the colors of the second rainbow are reversed. :)
December 23rd, 2012  
Stunning! Double rainbow woot! Love the colours, the light and the amazing details in the trees. Beautiful and FAV!
December 23rd, 2012  
@noaceyet Oh I can't - might that be something to do with using a circular polariser or it is a real physical thing?
December 23rd, 2012  
Fabulous light - I love it when there's two rainbows. You have to be there just at the right time as they don't last long.
December 23rd, 2012  
@busylady Yep - fell over my boot lace running down the hill to try and get that tree in the shot :-)
December 23rd, 2012  
@noaceyet It actually explains it in Wikipedia. I hadn't even noticed myself!

Fab shot, rainbows are cool
December 23rd, 2012  
beautiful shot! love all the colors in int!
December 23rd, 2012  
Gorgeous! What a beautiful sight for you to behold and capture!
December 23rd, 2012  
Beautiful shot ... and now I know something about how rainbows and double rainbows happen.
December 23rd, 2012  
Beautiful shot, and thank you for the link to the Wiki article. This project is a great learning experience!
December 23rd, 2012  
When you mentioned to @busylady that you fell over your boot lace running, I thought maybe you were running to get the the ends of both rainbows to find the pots of gold. Beautiful warm light and capture of the rainbows!
December 23rd, 2012  
It's not too often you see suck a vibrant rainbow and you didn't wast the opportunity. A little known fact is that all rainbows are double but normally the second is very faint.
December 23rd, 2012  
Worth the fall!! fabulous vibrant colours, and now we all know there are always two!! thanks for that........wonderful
December 23rd, 2012  
What a beautiful shot. Great light!
December 23rd, 2012  
Beautiful capture -- I saw a double once in Telluride, Colorado years ago -- wonder what I did with the pictures?
December 23rd, 2012  
Glorious and fascinating link re the reversed double rainbow
December 23rd, 2012  
Beautiful capture and an extra bonus with the second rainbow.
December 23rd, 2012  
Double rainbow - very cool!
December 23rd, 2012  
Oooh nice! It's either good news that the sun is coming out or bad that the rain is coming. I can feel a lot of egg nog coming on. Normally at this point I'm making lists and checking them twice... But to be honest I just can't be arsed...

@judithg You get to the eggnog. Why not. Bit of trauma in our family. Just found out that mum and dad have had the norovirus, the ambulance out etc. Christmas may yet be cancelled!
December 23rd, 2012  
@fueast Oh no!! And I've just had one of my best friends on the phone in tears....her mum's cancelled because she's not well and they've had to get her mother-in-law into a home as an emergency. She feels terrible that she can't be with them but she's immobile and heavy and can't be left and they've also got two very little ones at home. They are all having Christmas lunch at the old folks home! Norovirus should be through the system by Tuesday but don't go catching it!!
December 23rd, 2012  
Whooaoooo, that's a double rainbow, ALL THE WAY, YEAHHHHHH!

December 23rd, 2012  
@reciprocity Thanks for the link. Someone was excited!
December 23rd, 2012  
@judithg Will it still be catchable by Tuesday do you think? Mum is making a great fuss about noone else getting it and is telling everyone not to come. I'm not that worried but if its going to create trauma maybe its better to hold off to wednesday. Not an expert on these things and how long they can be passed on.

Brill - love a double rainbow, makes up (a weeny bit) for the rain.
December 23rd, 2012  
Fabulous light and pretty rainbows, sorry about the nasty bugs.....hope they are gone in time for the festivities!
December 23rd, 2012  
Stunning!
December 23rd, 2012  
Lovely light - didn't hurt yourself I hope?
December 23rd, 2012  
@fueast I think on the wireless yesterday they said 48 - 72h after you feel better you could still be infectious. What day does that give you?
December 23rd, 2012  
@judithg hmm maybe boxing day...
December 23rd, 2012  
@automaticslim no - slight stumble was all
December 23rd, 2012  
Gorgeous!
December 23rd, 2012  
I love double rainbows - happy holidays!
December 23rd, 2012  
Another incredible photo...... Bloody norovirus, I think they have developed a vaccine for it, available next year (which doesn't help you now, I know) but hope for the future!
December 23rd, 2012  
@fueast You could go for obsessive hand washing and risk it.....
December 23rd, 2012  
Great catch, fabulous shot.
December 23rd, 2012  
Well defined rainbows and love the warmth of the land and tree color
December 23rd, 2012  
Great shot Alison. Wishing both you and your family a wonderful Christmas and the happiest of New Years. Enjoy
December 23rd, 2012  
Oh my goodness! It seems that you're always in the right place at the right time! You always capture the most incredible sights! This may be my all-time favorite! Fav.
December 23rd, 2012  
@cindymc Thanks! Was pretty lucky with this one this morning. There wasn't too much else on offer as the rain was on its way. A polariser was a real help too!
December 23rd, 2012  
Great double catch. Enjoy the break and eggnog
