A Fleeting Rainbow

There is nothing as fleeting as a rainbow, I find. It appears in the sky unexpectedly and, before you know it, the sky is once again blue and white. The last rainbow I saw, and managed to capture, was during our trip to Mauritius. We were driving in the car when my children suddenly called our attention to it.

We looked out and saw it faintly hovering over the land. It seemed almost hidden at times:

We enjoyed our brief glimpse of this natural gem. Once it had disappeared from the sky, we turned our thoughts to other activities.

Do you often get to see rainbows?

  1. A rainbow is like a miracle in plain sight. It never fails to leave me in awe. And I tend to stop what I’m doing instantly. Not too good when you’re driving a car en? 😉
    Great choice for the challenge, Colline! 🙂
