Giant Double Rainbow

I dunno... when I was kid, I was outside way more often than as an adult, but even as a child or a teenager, rainbows were incredibly rare.

However, ever since about the year 2000 I see at least 1 or more starting in Spring. And, since about 2004-5 I see so many per year. They are much more common in the Spring time, I usually see about 1 or more during Summer & Fall, but since about 2010 I have seen them in Winter virtually every year, just not always whilest I have my DSLR, let alone a camera phone at all.

I have also noticed that I have seen rainbows in the evening around dusk, which I found unusual, since there shouldn't be enough light.

Anyways, I have seen & photographed just SO many rainbows that I'm starting to get bored... I wouldn't have even shot this if my spouse hadn't myself & my daughter all riled up because this one was exceptionally gigantic. Which excited my sense of challenge in trying to capture it.

It was actually a double rainbow, but didn't quite photograph the 2nd rainbow, which is a reflection of the original, an optical illusion.

I like to try to capture the rainbows as best I can without post processing later... that's kind of the challenge. Most everyone else is Photoshop needy...
