We had massive storms in Austin today. It rained all day long and I walked around downtown all day with my socks soaked. Have I ever mentioned how much I love having dry socks? I do. It’s fantastic. Anyway, it rained. Hard. I had to work late too and that’s never fun. I’m glad I did today though because had I rushed home the way I normally do, I would have never gotten the glimpse of a rainbow on my way home as the clouds were breaking. When I first saw it I thought “oh cool, a rainbow.” I wasn’t particularly thrilled about it and wasn’t planning to photograph it. However, I kept watching as I drove further south on Mopac and watched in amazement as the rainbow grew brighter and changed position with my perspective as I traveled. I knew that I couldn’t pass up the shot when I approached an overpass reaching over the highway. I exited and impatiently hurried the unreasonably slow driver in front of me out of my way and made it to a place where I could park my car. Grabbed the camera and tripod and started shooting away at what turned out to be a double rainbow reaching directly into the city. I took a few shots and I guess people saw me on the road below because more and more people started coming up to the overpass to take photos with point and shoots and camera phones. On my way home I stopped and grabbed a few photos out on Southwest Parkway that I plan to publish in the next few days. :) Hope you like it!
