Colors of the rainbow

Just before sunset on Easter Sunday a double rainbow appeared across the sky and seemed to come to rest at the end of our street.

View skies from around the world today at Sky Watch Friday.

Now two is being greedy. You got it all here with the composition of tree deer and those rainbows. My beloved purple just the icing on the cake.

At first I thought this was an 'African' photo! The tree looks so like the ones you often see dotting the savannas. Beautiful capture!!
