July 27 - Rainbow

Driving back from Lillington I stopped near Troy for gas and saw this rainbow across the street.  It was already fading by the time I got my camera out to snap this.

Later, on the road I saw a double rainbow that met the ground on both ends.  The "main" rainbow was so vibrant and solid that it looked like sherbert.  I had never seen a rainbow that looked so solid before and I desperately wanted to get a photo of it, but there was no place to stop.

To top it off, the whole time I was watching it I was listening to Radiolab from NPR and they were talking about how we perceive colors, such as in rainbows.  I can't express how amazed I was a the coincidence I was enjoying.  It was a great show and I may never look at colors the same way again.
