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.
