My sisters came running from upstairs yelling, “Rainbow! Rainbow!“. My brother and I excitedly rushed with them out of the front door searching for a rainbow but we found nothing. Actually our father just called to tell us about the rainbow. Thinking that we might get a better view from our bedroom windows, we climbed upstairs but again no rainbow can be seen.
Not willing to give up, we ran past the kitchen (where my mother was anxiously screaming with the fear of us getting burnt) and went straight outside. This time, we’ve been rewarded with not one but two rainbows! One of them is unusually bright that we momentarily gaped in awe.
Hunting for a camera, again we ran past mum since the kitchen is the only entrance to the backyard. Unable to find dad’s new camera (Olympus FE4030), I grabbed dad’s Sony handycam and made my way outside. The second rainbow had now vanished from sight but the first is still amazingly bright. I snapped quite a number of photos and a will show them in my later post
Later, we found out that dad’s Olympus camera was actually with him -click here to view dad’s photos using his Olympus-It was in fact a perfect semi-circle rainbow; like the ones we’ve seen at the Niagara Falls.
