SkyWatch Friday

These photo were take in July in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The sunrises in the Outer Banks are amazing. I like the rainbow shot because the whole rainbow is visable. Both shots were taken from the balcony at the beach house that we rented.

I like how you got the WHOLE rainbow into the photo. I always seem to see on;y one side of one, never the whole thing. Happy Sky Watch!

The rainbow is very lovely, but I also love very much the soft hues of the sunset picture. Very soft and calming.

Love how the sun dances with the water - that is my favorite of the two. But the rainbow is stellar - what a complete shot. Very nice.

These are both really beautiful. I can't believe you got that perfect rainbow across the horizon like that. And that sun and the reflection of the water is gorgeous. Well done!
