december rainbow

After a week of torrential rain, the sun broke through the clouds yesterday afternoon and a massive rainbow appeared over Los Angeles. Actually, there were two rainbows, one stretching impossibly over the other.

I first heard about them through Facebook and Twitter friends and hurried outside when I saw one arcing behind the house. This positively unreal photo of the rainbow illuminating a church was taken at the end of our street--I ran a couple of blocks in the rain to capture it, so I was literally chasing a rainbow! The sky was still dark and stormy here, but just a head turn away there were glimpses of cerulean blue sky and sun. Pretty awesome.

We aren't quite done with the rain and flooding yet, but it was amazing to be rewarded with such a gorgeous sight after so many dark days. Hopefully a sign of more good things to come.
