It rained steadily for quite awhile the other day, but then in early evening the clouds in the west parted to let the sun through, while the rain moved on to the east.
The result was a brilliant rainbow. This was just one end of it; the other end was brilliant as well, but somewhat hidden, and there was a faint hint of a double rainbow.
Meantime, the sun was shining brilliantly on the trees to the east, showing them off in bright orange and red against the gray sky. A briefly passing moment of beauty.
