Double Rainbow Panorama


During a small rain storm, I happened to look outside close to sunset and noticed that the light seemed good for the possibility of a rainbow in the east. I went to my east-facing backyard and was stunned at the sight of this beautiful double rainbow. My backyard is not the best settig for landscape photographs, but I just had to take this one as this was the first time I've seen the second bow make a complete arc. I ran inside to get my children and camera and here is the result. It's a four-shot panorama that I stitched together using PTgui. Enjoy. . .
