Same Rainbow . . .

Same double rainbow - other side. What struck me about this was how vibrant the colors are. These photos, althought good, doesn't do it justice.
I wonder if Steven Spielberg was in town?

Wowsers, you got some serious cumulo-nimbus mammatus going on there too. What a sight! : )

That reminds me, I have to run to the store and get a dictionary.

Todd said...

Dayle, did you take all of those? Very nice.

BTW: mammatus - breast cloud, low hanging cell or pouchlike portions of clouds.

Todd:

This question may be reflective of some deep rooted paranoia in my psyche -- did you ask if I took these pictures because:

a) you doubt my ability to operate a camera?

b) you fancy me one on those guys who peruse the internet looking for pictures to pass as his own?

or

c) you seriously doubt my journalistic integrity?

Yes, I did take them.

Interestingly enough -- These were taken from Capital Blvd facing Hwy 311. Given the angle it is quite possible that the major rainbow touches down on Wal-Mart and the minor one touches down on Academy Sports, so the saying is true, there is a pot of gold at the end.

Todd,

I also took the photo that I use for the banner at the top of the page. The Smokies in the fall. Hard to beat.

Set aside your understandable, yet none the less annoying, paranoia for a moment and learn how to accept a thinly veiled compliment. I don't give them out very often in general and even less often to you, so don't make me spell it out. I'm not willing put THAT much effort into it.

Here it is, the closest thing I can manage to an actual compliment: those pictures are surprising, they look just a little above what I would have expected from you.

I know - I was just trying to be funny.

My real talent with a camera shines in my fantastic smoky mountain and colorado vacation photos which I will post from time to time so I can build up a photos link on this site.

BTW, Best in Show came on the other day and I thought about you. I assume you love it, too.

awesome! I go to a Calvary Chapel and we have a small group called Art 4 the HEart. It's writers, painters, photographers, musicians and such who get together to share our creativity, pray, etc. You might like to visit out blog sometime? www.art-4-the-heart.blogspot.com and www.art-4-the-heart-edge.blogspot.com
I see your art in the sidebar (very cool). Trying to get our artists to share on the blog. So far it's just the photographers and writers participating. Such fun creating together for God's glory. Glad I stumbled onto your blog by way of Decompose:)

Janet,

I will definitely visit those blogs. Thank you for the heads up.

The wierd thing is that I have never considered myself very artistic. It just doesn't come naturally to me. So I finally decided to explore that side of myself to see if it even existed.

So I learned to play guitar - played in a couple of bands and led worship for my youth group. Learned to paint - sold a few. And now, I'm currently trying to get my first novel published. Oh, yeah, I love photography, too.

Isn't that funny? Lately, at my church, the artists have been popping out of the woodwork. So many people are secretly creative. You know, they write, but of course assume they are no good and for fear of rejection or ridicule, show no one. But God seems to be encouraging people to use the talents He gave. We're all creative, right? Made in His image and all. Nice to meet you, fellow scribe.
