Gratitude Monday - Somewhere Under The Rainbow

Rainbows are fine things.
I've always enjoyed them and been grateful for their promise of leprechauns and magic and maybe all the other special things we have in life but forget about because we've forgotten how to see.
What do you think about when you see a rainbow?

This is from a recent trip out west. It's across the road from the Nordegg.
I played with it a wee bit.
Camera filters are fun and good for the creative side. They can bring out the stuff we've forgotten to see.

Rainbows, to me, a like a message from the great power of life...whatever that is...patting me on the back after tears saying "there, there..."

It's a bridge, from here to somewhere.
Now if I could only find out how to get to the somewhere....
You capture shots we all want to....you must like living close to those mountains!!

Rainbows never lose their appeal! And the urge to follow it to the end to find that pot of gold is always strong!

Actually, I think about Newton's obsession with the number seven, sticking Indigo in between Blue and Violet when he was playing with prisms. Unless I've got the story muddled, as often happens.

Mainly I just think "Pretty!"

Tabor, rainbows as comfort is beautiful.

Dawn, an adventurous outlook. Yes, I sure do love living here.

Bag Lady, it's all I can do to not go rainbow-chasing.

Mary Anne, you made me laugh. And now I have to go sort out Newton's obsession.

You could sit in that photo for hours. Beautiful!

Lovely photo. What do I think about when I see a rainbow? My kids. It took four years until I was able to conceive my first born. The day I found out I was finally pregnant, there was a most intense, vibrant rainbow. They've been a personal, happy reminder to me ever since.

Thanks, David.

Hilary, what a wonderful story.

Rainbows just make me think of joy, and how much of it there is for the taking, if we only look.

Leah J. Utas said...

So true, Messymimi.

How very lovely. Rainbows make me appreciate all over again that I can see, in colour and that I am able to breathe in the fresh just washed smell of the earth.

Living in the desert, I especially delight in rainbows because they're such a welcome colorful contrast to the arid earth - where it still may be dry on the ground because the rain evaporated before it got all the way down...

A rainbow is awe inspiring. And I do believe that it signifies hope. And other good things.

You are definitely having fun with all your camera gadgets, aren't you?! And you must be learning lots because your pictures are really good.

Leah J. Utas said...

Very good points, Reb.

Ron, oh my. I can feel the dry in your words.

Cheryl, thanks. I'm having a blast.
