Great shots carol

I have seen double rainbows once or twice before, but never over such a large area, thanks for sharing.

Does this mean there are four pots of gold to be found this time

Wanaclick; it indeed was good fortune to witness this double; especially since both ends touched the ground. It was absolutely the most perfect double rainbow I've seen.

It was still stormy, as you can see by the clouds coming down thru the rainbow.

JJ, it sure was. I was sitting inside, & glanced outside, & saw part of the double, so grabbed the camera. I was so excited to see the complete arch of it!
