Captured the following after a severe thunder storm blew by our area. DL with 18-55 mm Kit Lens

You can see a hint of the secondary rainbow above the primary rainbow



The other end of the rainbow--I think the pot of gold is in my neighbors' backyard!



Interesting looking clouds (looks like an oil paintaing). Not the best of lighting though.

Very nice...
I am pretty sure the third are called mammatus clouds. They often follow a particularly severe storm.

Nice rainbows, and fascinating clouds. I've never seen any like that (though I've seen pictures of them before). They certainly are interesting.

Thanks for the info on this type of clouds. First time I have seen (or heard of them). The storm was short lived but intense and accompanied by pea to marble sized hail. No damage around...just a great photo op!:-)

Jay, Those are great shots especially the color depth in the second rainbow. I believe there are always two rainbows, although not always visible, and the colors are opposite on each. Maybe someone who knows for sure could give us some info on that!

First off, nice pics and those clouds are something else, I have never seen anything like them in real life. And apparently double rainbows do have reversed colors:

Mammatus clouds, double rainbows, breeding habits of osprey, I think ya'll are trying to turning this place into something educational, aren't you?
