Double rainbow

A bit stormy part of the day yesterday, and when it cleared for a moment, we here in my part of town were greeted by a double rainbow. The dome you see is Belgrade's new sports arena, where the Eurovision Song Contest was recently held.

This is astounding. What kind of camera do you use? Did you edit this photo at all?

Thanks! :]

Wow! A double rainbow. That is really rare. Beautifully captured. Did you see any of the Eurovision Contest? I saw a few on Youtube & liked the ones that were sung in the country's language.

Hello, and thank you for your compliments. I don't retouch my photos in a major way, just sharpen and perhaps lighten or darken. I use a Nikon D50 with various lenses.

Bibi
I love rainbows. I think it is to do with my mum brainwashing us.
It was a nice brainwash: she used to say that rainbow is a time for reconcilliation so my brother and I, who were in a permanet conflict when we were young, had to make friends whenever we saw a rainbow.

This stunning. Not just the double rainbow, but how each one is at either end of the dome. A most unusual image.

Eurovision Song Contest was hilarious
as always.

OMG, that is a gorgeous photo! What an excellent capture.

I remember the Eurovision Song Contest very well. It was quite popular when I was a kid.

Yes, you did say it was raining :) Wonderful capture!!

Beautiful image! Rainbows can be very difficult to capture. See Chuck Pefley's rainbow at "One a Day, Mostly Seattle" for his Sky Watch post. If you don't have the link, "Louis" has it in the right side bar of SF Bay Photo.

There was an entire Japanese TV special about a woman who went to Hawaii to spot a double rainbow because the seeing of one (one? a pair? ah, them?) is said to bring a special kind of auspiciousness or something.

On her last day in Hawaii she glimpsed a tiny piece of a second arc.

Then, not so long after, as I left the clinic where I had a Lasik operation, you guessed it; and in brilliant Southern California sunshine.

Hmm. Looking at your photo I wonder if there is a pot of gold somewhere in that high rise.

Hi,
I'm impressed with the whole atmosphere of your photo...reminded me of a theatre stage, but cannot see what's on, "west side story"?..
