The skies on the eastside are clearing out just in time for the official sunset. It's a beautiful one as the Sun lowers into a clear sky under falling rain. Go check it out before it's too late.

Wish I could get some but I'm house bound and wouldn't make it to any waters or parks in time.

(Paging Bullet, Immediate request).

Here's the irony, the best photos come when there's no access into cherishing them. Now the sun is setting behind a distant thunderhead from a thunderstorm N of Grand Rapids(that may rotate through here later this evening)

Beautiful rainbow looking towards CoPa from Brush Park. It is actually shooting up from the WaterBoard building towards the east.

I'm not exactly sure what that means but it sounds like very good Zen and "cherish" is such a beautiful word.

Imagine a world where each human being "cherished" each other human being. :-)

Couldn't really pick up the second rainbow, but it was there.

That's a beautiful rainbow. Thanks for the picture Tetsua. I vaguely see the second rainbow fading away.

Tetsua, that's a beauty but I think this one inspires me even more. It's hard to imagine a guy not being moved by this.

Tetsua, I can also detect the secondary rainbow in your photo. Tertiaries are possible too.

I'd guess rainbows carry a metaphorical meaning especially for Detroit. Let that be a good thing. :-)

Tetsua -- nice pic. I also saw the double rainbow last night, over by the Mack/Conner bridge. Probably the most intense rainbow I've ever seen. The brighter of the two rainbows also cycled through the spectrum a couple of times... pretty amazing.

Ndavies, I sure could learn a thing or two about taking photos from you! Sweet sunset, and Vulture. Thanks as well to Urbanize for the kind words:-)

I was taking a nap in my Lafayette Towers apartment. When I woke up the foot of the rainbow was literally right outside my window. It was fascinating, as I had never seen such a feat before. Sadly, there was no pot of gold. :-(

I love the pix. They all show the TRUE beauty of God's creations. BTW Ndavies, I didn't think vultures were in this part of the country (more like in the southwest is where they reside), thanks for clearing that up. And 2 Tetsua, I saw the 2nd rainbow in your pic-just barely but I did see it-it was somewhat transparent in front of the one we could see. I plan to post some pix on this site one day also. I recently opened an account with flickr.com
