Skywatch Friday - what a gift!

Getting soaked by the open door, I decided I'd best close it. There, on the other side of the lake, a rainbow. Grabbing my camera, I ran out into the rain. The video is noisy with wind and rain.




skywatchThe sunset was striking, too! What a treat.

Nice shots Jen.....rainbows are truly a blessing.....I've seen them even in the winter....they don't do a full circle for the ice crystal don't go that far up in the atmosphere I guess!!!!!

Oh you will miss your lake when you go....I know we sure miss our little Palette Lake....it was truly a gift to live there for 14 years!!!!!

Sorry you got soaked, but glad you did in a way. We might not have seen these incredible shots if yo had not. Very pretty place.

I haven't seen a rainbow yet this summer! But with the heat and humidity, I have not had the curtains open, either...

What glorious skies. Love the rainbow! I'd probably have run out as well. I've stayed in Minden and Haliburton but not the Muskokas - beautiful spot to love in!

The rainbow truly was a gift and the sunset a great finale. I'm sure you're going to miss your place in paradise.
