Circular Rainbow
December 6, 2008

This is not the most artistic capture, but it was a fascinating moment I was lucky to get. We were flying to Monroe, LA, from DFW. There was a thin layer of clouds below us. The sun was somewhere behind us and was reflecting off of something on the plane and projecting a rainbow on the clouds below us. I think that was what was happening. Just as I was about to snap a picture of the circular rainbow the shadow of the airplane passed through the center of the rainbow. It was only there for second or two. I just happened to have my camera up and ready to capture it.
