Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 22nd June, 2019)

Caught in the middle instead with a nice reflected glow!
If you see them from up in a plane they are a complete circle, which is why there is no end to a rainbow. My friend's late Mum loved rainbows, as I do, and I always think of her when I see them. I have never forgotten seeing three in a row over Melling's Flash in Ince when I was coming home from school on the 'bus, (50 years ago!). A lovely photo.
Talk about a moment in time..brilliant shot David.
The triple bows are very rare, Irene.
You get them only where there is a body of water to furnish an additional reflective pane at ground level, between the observer, and the apparent otherwise double bow.
The three rainbows weren't above each other priscus, as in the photo, but this was three rainbows, small in size, all in a row. I was 16 and coming home from school in Hindley to Ince on the old Corporation bus, where there used to be side seats near the front, so I was looking directly over Melling's Flash. I have never seen that since.
