Raleigh Rainbows

April 20th, 2008

The sun dipped under clouds just in time Sunday night to create a high arched rainbow over downtown Raleigh along with golden skies. Anticipating this, I waited at the Boylan Avenue Bridge, and nature didn’t disappoint.

Rainbow over downtown Raleigh A pot of gold was found at the intersection of Hillsborough and Dawson Raleigh rainbow Raleigh rainbow A rainbow surrounds downtown Raleigh Earlier “Anvil Crawler” lightning before the rainbow. After the sun set, nice colors remained. Looking west after all was said and done.

    Man I love these updates all the time. I can sit at my computer an extra few now everyday I visit your website looking for more. Now that there is, man its like internet Christmas! I really can’t say this enough, but your photos look awesome. I am saving one day to buy one of your photos to put in a huge frame to sit above my desk in the office. Probably when we get another tower that makes a impact on the skyline! Thanks Matt!
