I go back and forth with myself every morning on should I bring my camera to work with me or not... this week I've left it at home as I knew I'd have a lot to do at work and shouldn't be tempted to play.  Today was no different... I left it at home.
That was a huge mistake!

The weather this morning was just okay... gray cloudy skies, looked like it could rain at any moment, not too hot, not too cold.  As I am sitting at a stoplight in Elk River I look over to my left (which would be <-- that way) I see the bottom part of a rainbow.  I follow it up with my eyes and am able to follow it all the way over to the other side!  So that is kind of silly... but listen, I've never seen a full rainbow before!  It's always been cut off at the top, so it's just two colorful bands arching into the sky towards each other but never touching.  Today my life changed.

I wish I had my camera, granted I probably wouldn't have been able to get it out and get a shot off before the light turned green... but I could have pulled over.

The colors were so vibrant!  It was absolutely the PERFECT rainbow... and now all I have is a memory of it.

Have you ever seen a full and vibrant rainbow?

I saw a complete double rainbow on 420 a few years recorded it!
PS I always keep my camera in my purse, you just never know!!

Nope, never!

Since I started blogging, I ALWAYS have my camera on me. I'm so glad, because it's great to document those unexpected memories.

They're pretty common over here, mostly because it is ALWAYS RAINING, so the chances of seeing a rainbow increase dramatically..

I take my camera everywhere - it's like a fifth limb!

I'm trying to get into the habit of taking my camera with me. There have been too many times that I WISHED I had a camera and didn't.

I love this. I have seen a full, vibrant rainbow before.. and they are so amazingly beautiful! I never seem to be able to capture it perfectly though.
