PSF - Happy New Year!

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

On Christmas morning as I was gathering up the shredded gift wrap, I looked out the window and saw the most incredible rainbow forming over the neighborhood. 

Of course I kicked off my fuzzy slipper, grabbed the camera and ran out back.  I barely had enough time to get the lens cap off, adjust the exposure and snap a picture before the rainbow had vanished.
There is something so magical about a rainbow.  It is one of those rare treats in nature that you can't touch and can only enjoy for a few split seconds before it is gone.  It kind of takes you breath away doesn't it?

Here is hoping that you all have a magical 2009!

Great picture! I'll borrow your sign of the things to come in '09 instead of mine (check out my quick poist from earlier today). Yours is W-A-Y better!

We rarely see rainbows here. In Hawaii, I think I saw a rainbow a day- not joking!! Even double rainbows!! Once, right after I learned to drive, my sister and I chased a rainbow right to the foothills of the mountains in Albuquerque. Fantastic!
Great shot, friend!!

hahaha 'the only girls in America' who don't have a Wii ;) I almost felt bad for my kids because we have the 'boring house'! We move so much we just don't have a lot of stuff so I figured the Wii would be a good incentive for their friends to come HERE for a change ;)

Happy New Year!

I think part of what makes a rainbow so special is how fleeting it is. Great picture.
