On my way back to the office from Waimea the sky was misted with a light rain and the sun produced this rainbow. I’ve seen these often in the stretch of the road south of of the Waimea-Kohala Airport on the Mamalahoa Hwy but it never ceases to amaze. Being from Oahu you rarely get to see both ends of the rainbow as there are too many buildings, trees and what-not. On the Big Island, especially in Waimea this is a common treat.
I noticed Chika also spied a rainbow on her last trip to west Hawaii. I couldn’t fit the entire rainbow either with my little camera so I took my ‘real’ camera out with a super wide-angle lens which also included the telephone lines. Sure I could have gotten out, ran to the fence to get rid of the lines but it was raining and I was in a hurry to get back to town.
