A second helping of “between,” An antique store near Lincoln, Illinois, seems to be situated between fantasy and reality. The rainbow below bridges sun and storm.
Advent is a time of looking forward — preparing one’s self for the feast of Christmas. However, after last night’s vigil Mass for the final Sunday of Advent, looking back paid off too.
For almost 24 hours, nature had soaked the state in a deluge that saw nearly 8 inches of rain fall in parts of the Arkansas Delta. The same system also spawned tornadoes in other parts of the state. When the heavy rain finally stopped, those leaving church were welcomed by a fiery orange sunset. En route to the parking lot, paused on the steps to take a shot or two of the sunset with my iPhone (bottom photo). But something made me look back. And there over the church, the sky glowed with a luminous double rainbow.
Birds, rainbows, bunnies, baby deer. Sure, they’re cliche, but they’re cliche for a reason.

In contrast to the monochromes of our last post and today’s Isaac-leaden skies, here are two shots with a little more color.
Hardwoods don’t have a monopoly on fall color. Sometimes, you just have to look a little more closely at the landscape.
Days of drought were interrupted by a pair of popup thunderstorms. The light from the setting sun hit the mist left by the storm creating a beautiful yellow light. It was a given I’d run out with the camera. The picture hardly captures the beauty of the sunset. Took the shot and turned to go and download it to the computer. That’s when I looked east and was stunned by a beautiful double rainbow.
