This past Wednesday we had typical Connecticut spring weather - sunny one minute, rainy the next. I, of course, chose "rainy the next" to go to the grocery store. It was still raining when I came out of the market, but the sun was shining brightly. Couldn't spot the rainbow at first, but then I drove over the I-95 overpass and nearly wrecked the car! Never have I seen a wider, more beautiful rainbow! There were cars behind me. And nowhere to pull over. DAMMIT! I had to let the moment go! No photo!
I rushed to Saugatuck Shore, above, which is a wide open photographic kind of area as you can see, to try to capture that magnificent sight. Sad to say, it wasn't to be. Though the sky was still just loverly, only a fragment of the rainbow remained. (If you look really hard, you can see its remanent in the center, above.)
Twice now I've had simply incredible/impossible photo opportunities presented to me that have proved impossible to capture, and it's frustrated me to no end! But the wonderful thing about this life is that there will always be another incredible/impossible moment to be experienced. I just hope I'm there. With my camera. And I can conveniently stop the car. (Third time's the charm, right??)
