    If the rainbow is real this is one of the best images I've seen on Flickr. Either way, well done!

    "if the rainbow is real" :-)

    my son the philosophy major would say "so, what do we mean by "real?"

    but I'm an engineer.

    Yes, it was real. I saw it with my own two eyes. Interestingly enough, I played with my polarizer to see how much it emphasized it/deemphasized it, and it makes a huge difference, depending on rotation.

    thanks for the kind words, btw. I actually wondered if people would assume I'd added it, since it seems pretty fortuitously located.

    I will note that I guessed a rainbow would appear in that location more than an hour ahead of time (based on previous experience) and drove 30 miles to be there when the sun got to the right angle. It was very nice to find out I'd guessed right.

    In my opinion, it's not event he best picture I've seen on Flickr in the past hour, but the compliment is still very much appreciated!

    thanks, Michael!
