Waiting for the unicorn

I always see the dramatic, epic, sweeping photos that The Pioneer Woman takes of rainbows down on the range. Crazy to admit...I think, up 'til now...I've never seen a rainbow in the urban jungle of Chicago:/

This afternoon, the skies opened, and rained down Holy Hell on us:O It was dark...it was fierce...and it was scary.

I put the kidlets down for bed, and a few moments later, I heard The Little Man talking rainbows...

Rainbows? There's no such thing as a rainbow in Chicago:/ Sure enough, I went upstairs...looked out his window...and there it was...a rainbow! It might not be as impressive as the ones on the great plains...but I'll take it...now bring on the unicorns;)

  3. I can't imagine Chicago never has rainbows..

    Beautiful picture and like Heather I can't take a good rainbow pic either. Unicorns on the other hand are easy, just have some candy corn to feed them ;)

  5. I have a couple of spectacular photos of rainbows here in Buenos Aires.
    It is difficult to photograph Light.
    I also have a really nice rainbow from Portland Oregon. I grabbed the camera, took some photos and was pleasantly surprised that anything actually showed up !

  8. Alexis may need to teach you how to find a rainbow. She's a pro. Truly. Every time it rains, even if it's a bad storm, she starts looking for the rays of sun poking through so she can follow them to the rainbow.
