The double rainbow
Without a doubt, this is the most incredible sight I've witnessed since moving to Pensacola Beach. The fog and rain, which moved in earlier today, lifted momentarily and the sun came through just enough to set the island aglow.
I ran for my camera as a rainbow suddenly grew out of the Sound, arched the island, and ended on the beach below me. I watched in awe as an exquisite double rainbow began to form, then realized I was standing there, mouth agape, camera at my side, nearly missing a change to capture it.
Slowly the sun faded and the rainbow lifted from both sides, back into the sky, like the end of a shimmering, magical hologram .
