Rainbows and leprechauns

I made my way down some back roads this weekend on my photo hike, trying to stay ahead of the rain. I came upon a rainbow and nearly caused an incident pulling over to get a shot of it. Just as I got in place to snapped the photo, a second, paler arc formed, trailing a faint, but visible red line above the first bow.

No, I didn’t have an emotional breakdown that would be worthy of a viral YouTube video, but I will admit I got a little verklempt. It really was quite beautiful in person.

A few of these photos were taken at the beach in Navarre, and the last few were shot at Rocky Bayou State Park near Niceville.

Is it just me, or is a small face visible near the center top of this shot? Just a pair of eyes and the tip of a nose can be seen, like a tiny man is peering out from among the conks.

(Photos shot with a Nikon D60, using an 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle, 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, Nikon CoolPix S205 and/or iPhone4)
