February theme day: Umbrellas


This is the piece de resistance of my recent visit to Niagara Falls. The wintery mists made conditions perfect for a beautiful rainbow which covered us all like a giant colorful umbrella!

It's the first of the month again which means bloggers from around the world are putting up their take on this month's theme. For more umbrellas from around the world click here. And for more skies, visit Skywatch.

This is mesmerizing. It doesn't even look real. Between the rainbow going through the tower and the iced over trees...it's magical. Bravo!

Oh well done Halcyon, you can't beat a 'mother nature' umbrella, looks amazing with the tower appearing out of the mist.

EG CameraGirl said...

I haven't seen the falls like this is such a long, long time. I love the rainbow!

Gunn said...

What a SUPERB image!!

Marie said...

It almost looks like the rainbow goes in FRONT of the space needle, which I'm sure it doesn't, but it gives it an upclose feel. Wow! Beautiful!

This is outstanding! The colors are gorgeous. You got a beautiful clean color background rather than the creepy yellow-gray I get with some of my rainbow photos. I love the contrast of all that deep snow on one side.

Hilda said...

Oh wow, this is absolutely wonderful!

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
