|This is not an every day sight. In ten years, this is the only rainbow I've seen at this beach. Makena does get its share of rain, maybe more than other beaches in South Maui. It even rains here when other beaches a few miles up the road are sunny! It also drizzled while the sun was shining - we call this liquid sunshine. By the way, to see more rainbows, spend some time in upcountry Maui or the North Shore. Here's one of my favorite rainbow posts.|
I wish that the rainbow was more vibrant in this photograph. It's a late afternoon rainbow, so the afternoon light is saturated, which kind of makes the rainbow pale by comparison. This is one of those times where real life is so much better than photos. But maybe that's how it should be. The rainbow ends somewhere over the water, so there's a pot of gold in the ocean. If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you in Arizona.
