Continuing on Rainbows ;)

I had been to The Netherlands over the long weekend and had a whale of a time. We were a group of 12 chaps on the Invasion of Holland Mission ;). Explored the country side as well as the urban areas of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Delft. Was not able to access the internet [hence netheir could blog nor bloghop], got voluntarily cut off from the world [didnt even care abt the Ashes score.]. Let me put a seperate post for that.

Now, I found the comment from Sundaresan in my earlier post, pointing to details on double rainbows. On going through this, i found the 'half circle' rainbow.

And voila, i have seen a perfect semi circle rainbow[horizon to horizon], and that too standing right under the Eiffel Tower. :)

Hmm.. this rainbow shooting seems to be a very nice hobby, but very much dependent on the climate.

Enjoy them! Sorry i couldnt capture the whole half circle, so have taken it in two quarter circles. [Photos taken on The Maundy Thursday evening, 2005]

Ganesh, WA, Uma
Thanks!, I got a bit busy over the week. Started with the Amsterdam trip now!

Arjuna,
Definitely yes, we shud be able to make it the coming weekend to meet here.

Sunderesan,
The flop side of sighting a rainbow, is that, rain has just spoilt ur day, as it did for me in Greenwhich and in Paris. :(

Krishna,
Yes, a rainbow is alway refreshing...

Ram,
Thanks.. Trying to get a better camera.

Chakra,
yes, the trip was good, but very tiresome.

Priya,
Netherlands was the only place that was agreed by a gang of friends. Every one of us had seen one place or other except this one.

Nithya,
Thanks!!

Sen,
hmm.. Nice place but dint do much 'Enjai maade' though :D.

kavitha,
Thanks, as i said, to get lucky and spot a rainbow, it shud also be unlucky to get caught up in rain.

Siddharth,
Nice title :D. Surely will visit ur blog and read it. I am infact a regular at urs, but was quite busy over the week. Need to catch up.
