All of your rainbows are wonderful. The last rainbow is quite unique. It is almost as if a prism was placed in the sky. Beautiful suunto.

Oh! It's November 1st! I've been waiting so long!

Meteorological phenomenon contest-294777345_092c9dafed.jpg I remember going crazy trying to get to a spot without poles and lines before this spectacular scene went dark! It felt like the world was ablaze! This was very unusual in Buffalo.

Meteorological phenomenon contest-104893688_8348fb87d2.jpg This and the next shot were taken in Clarence NY and again, we had to stop the car to capture these.
