A Rainbow ! – Weekly Photo Challenge ( Part 2)


When I read this week’s photo challenge theme , I realized that I did not really remember seeing a real rainbow in my entire life . And so  I consider it no less than a coincidence that only yesterday, this changed. On my way from Ootacamund ( popularly known as ooty – a famous tourist spot and hill station situated in the Nilgiris , the blue mountains of  South India) , where we celebrated the greater part of our weekend – shopping and eating, I got to see the first ever rainbow of my life !

It was about four thirty in the evening when we started our drive back  through the hilly terrain and beautiful tea estates, to get back to our home in Wellington.Unfortunately the weather had become rather unruly with trees uprooting due to the strong winds and  falling on the roads, blocking them.  We met a similar fate and had to revert back to take another route.

It was then that we spotted it, bright and colorful , the vibrant arch adorning the partially cloudy, partially sunny sky . My daughter jumped with delight at the very sight of it . Although it was raining outside, we decided to stop the car, while I got out with my camera trying to capture this stunning miracle of nature. But since I was afraid the lens would be damaged due to the rain , I had to take some quick, and rather hasty pictures of this natural wonder.

I related to my husband the coincidence of it as the weekly photo challenge this week also has the theme of  ROY G.BIV , the  rainbow colors ! So here are some shots for you to enjoy. The vibgyor running through the vast blue sky overlooking the tea plantations .

  1. Beautiful pics…I am sure you will find a lot of them in Ooty….My grandparents were settled in Ooty for a very long time…Still remember how we used to wait for the summer holidays to visit them. The early morning mists that barges into the kitchen…the peacocks and deers in the open backyard..the fireplace in the circular living room…the daily morning walk into the tea estates…they are beautiful memories, I so preciously cherish…and for most of it, I do not have any photographs…so thank you for taking me back the memory lane 🙂

    P.S Enjoy the stay to the fullest.

  2. And you know what ! I have seen a rainbow thrice but always without my camera, huh ! Can you imagine I could never click it even with my phone. I didn’t had a camera phone then. I wasn’t into photography till few years back. Lucky you Sweety, you have managed to not only enjoyed a beautiful site but also captured it so artistically.
