So there I was, up on the roof watering the plants, when I looked up and noticed that the clouds that had been gathering for the last couple of hours had started to clear. It was getting late in the day and I had been wondering if it would rain, but then the sun kind of peeped through below the clouds and lit up the Sugarloaf. I ran to get my camera. I know I bombard you guys with a lot of photos of my local monolith, but it is rather photogenic I’m sure you’ll agree.
So, I was just about to put my camera down and get back to the plants when I looked over towards the bay and noticed a weird patch of rainbow in the sky. It clearly wasn’t raining anywhere, yet here was a small patch of rainbow!
Not hugely remarkable – maybe there was a weird isolated shower over in that direction? Anyway, I kept watching and it started to get bigger and weirder…
Then I looked up! You’ll have to tilt your head for this next one, but hopefully you’ll get the basic idea.
As I asked myself “What does it mean?” and exclaimed “Double rainbow, all the way!”, I did a quick set of shots to be stitched together (this is a composite of around 6 photos – check out the tiny Sugarloaf at the bottom right to get a sense of the scale here):

As all this was going on, I glanced behind me and saw the whole other half of the sky had gone orange! What an amazing way to end the day.
