Skywatch Friday- Rainbow at Lancaster, UK

The Rainbow at Lancaster, UK
I have never seen so many rainbows in such a short span of time ever before in my life. The week I was at lancaster I saw the Rainbow 4 times and photographed them on three occasions. The other three were even more fleeting but they were still rainbows.
And this is the sort of thing I enjoy, not this fighting over copyright. Sigh, was this beautiful rainbow phase two weeks before only?

Apologies for posting to the same Skywatch episode twice. I am tired, I need a break. I have written a mail to you at Skywatch.

I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
