OCTOBER 1 2009.

This picture was taken from the balcony of my house. The thundering was amazing, so loud!! I was closing the windows when I saw the rainbow.

For us, here in Venezuela, this is very bad. Two days ago, on September 12, 2009; it started to rain just like this, very hard. At 3:36 p.m. we had a earthquake, very strong. It was of 6.3 degree.
The rain itself has nothing to do with the earthquake. But, just 2 days apart!!! Very scary!!. We are very scared and we just relate them together.
But for sure, it tell us that we have to take care of our planet. Don’t overheat it!

For me, there are many interesting things on the picture.
1. You can see the storm. How dark, and the rain in the background, and to the left side of the building, on the base of the rainbow.
2. At my place it was raining, but just starting. You can actually see the drops on the top half of the picture.
3. The building on the left, at the base of the rainbow it is just about 8 blocks away from here. To its left you can barely, barely see a big light tower from a big stadium just 3 blocks away from that building.
4. The best part!! Above that building, on the left side; almost at the top left corner of the picture you can see there was forming another rainbow.

    Elatan, you mistakenly say you are not a writer – but your detailed and thoughtful description on the right, and your journal about being there on 9/11 prove otherwise. You have a great gift in helping the reader to also “be right there” and I thank you for what you have written. This is a wonderful photo as well. I can almost feel the raindrops! ~ Pat

  • Thank you very much Pat for your kind words. I really appreciate your comment. Thank you as well for the favs, specially for I WAS THERE. I DO REALLY appreciate it!!!
