Sky Watch Friday - Season #4 - Episode #11

Sky Watch Friday this is the place. Please check out the site and link in if you wish to participate. There were a lot of people with beautiful Sky photos last week. You can link in from my side bar or at the start of this post. You can link a 2:30 PM EDT. SWF is run by Klaus, Louise, Wren, Sandy and myself.

This is a look at a dreary morning sky, the promise of a full arch rainbow was there and rain came later in the day. This was the same day which I caught the big Walleye in the next post.
My boat camera has a hard time ding justice to the large rainbow but Lake Hodgson was a blessing to me that day. This lake is my pot of gold.
There are a lot of great skies to visit above.

It's so high and delicate, really beautiful! Congratulations on the 'big fish story' too -- it sounds like a great trip out!

Woody said...

Great Photo, love the rainbow shot.

Daryl said...

Okay .. another rainbow .. I am so tired of all you show offs and your rainbows .. NYC is rainbow free due to the buildings that clog the sky and keep me from joining the club

Carletta said...

Rainbows are beautiful no matter how faint - nice shots!

Great Walleye and a nice string of fish.

Photo Cache said...

does a rainbow signify good catch? that's a big fish, how did you cook it?

I agree with Carletta. Rainbows are great no matter how faint. Thanks for sharing and hosting the skywatch friday.

I caught me some rainbows too! Not the fish kind though ;-) Great shots and I also love your little chipmunk.

Tufa Girl said...

Looks like you could just troll on over and pick up the pot of gold right out of the water. ;D

George said...

With your personal pot of gold, you shouldn't worry about your boat camera. You got the rainbow -- now concentrate on enjoying that pot of gold.

Lily Hydrangea said...

still beautiful even with the grey! Nice catch FG.

Tricia said...

Dreary or not, you still captured a rainbow & you that means, you can't lose! Very cool!

On the Lake fishing and a rainbow. Doesn't get much better. Still getting tomatoes and green peppers from garden and even picked a few strawberries. I don't know why I'm getting them now

Pretty!
I just love a rainbow!

I love rainbows. Great shots.

Jan K. said...

Wonderful! It seems I haven't seen a rainbow for ages ... Thanks for sharing this one.
The picture in your header is absolutely fantastic!
Enjoy your weekend.

Mary said...

Wonderful! The rainbow helps make the gloom better. We've had nothing but rain most of the week and no rainbow. But obviously it was great weather for fishing!

Oz Girl said...

Dreary or not, a great capture of the ghost-like rainbow! :) Have a wonderful Ohio weekend.

Darla said...

You know, I haven't seen a rainbow in a long time.......mmmmmm.

This was our day yesterday and again today. We did get much needed rain yesterday (1.5 inches) and more today.

charlotte said...

Ah, what's more beautiful than a rainbow over a lake! It was a good omen for ya. :)

TCKK said...

I can see it. Beautiful. I love rainbows.

Wren said...

I like the idea of the lake being the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. What a neat way to think of both water and 'bow.

Tipper said...

Nice rainbow!!
