Circular rainbows are quite rare:

I took this picture at my home in the outskirts of Nederland, Colorado at about local solar noon today. It was bright and sunny at the time, although I waited for a passing cloud to mute the sun a bit.

An hour after I took this picture it was raining hard.  I suspect there was rain blowing through the air from the approaching storm, thus the rainbow.

Later in the afternoon, the sun came out again, and this meant I also got to see a "regular" rainbow at about 6:30 pm MDT.

I went for a hike with my friend Chris to Forsythe Falls today.

These falls are in danger of being flooded if the Denver Water proposed expansion of Gross Dam goes through.

It would be a shame to loose this scenic beauty in the name of "progress."
