20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Double Rainbow bringing hope

This was snapped in the spring of 2020. I'd been working in a school and it was shut down due to covid. The whole adult staff was stressed. On my way home one day I snapped this and shared it with the administrative team, telling them it was a sign - this was all going to be ok. Not just a regular rainbow - but a double one - and as we are a Catholic school, and the rainbow is a symbol of God's promise in the bible, we adopted this photo as our school picture for quite a while.
