“This brilliant double rainbow appeared over our three-acre property after a spring storm. I have photographed storms for more than 30 years now, but this is by far the most intense rainbow I have seen. We counted three or four layers of violet and purple.” –James Doughty, Hot Springs, AK, Country February/March 2017

“Back in 2010, a major storm struck the rural area where I live with my husband. It rained for two days straight, and on the third day a nearby creek overflowed its banks. Though we lost our home that day to a flood, we were blessed that no one was hurt.
“I took this picture on the road by our house; whenever I look at it, I remember the blessings that came from many unexpected places. The rainbow is a reminder that even when there is dark all around, love and light will always be with us.” –Lisa Green, Tonto Basin, AZ, Country Extra May 2015
