Yesterday was a typical Scottish summer's day.
No, not the wet kind.
It was warm and sunny, but with the odd cloud here and there just to remind you where you were.
After dinner the boys were outside playing with their friends from next door, when one of them came running inside asking for the camera.
'Come quick, mum, you need to see the rainbow sun!'
'There's a rainbow round the sun!'
The clouds had rolled in a but more by now, and they were right. There was a sort of rainbow around the sun. You could still see the sun through the evening clouds, and around that there seemed to be a faint rainbow shining.
I've never seen that before.
There was no rain in the area, like you would normally have with a 'proper' rainbow, but obviously the sun was shining through the vapour in the clouds and the reflection was causing the rainbow.
Does anyone have any better meteorogical knowledge than I do and know what it's proper name is?
Whatever it is called, it was quite beautiful.
Psalm 19 verse 1
