This rainbow picture was taken in 2008 on the way home from his sons's little league practice at the Rondout Reservoir in Grahamsville, New York. The ONLY day of the year that he decided to put the camera in the van before leaving the house. Wow!! It's a double rainbow with a pot of gold sunken underwater!
