வானவில் / Rainbow

வானவில் / Rainbow
மேகம் வந்து குடைபிடிக்க
சாரல் பின்னணியில்
மின்னல்  மின்னி அடுத்த படம்;  
வானவில்லின் வண்ண புகைப்படம்.

Clouds gather to hold umbrella
in the drizzle background
an image captured at lightening flash;
a colorful photograph of rainbow.
 

Footnote:

Above is a photo I shot at Kodaikanal while come back from Poombarai…  I witnessed more than couple of rainbows within less than 10km radius.  Here is a rainbow captured near Pillar Rocks and never like before, the place was so empty with all shops shut, we stopped the car in the middle of the road and shot this marvelous rainbow which I ever seen such colorful and long visible curve. If you look careful, there’s a trace of another rainbow above the present one.

I do see the trace of the second one Jeevan! What a great capture. Rainbows are what dreams are made of.

Recently we had double rainbows hovering our skies quite often. The local folks believed this sightings as good omen.

Love the picture and those lines "Clouds gather to hold an umbrella" so beautiful :) Like DI says, even I haven't seen a rainbow since many years now :(

I see the double rainbow! It's beautiful!!

Sandhya said...

Beautiful capture! Yes, I noticed a second rainbow!

The beauty of the picture is enhanced because of the trees which are just dark outlines!

I noticed a rainbow just two days back when we were coming back from Madurai. But the scenery was not this beautiful!

This is a wonderful capture of the double rainbow. I like your poem as well.

Betsy Adams said...

Yes, I see the 'double' rainbow. Great photo, Jeevan. I always look for a rainbow after a storm --when the sun comes back out....

Hugs,
Betsy

Wow, twin rainbows! I have myself had the pleasure of seeing them three or four times.

The thamizh kavidai accompanying the picture is exquisite. You should write more of those!
