Friday night when I left my studio, the moon was rising over the barn. And around it was a rainbow.
My photo, which looks more like a painting, doesn’t capture exactly what I saw. The colors were more intense, less diffused, hugging the moon. But I think my photo captures the wonder I felt when I saw the moon and her rainbow.
When I came out of the house a few minutes later, the sky was cloudless and the rainbow gone. The full moon drowned out the light of the stars around her and appeared alone in the black sky.
