A Double Rainbow

"Somewhere over the rainbow 
Skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true"

I was on my way to a family photo session when I had a feeling that something was brewing. I could not pinpoint what it was. I knew I was ready, I had my gears prepared and my lenses cleaned. I was prepared for battle, but still I was anxious and nervous. I tried to calm my nerves and hoped that the session would turn out well. I drove out early so I would arrive an hour earlier than the scheduled meeting. 

It was only when I was driving that I realized what had been causing my anxiety. I saw the ominous and billowy dark clouds that hovered above. The stormy clouds stretched as far as my eyes could see. I was worried because the shoot was outdoors and I had in mind a vibrant and sunny session to depict the location, which was a water-park resort; and to capture a family moment which was having a grand time.  

I kept on looking at the sky and hoped that the resort would have a big blue sky instead of a dark gray. My hope was up when I could see the sun at a distance.  I arrived at the resort with nary a sight of the angry sky. But an hour later, it was raining hard. When the rain let up, I saw the sun peeking and we took advantage of it despite the slight drizzle. It was during this time that the family noticed a rainbow. So without any second thoughts, I hurried to take some shots because I knew that it would be gone in a blink of an eye. When I met up with the family on the following day, they told me that it was a double rainbow; I shrugged because I thought to myself I had lost one great opportunity. I didn't expect this - 

One of the rainbows was definitely a little bit off the frame. Obviously, I had not considered it on the composition. Call it luck, call it serendipity, but I almost shouted with glee when I found this shot. Pardon my joy, but this the first time I've seen and captured a photo of a double rainbow. A rainbow is a sign of HOPE, but a double rainbow? Wow!!! I'm excited to know its symbolic meaning. There are various interpretations of this occurrence, but the one that resonates to me the most is this,  

"When double rainbows appear it means that whatever is coming to you has great meaning in your life and that one good thing will lead to another good thing. I really rejoice in your happiness and good fortune. The rainbows are a sign from the cosmic universe that you are about to have something great fall into your lap!" 

(Insert rain dance) Wohoooo let the good things keep on coming!!! Please Universe listen to my plea!
