This was the scene I saw when I looked out of my bedroom window this morning.
The local farmer checking his stock and unaware of the beautiful double rainbow in the sky.

What a splendid view to start the day. I like the light and shadow contrasts and the play of light across the farmer's field. Sorry, no more little green faces to give out. Have a good weekend.

Nice rural scenery completed with a fantastic rainbow.
Really beautiful light and colours because of the conditions for creating a rainbow. Nice detail is the farmer.

You are lucky to take such a beautiful phenomenon of two rainbows with intense colors and in such a beautiful country scenery, compliments

What a great capture this is. Lovely proportions to your crop, and a very good exposure. The light is wonderful below the still-rainy looking sky.
It reminds of my discovery about 40 years ago that at the end of the rainbow there was a grazing cow on a rural golf-course.

Was this really taken from the window in your home? What a wonderful place you must live!
I love this picture. Not only have you been so fortunate to catch a double rainbow but the lighting is just so lovely, the light and shade on the foreground field, and the brighter light on the distant hill. Lots of lovely detail of the cows and the farmer - him perfectly placed on the line of a shadow - and, of course, the rainbow disappearing right down on that house! Did you go there and fetch a pot of gold?

Gidday dear Gladys
That's one of the positives of grey skies: rainbows. And here you got two for us. I love how the light reflects off the grey sky and illuminates the green fields so well. They're incandescent. And the inclusion of the cows and the people add scale and movement to the image. Congratulations.
