    This is a once in a lifetime photograph...
    i captured 4 rainbows, at once
    This is very rare event,
    seldom are they ever photographed,
    and, it is known as Anticrepuscular rays
    or antisolar rays
    which are similar to crepuscular rays,
    but seen opposite the sun in the sky.
    Anticrepuscular rays are near-parallel,
    but appear to converge at the antisolar point
    because of linear perspective.
    Anticrepuscular rays are most frequently visible
    near sunrise or sunset.
    Crepuscular rays are usually much brighter
    than anticrepuscular rays.
    This is because for crepuscular rays,
    seen on the same side of the sky
    as the sun, the atmospheric light scattering
    and making them visible
    is taking place at small angles (Mie theory).
    Although anticrepuscular rays appear
    to converge onto a point opposite the sun,
    the convergence is actually an illusion.
    The rays are in fact (almost) parallel,
    and their apparent convergence
    is to the vanishing point at infinity.
    This was part of our Great Escape ???
    from far up north, back to Wasaga Beach !!!
    We placed an offering on the ground...
    good wills and good wishes
    for us, and, for all the others we were living behind...
    and, just as we did this,
    one of the rarest occurrences
    on earth unfolded,
    a set of '4' rainbows appeared,
    and, i had a decent canon camera,
    to capture it !!!

    ~So, here we are,
    leaving all the bad behind,
    and, just moving all the good stuff
    forward and transporting all that into
    THE PiVOT of THE NOW !!!
