Poison Glen Rainbows

By Porthos    
The late afternoon sunshine was interrupted by an approaching rain shower coming in of the Atlantic Ocean at the "Poison Glen" in County Donegal giving rise to these two rainbows. The Glen used to be called “Heavenly Glen” by the locals, as they thought of it as their Heaven on Earth. However a mistake by an English cartographer in the translation of the Irish word for Heaven which differs by only one letter from the Irish word for Poison and the name stuck.

Definitely looks more heavenly than poisonous! Outstanding double rainbow capture and the fact that the church sits at the bottom of the rainbow is wonderful.
