A double rainbow in Benson

The monsoon is not done with us yet.  This afternoon a very intense thunderstorm came through Benson, mostly to the northeast of us.  We got about 5 minutes of rain and wind but then the sun came out where we were while it continued to rain elsewhere.  I went outside to grill our dinner and saw one of the brightest rainbows, particularly the blue and purple parts, that I’ve seen in a while.  It was a complete circular rainbow and there was a lighter second rainbow outside of it but unfortunately my camera doesn’t have a wide enough field of view to see it all.  I tried stitching the photos together in a panorama but it came out looking real odd, so here’s the northern (left hand) side of it.


And here’s the southern (right hand) side of it.
