A double rainbow over Hyde

On the evening of the day that PCs Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone were gunned down in Mottram a double-rainbow appeared over Hyde between heavy thunderstorms. Some hail was mixed in with the rain and an amount can be seen gathered in the corner of the eaves (mid-bottom of photo).

More views of the rainbow are on Hyde DP Xtra.

There is an online book of remembrance on the Greater Manchester Police website.

For Skywatch Friday.


  1. Beautiful Rainbow, you got the complete arc.

  2. Beautifully captured!

    Come and see my Sky Shots when you get a chance. Your comment will sure add a delight.
    Have a great weekend.

  3. WOW! What a fabulous capture. I have yet to shoot one. Maybe one day. I find it ironic that a double rainbow would appear after two people were filled. Any untimely death is a tragedy. genie

  4. Nicely done. I agree with Genie about the irony in this post.
