It was still not working at 2:42, so I went to dry my hair. Now I am at number 53. And I was sitting right on top of it at 2:30. Kept refreshing and it was not there. Even shut down and started again. Oh, well, wasn't meant to be at the top.

Leedra, that's a great picture even if it's not at the top of the list.

It's reminds of a beautiful rainbow storm on the lake!

It looks like you found the end of the rainbow. Hope it's not too cold where you are.

Good rainbow photograph. I think I photographed more rainbows this year than I ever have and most of them were in the fall.

Great Skywatch! One day we saw a "sunbow", which was just a spot of all the color, not an entire rainbow, but we couldn't get the car stopped in a good position before it had faded too much to take a photo. This shot is great!

Great shot! You even captured a little reflection there in the water.

I see in the comments you had a wait for the link too. I sat from about 2:20 to 2:40 or so and visited a blog I thought would have a sky shot and whoa - I can't understand it some weeks. I think some people must somehow see it before I can. Who knows. Like you said - it wasn't meant to be I suppose.
