Some of you may recall a picture of the curve in Mohawk, back on June 13, 1999. The original photo (you'll have to scroll down, after you click on this link) had all kinds of power lines, phone lines, cables and poles in it, but through the magic of Photoshop, they all disappeared. So when Brooke Gubacz emailed me this top photo of the rainbow we were treated to a couple evenings ago, I was reminded of that "Mohawk" photo and took on the challenge of removing all those wires and poles, so as to enjoy the beauty of the rainbow without all that clutter. Normally, we don't mess with the photos that appear on the Pasty Cam, but every once in a while we get the urge to "fix" things like this.

The second and third photos are of the same rainbow, just a little further north of where Brooke was standing in Lake Linden. Look close at the second shot and you'll see the faint glow of a second rainbow. Then in the third photo, you get a glimpse of OUR "pot of gold" on the left side of the rainbow. That's the back half of our 1952 Ford truck!

You sure did a good job Mary, I've done some cloning but that photo was a challenge.

There you guys are. Thanks for removing the lines. We have them down here too. The ones we have are up so the birds can play tennis with the hail. Pretty good here today but the clouds are coming in.

Mary, you definately had less in the way than I did. And you got more of the arc.

Actually Brooke, there were lines in the way in my bottom photo too...clotheslines. I removed those too!
