Arashiyama area of Kyoto, Japan
It was, at times, a cold miserable day in Kyoto today, but there's something to be said for being in the right place at the right time.

with a bird and a hint of doubleness
The rain the rainbows were created in was being swept in low from the mountains to the left. (Fittingly, this area of Kyoto's name, Arashiyama, means “Tempest Mountain”.) Anyway, lacking altitude, they're not one of those tall half circles like this or this. It was quite a squished curve, but what lacked for in height it made up in intensity.
The bird in this one is a nice touch, and a bit more obvious than the helicopter in this one.
