Double rainbow wows Nelsonites

Many Kootenay photographers captured the double rainbow that arced over Nelson on Saturday evening at approximately 7:45 p.m.

A stunning double rainbow was seen in Nelson on Saturday and photographed by a number of residents who shared their images with the Star.

Nelsonites were wowed by a particularly stunning double rainbow at approximately 7:45 p.m. last night, and many have shared photographic evidence of the event with the Star.

“Double rainbow all the way!” posted Tammy Everts on Facebook, making reference to the infamous YouTube video. She was joined by Bob Hall, Kamila Karem, Nate Osborne, Elizabeth Simmons, Jeff Nield and Eva Myers-McKimm, who all posted images to social media from various areas around town.

“It was immediately after the final Corazon concert…we were all heading home and BLAM there it was!” posted Myers-McKimm.

Photographer Nate Osborne didn’t have his camera, but used his cell phone instead to shoot the rainbow from outside Uptown Bar & Grill. He captured it arcing over the Nelson Commons construction site.

The Star encourages any additional rainbow photographers to send in their best shots.
