Our Daily Sykes #8 – Rainbows Somewhere

Driving through or along the edge of summer storms Horace Sykes caught many rainbows ordinarily from his car window or the side of the road.   Typically we do not know where any of these were recorded, only that like most of the hundreds of his surviving Kodachrome slides, they were photographed somewhere in the American West in the 1940s and early 1950s.  Here the rainbow with the pine tree seems to be reaching for paradise and we might too if we could find a way across the water.  The one with the highway I’d chance as somewhere in Eastern Washington.  The “psychedelic” one is pushed from an underexposed slide, again we do not know where.   [Click – sometimes twice – to Enlarge]
