seagulls under the rainbow

I saw this the other afternoon. It had been raining heavily all day and at the very moment of sunset the sun powered through, turning the sky an impossible warm color. Rainbow time. From my window I could see a complete unbroken rainbow.

I brought my tea to the window to watch. As I sat there a huge group of seagulls flew underneath the rainbow, looking unreal against all the moody darkness. It was amazing.
