What's up with the rainbows?

The Scottish are, by their own admission, obsessed with the weather. They say that it's because the weather changes every ten minutes, but there's a lot of truth behind the joke.

The upshot of all this is, of course, a profusion of rainbows. Almost any time there's sun where you are, it's bound to be raining somewhere nearby. I think we've seen more rainbows in the past three weeks than we've seen in the previous three years.

I already posted about an unexpected rainbow gracing nearby Arthur's Seat. On our recent trip to the Highlands, we averaged (with absolutely no exaggeration whatsoever) one rainbow per day.

Here's a rainbow welcoming us to our B&B in Inverness.

Another kicking off our Skye tour (this one's a little harder to see, but it's a complete arc--pretty cool).And a third, perhaps the most impressive, viewed across the Cromarty Firth on our little loop around the Black Isle.
