A rare sighting


Photo Challenge: Rare

I spent a wonderful weekend at the Abbey of Gethsemani on a silent retreat.  On the morning I was to leave my silent cocoon and return to the noisy world, I found the monastery silenced even further under a layer of fog.

After a wordless breakfast I ventured outside with my camera. The grass was heavy with dew and my shoe were soaked as I walked up the hill called Calvary Hill where I found the landscape completely engulfed in a cloud.  The sun came out and right before my eyes an arch started to form in the fog, a rainbow, yet a without the color.  A ghost of a rainbow.

The weekend was an incredible experience and to end it with this rare sighting only made it more holy.
