Rainbow Leading to the Trunk

I got a little wet walking around the old rice field pond and then was treated to a rainbow. I didn’t see the second, fainter rainbow until I was developing the images.

The sun came out, I continued on then another shower, another rainbow. The sun nicely lit the trunk that connects the pond to the Ashly River.

From the SC Encyclopedia:  scencyclopedia.org/

Rice trunks are wooden sluices installed in “banks” or dikes of rice fields for irrigation or flood control. They are long, narrow, wooden boxes made of thick planks, and each has a door at each end. Hung on uprights, the swinging doors, called gates, may be raised or lowered to drain or flood a field.
