Chasing Rainbows

“I was inside my car as the ferry was getting ready to dock, [and] I see people's faces looking in one direction, in awe, toward the sea,” writes Your Shot member Myriam Casper, who was traveling from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island to mainland Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada. “So I grabbed my camera, went to check out what they were looking at, and then saw this perfect double rainbow in front of me.” Casper fought crowds of people on the ferry’s deck to get the shot over Horseshoe Bay. “It’s almost as if we [were] approaching a portal to another planet.”
