Yesterday morning, just before I walked down from the top of Cortez Hill, I saw an incredible sight. My eyes discerned a very faint rainbow to the west–even though only a few wispy clouds were in the blue sky.
To my surprise, the rainbow arched downward to touch the gleaming cross atop St. Joseph Cathedral. Amazed by the sight, I walked along Beech Street to take photos of bright morning sunlight on the cathedral itself.
The rainbow is so faint in my zoomed, cropped photo that I must confess I changed the contrast and brightness a million different ways and debated whether it even merited a blog post. I’ve decided it does.
Cool San Diego Sights might be a tad philosophical at times, but it intentionally avoids supporting any particular religious (or political) view. Because a sense of wonder and a love for beauty are shared by many. And because there’s enough bitter debate in this old world.
Whatever one might believe, seeing the rainbow above the shining gold was something wonderful to behold.
