CN under Rainbow, Schoolcraft Michigan

Rain storm had just cleared out. I rolled down the window, to take a picture of the rainbow. Heard the train horn, fiddled quickly with the camera, and got this great shot. Engine smoke clouded the railbow. Minutes afterward, the rainbow had disappeared.
My Girlfriend & myself BOTH rate this as Great - mainly as we both Like Rainbows! That CN paint scheme helps also! If the rainbow disappeared that quickly, then you did a Super job to get the shot & frame it like that! !
I forgot to post it's in Schoolcraft Michigan, but it is now there. Thanks for the comments! I was just happy to see the rainbow(there was actually a second one there just before the train came) but was much more happy to then see a train! Rain came in 5 minutes later and blocked out the sun.
You can see the second rainbow in the top left hand corner, it is a shame that you did not let the loco cover the water tower. Nice catch anyway.
These moments are fleeting and rare.
