Genesis 9: 8-17
"And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you... neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood."
"And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud... that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth."
"And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth."
The Most High God, who created the rainbow mentioned in the quoted Bible verses above did form and create within our atmosphere and heavens, a multitude of wonders with nonpareil beauty, which wonders are the subject of this gallery.
Amazing Atmospheric Optics
A wayƒarer must needs remains ever vigilance to be ready for when the nonpareils appear. These pulchritudinous displays of the creation exist but only for a moment in time and to have the opportunity to view them is such a grand treat.
However, for a wayƒarer to be able to capture these displays with a camera requires even more vigilance imbued with endurance and persistence.

In both cinematography and photography, the golden hour is during the times of both dayspring and evenfall; which time is when the light of day is redder and softer compared to when the sun is higher in the sky.
The Wayƒarer is ever ready for that perfect photograph of the nonpareils, especially with the amazing displays of pulchritudinous colors. Too, throughout his ongoing travels, he takes pause for each suntouch and he remains in eager expectation for the next rainbow sighting, keeping ever aware of the manifestation of the needs intrinsic to their formation.
This Nonpareils Gallery is thus for sharing some of the photos taken during the many steps upon the way know as Life′s Journey. Please enjoy.
