A stunning rainbow is shown from atop Mount Doug in Saanich Friday, June, 11, 2022.

June may have seen a lot of rain, but fortunately this week, it’s also seen a lot of rainbows.

Whether it was a wispy cloud rainbow earlier this week, or the nearly full-circle rainbow snapped around Greater Victoria Friday night, the colourful skies have been a treat in a seemingly never-ending run of cold, wet weather.

Here are some of the best shots sent to CHEK News and posted online.
