Morning rainbow over Charleston (to the west)

On the way home from the office this morning around 6AM, I noticed that an inbound rain shower from the west, clear skies to the east and imminent sunrise were about to combine to form a rare spectacle over Charleston. Morning rainbows are very infrequent events, appearing in the western skies - resulting in rare photo composition opportunities, opposite the direction of the usual afternoon/evening rainbow. I chose the ridge behind my house for the event, and had a great view.

Prior to all this, the first rays of sunlight hit these wisps of virga to the west:

Ever notice how morning rainbows seem to be much more softer and diffuse due to the increased overnight moisture at low levels? Certainly can't ask for a better start to the day!
