Rainbow Revisited

I found a splendid photo to illustrate a haiku about a rainbow in 2016.  Can I use the same photo for the same purpose w/o repeating myself?  Yes.  The photo is a gift that keeps on giving.
(BTW, the [Menu] button atop the vertical black bar reveals the widgets.)

Carpe Diem #1410 Rainbow (short-haibun)

In response to an earlier CDHK rainbow prompt, I wrote a haiku and later found a splendid photo to illustrate it (and inspire some haibun prose).  Can I use the same photo here w/o repeating myself?  Yes.  The photo is a gift that keeps on giving; it has inspired a new haiku.

    1. Yes, the combination makes it a great photo, by far the best of a rainbow that I have seen.

      The rock fingers in the foreground are actually columns of a termite mound.  (Had some fun with that fact in my earlier post using the photo.)  Have just now revised the photo credit here to mention the mound.
