The only advantage to being rained on while in the field...

You get to see a pretty rainbow when the sun comes back out :)

    Well captured david ;)
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :)
    One of the best rainbows I've managed so far - tricky things to capture well.
    Yep, but not as prolific as some other times I've been there.
    Finally managed to get the right lens and polariser on (in the rain no less), and this was the result. It was a race against time as the sun was only poking out through a small gap in the clouds.
    The blue sky didn't last long, rained again about 1/2 hr or so later and pretty much set in then.
    Thanks :)
    If I'd been quicker, it was a full rainbow when we first saw it, but I had the wrong lens on.
    Indeed ;-)
    Thanks Danny - first decent one I've managed.
    Thanks :) It *was* a full rainbow but by the time I was ready, it was like this.
    Yes indeed.
    Thanks Steve.

    Lovely rich colours
    I always seem to see Rainbows when I am driving - not usually a good time to use the camera :-)
  • David de Groot said:
    Same here Kath! And when I do see them with a camera, they're usually only partial ones and not very bright.
