Re: Best I've seen in years.

Looks like it was actually a double rainbow. Rare to see both ends in one shot well done. Oh and how come your washing was out in the rain anyway?

Re: Best I've seen in years.

Re: Best I've seen in years.

Nice full bow. I rather like the shed and washing as a contrast to one of physics great natural displays.

It was being washed by the rain, and dried when the rain stopped. They're canny up North!

A rainbow is just the earth's lens flare!
A chromatic aberration if you like.
