Thanks for all the comments, they are most heartening. this rainbow was bright and I mean BRIGHT, I chose not to capture the whole arc, rather concentrate on the end of it, hoping to find the "pot of gold" alas it was not there!!!! An AC makes it all worthwhile.

Ciao
Tony

This is a wonderful shot. Before I saw where where it was taken, I thought maybe you were in Hawaii. Simply beautiful, just what a rainbow is supposed to look like. You were blessed to see this in person.

About astrophotographer

astrophotographer

I am very keen on astrophotography, atmospherics and nature photography.The passion for photography has been with me for 60 odd years and is still as strong as ever.My first camera was a 127 format given to me when I was 8yrs old, my father showing us how to develop film, in the bathtub, needless to say it became stained much to my mothers annoyance.I guess my profession, Radiography, was a natural way to combine taking pictures with a hobby, most radiographers in my training years had cameras so we all took photos and compared them, always striving to outdo each other.I have always had an interest in Infra-Red photography and we used to play around with IR film in the B&W days, of course we have advanced so much in the digital world of IR I had my camera converted for IR only...it was a bonus as the exposures are as if it was a white light camera. Fast shutter speeds and the resulting images are sometime bad but mostly intriguing. Although I enjoy my work in helping the patient the time has come at the end of 2014 to drop to three days a week, get out on my motorcycle(s) and take a few more photos of the natural world.
