Been to Bakewell for the weekend with my two best non-photographer friends. While they slept I was off up on the Edges catching the rising sun. Saturday morning I was on Curbar. Met fellow EPZ tog Michael B Hanney up there... we were the only two silly bu**ers putting up with the fierce winds and I really don't know how all my images are not blurred. Anyway.. as I was about to give up and drive the 15 mins back to the holiday cottage, this little (!) beauty appeared and stayed for some time.. breakfast was somewhat delayed!!! Grin

I think I was on the Edge across the road when I captured my last rainbow. Well done for capturing this in such difficult conditions! Wink

That is superb Jeanie, and I thought I got close to the rainbows, you can practically touch those 2. Well done on braving the wind and rain, worth the effort.

Hello Jeanie - lovely to meet you on Saturday, and nice that the rain eased off and the wind dropped to gale foce for long enough for you to get your rainbow. I think I'd already given up by this stage - shows the value of persistance!
