Last Wednesday I took Lucie for a walk in beautiful weather, but that lasted only 10 minutes when a purple sky came sailing in with rain and hail. Before it actually came down there was a spectacular rainbow. I also managed to capture the complete arc by merging two shots in PS, but I like this one better composition wise.
If you like I can upload the complete arc tomorrow morning.

I'm not altogether certain that the complete arc would have more impact, Rende; beside which I imagine Lucie would be diminished in the frame, which I'm sure she would not appreciate!
A real crock-of-gold image, or rather band-of-gold as the narrow strip of light stretches right across the frame. Superb composition.
Regards
Bill

I spotted Lucie almost before the rainbow. Lovely mellow golden tones running right through the frame, this has hints of an Old Master oil painting in style.

I cannot envisage that the complete arc would be better that this fine composition ~ a nice touch to include Lucie.

A great shot of the rainbow and of Lucy, as Bill rightly says Lucy would be lost in the full image. - gary

Beautiful !
I can see a hint of a double bow too.
Very well captured.
The dog in shot makes it extra special.

It looks as though that very alert dog has spotted the crock of gold for you. Wink
