My first upload from the March Rowardennan meet and one of my first shots of the day.

Absolutely awful weather and everything needed a good wipe down after this shot, but as I was turning the car round this rainbow appeared and it was too good an opportunity to miss.

Processed on my laptop, so colour may be off, will find out when I get back.

Thanks for looking.

Neil

Considering the conditions you've done well to get this Neil. Well composed and the rainbow adds a nice touch.

I fear greatly that this is the thin end of the wedge and EPZ shall shortly be submerged under a great deluge of Rowardennan shots though Sad

Might be a little bright, but a great image from BRC which is still a favourite spot for me. Nice weather image and the 'bow is a wee bonus, well done.

Excellent Neil, Robbie and I obviously left a minute too soon.

We couldn't get the rocks in frame, we were too busy sheltering behind them as it was the only way we could stay upright!! Smile

Good to meet you.

Thanks for the EC Pete, to be honest I would have thought you were sick of the sight of this place by now Wink

Thanks all for your comments and great to meet new and familiar faces over the weekend. Always a special meet even when the weather is dreadful.

Look forward to the next time. Now off to load another image of this place, sorry!

Also, I would like to thank Lizzie and Jake, for their patience with me, while i made them sit in the car for the best part of 2 days. I am not sure that scenario featured in my description of a Rowardennan meet and why she should come along!

Fortunately I think meeting you all made up for it.

Thanks again.

Fantastic! What a scoop of a shot - and a gong to go with it too Smile That composition is really interesting - feels as though it's divided into the shape of the saltire, the way you've positioned the main elements in the pic.

Great to see you plus Lizzie and Jake - they fitted in straight away Smile

Thanks Suzi, Chris, Pete.

Great to see you all at the weekend, but sorry not to have spoken more.

Suzi, I would like to say I spent a long time on the composition, but the reality is this was a grab shot without filters and tripod and the composition came about out of the necessity to fit the rainbow and the cottage in frame and then I positioned the FG rocks as best I could in relation to those.

Pete, so you are the reason he screamed the place down last night at 1.30, or is it teething Wink

Thanks again.

Neil
