Taken yesterday at the Sunderland Airshow. I'd wanted a good shot of the Red Arrows for a long time - I was thrilled to not only get them in Diamond 9 formation, but flying over a rainbow to boot! Made the occasional rain shower VERY worthwhile! Thank you for the comments on yesterday's upload, I really appreciate them. Have a good day and thanks for looking Smile

I think this is a brilliant shot even without the rainbow.

Wow, that was incredibly lucky, mind you, your shots are always so colourful, the rainbow just makes it one of yours!

Well taken.

Right time, right Place Anna, good smoke trails, a good formation captured at the right time as they are coming into frame, and the rainbow is the icing on the cake

Could very well be a once in a lifetime thing, it's wonderful when mother nature cooperates with tog's and even more wonderful when she throws us a bonus like this. Fantastic capture made even better by the prism of light!

Great shot of the planes, the shadowing gives context to the planes - without a point of reference aerial shots can easily lose their drama. The rainbow is amazing, it is as if it was choreographed just for you.

I have a few shots with the rainbow in them, however they aren't as good as this one.

Some of my shots from yesterday will be appearing over the next few days.
