Good morning....
A big thank you to Graham (digital_boi) and Jukka (kuvailija) for their User awards, much appreciated and to everyone for their continued enthusiasm on viewing and commenting on my images.

A break from flowers today....
I was backing up my hard drive yesterday and discovered these images taken on the day of The Scott Kelby Worldwide photographic walk a few weeks ago. It was dreadful weather that morning and on the way home driving through Camps Bay this rainbow appeared. I am uploading three versions, I love them all....
have a great day GrinGrinGrin

Thanks Ryan, yes I was in the right place at the right time...it had started raining in Hout Bay so left the walk early to head home , as I came around the mountain, this view appeared in front of me, luckily there was a place to pull over, did not even have time to put up my tripod .
