A shot from the dunes at Camber Sands. Was it windy? Just a bit!!! No long exposures possible as it was a struggle just to keep the tripod upright.
I left the saturation slider alone for the Rainbow colour.

A beautiful rainbow your reward for being on the beach on such a windy day.
Nature's way of wiping out the footprints for another fresh day.

Stunning contrasty light making the marram grass look beautiful. A good lead in through the dunes and the rainbow makes a wonderful distant FP to make the image complete. A beauty!

Beautiful light and movement in the grasses, Derek, and the darker sky (ND grad?) makes n excellent backcloth. The rainbow is a big bonus.

Tonally beautiful, well balanced composition.... and the sand between the grasses- wonderful.
A hint of double rainbow?
