I went walking up in the hills above Ystradfellte in South Wales UK yesterday to do some landscape photography.

It's been a long time since I did anything other than wildlife photography and I thoroughly enjoyed myself, I had rain and hail on my way up the mountain and had to shelter my camera from a few showers during the shoot but my perseverance was rewarded when this rainbow suddenly appeared from nowhere.

The wind up there was so strong that it was blowing me over and using a tripod for anything other than very low down shots was too dangerous on the uneven ground so I decided to attempt to hand hold.

This shot is a 5 exposure blend, I set my D3 to automatically bracket for 5 shots at a time at -2, -1, 0, +1 and +2 stops and I merged them in Photomatix Pro and I reckon it did very well considering that these were all hand held in a gale force wind and the +2 exposure was taken at only 1/30th of a second.

No filters were used to make this shot and it's full frame, composed in-camera with no cropping and the rainbow is natural, not photoshopped as someone will no doubt think.

You've captured the moment perfectly Geoff, this image would have been excellent without the rainbow, but with it, it is taken to a new dimension
