By MrsS    
Good Evening! Smile

Although I've been to this location many, many times, I've never photographed it, so when the Boss & I went up there on our honeymoon, we stopped off to use the facilities at the Glencoe Ski place, and were amazed to be greeted with this rather spectacular sight upon returning to the car.

A rapid drive of at least 100yds put us close and then it was a case of grabbing what we could, as quickly as we could, before the rainbow disappeared! Smile

So, I plonked down my tripod and clicked, with this being the result! I hope you like it Smile

Thanks for sharing some of your Sunday evening with me - hope yours is wonderful! Smile

You make it sound so simple - but the raindrops make it hell.

Congratulations on becoming Mrs S, may you continue to find happiness and make light together.

Thanks Melanie Smile

We were really lucky, methinks, the rain was not heading towards our lenses! Wink

Cheers folks
