Been away with work for a couple of days last week, and stopped off at Chesterton Windmill on my way home.

Sat in the car to wait for torrential rain and thunderstorm to clear away, and as the sun came out legged it up here just to catch the end of the rainbow over the windmill.

A few minutes earlier the rainbow was completely over the top, but I had no protection from the rain otherwise I'd I have been out there like a shot!

Thanks folks, and thanks Jeanie, Jeremy and Gavin for your UA's, very much appreciated.

Must admit that in the 40 mins I was waiting for the rain to stop, I was hoping that some nice light would follow on after the rainstorm, but certainly didn't expect the rainbow, but I'm gutted I didn't have a brolly with me, as I would certainly have been out there to get the full rainbow.
