Wow, that was incredibly lucky, mind you, your shots are always so colourful, the rainbow just makes it one of yours!

Well taken.

Right time, right Place Anna, good smoke trails, a good formation captured at the right time as they are coming into frame, and the rainbow is the icing on the cake

Wow - now this is just superb. You had a great opportunity, and you nailed it. One of the best 'Red Arrows' shots I have ever seen.

Could very well be a once in a lifetime thing, it's wonderful when mother nature cooperates with tog's and even more wonderful when she throws us a bonus like this. Fantastic capture made even better by the prism of light!

Great shot of the planes, the shadowing gives context to the planes - without a point of reference aerial shots can easily lose their drama. The rainbow is amazing, it is as if it was choreographed just for you.

Lovely shot. Classic Red Arrows formation and beautifully sharp. The rainbow is a real bonus.

Excellent timing, well composed. A definite once in a lifetime shot!!

I have a few shots with the rainbow in them, however they aren't as good as this one.

Some of my shots from yesterday will be appearing over the next few days.

Hi Anna

Bet the team would love to use this for their own promotional uses (One of my friends who attended my 1st wedding eventually became Leader back in the 70s)
