Somewhere ...over the rainbow

By ColleenA
Good morning....
A big thank you to Graham (digital_boi) and Jukka (kuvailija) for their User awards, much appreciated and to everyone for their continued enthusiasm on viewing and commenting on my images.

A break from flowers today....
I was backing up my hard drive yesterday and discovered these images taken on the day of The Scott Kelby Worldwide photographic walk a few weeks ago. It was dreadful weather that morning and on the way home driving through Camps Bay this rainbow appeared. I am uploading three versions, I love them all....
have a great day GrinGrinGrin

Wow!!!! Colleen how brilliant.
“I shall put my bow into the sky” says the Lord.
He certainly did here and you have captured it with such impact.
Love them all but V3 I take as favourite…...WinkWinkWink

Its dark, frosty and yukky here. You've cheered me up no end, especially as V3 filled my screen, and your rainbow brought a smile to my face. All lovely, but thats the best. GrinGrinGrin Peter.

Great set of images Colleen. My fav is the second - the touch of green and the breaking wave seem to add an extra dimension to what is already a great image.

Freezing fog, hoar frost on the trees and zero visibility in our valley at the moment...oh yes, and minus 5c.
Need these images to cheer us up whilst we sit in front of the log fire and drink a glass of red Jacobsdal...

Thanks Ryan, yes I was in the right place at the right had started raining in Hout Bay so left the walk early to head home , as I came around the mountain, this view appeared in front of me, luckily there was a place to pull over, did not even have time to put up my tripod .

For once I can't decide. All 3 are ridiculously perfect and breathtaking, Colleen. If I hadn't just given you my UA for your lusty couple, it would go to this.
