Through the Rainbow

By ghibby  
Another shot from Iceland.
This was taken on the Kaldidalur route which is basically a track running into the interior of the country. The views along this route are simply staggering. The amount of rain received ensures the most vibrant rainbows are frequent occurrences. This image is the end of one of those rainbows, the whole arc of the this was visible to us though. The flock of birds flying into the rainbow and their perfect position in the frame was just pure luck and the icing on the cake really!

The shot has not been modified much in camera raw, in fact I had to tame down the intensity of colour as it looked almost unreal in default settings. I have created a vignette to draw the eye into the image more but thatís it as far as processing goes.

Exposure 1/640 sec @ F4.0 ISO 400 and 200mm focal length. Handheld
