Sky Watch Rainbow over Chambord

 
 
 
Posted by Picasa


When I went to France on Saturday 17th October, we saw this magnificent rainbow over the castle of Chambord(see my entry of 16th July 2009). The problem with rainbows is: you see a perfect round bow but you can only shoot half of it with a point and shoot camera. Believe me the other half was exactly the same.

What fantastic shots, Wil! Chambord looks beautiful, the rainbow is indeed, heavenly! I love the double rainbow in the last shot -- it's pale, but it's there.

Have a great weekend!

So the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow is actually a grainfield!? Makes sense to me...;-)

Lovely colours!
