    Awesome. I have tried to outrun more than a couple rainbows, and never quite made it- I'm glad you did, well worth the effort

    Very nice image... I might suggest that you crop out a bit of the bottom portion so that the horizon runs through about the bottom 1/3 of the image rather than divide the image 50/50 with the hirizon running through the center...

    Great capture - you don't see a full rainbow very often. I agree with Richard on the cropping though.

    You don't think it looks odd with the trees in the forground cut in half?

    I liked the original crop as the geometric placement of the rainbow arc and the opposing arc of the hills was so nicely balanced. Beautiful capture, to echo other coments!

    I also like your shadow on the tree

    .. and the roof shape gives some context to it.

    Nice one,

    Beautiful capture! I never did know which end of the rainbow has the pot of gold when it is full arch like this one. Perhaps there are two?

    Many years ago we saw 2 full rainbows and my friend managed to get a shot of me with them going into my head. hehe

    There's actually a trace of the second rainbow in the top left corner (inverted colours). Nice catch.

    Only one pot of gold, and it's always at the other end to where you are
