180 Rainbow over Mudeford Spit

Well after two weeks back home, it is time to leave these shores again for Ghana in West Africa and to cap a finale this full 180 rainbow off Hengistbury Head, near Christchurch. The image looks out towards the Isle Of Wight and The Solent, with Mudeford Quay middle left. I had waited for this rainbow as there had been a similar one 30 minutes earlier, but my 16mm wasn't wide enough. Despite the high wind and hale stones, I switched to the Tokina 11mm and watched the rain clouds to my left and with the setting sun behind me tried to determine where was most likely to see it. And hey presto - here it came :)
