Naturally beautiful and complex
Great picture Japie.
I know how difficult it's to get the rainbow.
I think you manage very well.
It's dramatic with the dark sky and the sunny FG.
Very good colours and nice composition.
Great and informative note.
Very well done.
Your are up early like me, my friend.
la scene est dramatiquement belle ! j'adore vraiment l'eclairage que l'on trouve lors des temps orageux comme celui ci.
le seul reproche que je peut faire c'est que tu as mal appliqué la regle des 1/3 2/3....dans ton cas il semble que le ciel soit de proportion 4/5 et la terre seulement de 1/5. ( je ne sait pas si tu vois de quoi je parle... )

Great composition here, Japie.
A not easy to take. An impressive greatness gets free of this image.

Japie, Love this WA landscape view of your countryside & the rainbow nails it! Your write-up is excellent on the physics of rainbows..Reminds me of a similar work-up Gerhard did recently on sunsets. Excellent work!
I think it is a fantastic shot Japie. It's all excellent although a small clockwise rotation would bring the sky level. However, that doesn't stop me from appreciating this wonder. I'm very jealous you got a rainbow, I want one!
Very good picture and very good note.

I love the title, it is just what I thought when I saw Gerhardt´s and Luc´s recent shots with rainbows, and followed the links to learn some more. They are magical, I cant avoid being fascinated each time I see one of them... In this shot you got a very unsual fugue line. I shows a fantastic landscape and colours. Very nice post.

Japie, this is beautifull. Excellent capture. Nice contrast between dark and light. I would have loved to see this in a LP panoramic shot as well. Excellent capture.

Very nice shot. I liked the colors and the defferences of light.
Nice colours in this image. Great capture of the rainbow. Great sky. Looks very angry. Did you find the pot of gold? I never have so it's there for the taking! TFS.

What a wonderfull image ! great composition + colours + light..
Happy new year Japie !
I'm going to set the cat amongst the pidgeons here , so to speak. This picture had the potential for a really great scene, I would have liked to see more of that afternoon, post storm sunshine on more of the countryside while still keeping the Rainbow in view, the top one third of the pic is not needed, the camera should have been aimed lower to include more of the land. Having said this, I think it is still a good pic, but could have been a GREAT photo.
Also the photographers note was very interesting, good job!
