The story behind this image

When you take the highly changeable welsh weather into account, then you're never short of photographic opportunities.

Such as this wonderful rainbow, framing the bare, sunlit branches of a large old oak tree.

Photographed from my back yard, it was a scramble to get my camera set up and polarising lens fitted before this fleeting phenomena faded away.

I only managed to get a few frames before the show ended, with this one being the best of the bunch, both in terms of composition and lighting.

The motto is - always have a camera with you, ready to go at a moment's notice!
