I think tim has a lens that I haven't seen the results from before - is it a 10-20 mm wide angle?

I can just agree with most of the comments so far. This is extra special. Something like a continuing fairy tale after Lee was on his knees.

I think I can see the flare from the pot o'gold in the middle just beyond the shadow of the mountain.
tim hitchins: soz for the late response to your comment Louis, yes its the sigma 10-20 and i was so glad i had it with me as i wouldn't have got both ends of the rainbow with out it, as Lee set off down the rocks he turned and said "i hope you catch a rainbow" boy did ismile
this is very powerful and mystical,looks like you had some harsh lighting to deal with too.I think you should have bought a lottery ticket that day since these things come in three's!
tim hitchins: i did think about that padraig but was so tired by the time i got home i forgotsad really appreciate your thoughts on thissmile

Wonderful, magical indeed! The most beautiful rainbows I ever have seen were in England and in Ireland -almost every day one, sometimes two an once! I'm always thinking of the rainbow as a religious symbol: God said, “This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it will be for a sign of a covenant between me and the earth." (Gen. 9,12ff.)
tim hitchins: well i am not religious Philine but i appreciate your words for sure, were in England have you traveled too?

I don't remember seeing a whole rainbow in one pic - very, very nice smile
tim hitchins: no neither do i m8smile and i wont say i was lucky as i spent 2 and a half hours up there in the rain and wind i think i deserved itsmilemost appreciated.
Corr blimey how did I miss this one, this is a cracker, that 10mm really helps too.
tim hitchins: evening Nigel yes with out it i would have missed both ends, tried the 24mm but no were near so quickly changed and bingo, could not walk any further back as i was on the top of the rocks so this lens really proved invaluable at this moment in time,most appreciated glad you liked it m8smile
