The Rainbow at Lancaster, UK
I have never seen so many rainbows in such a short span of time ever before in my life. The week I was at lancaster I saw the Rainbow 4 times and photographed them on three occasions. The other three were even more fleeting but they were still rainbows.
And this is the sort of thing I enjoy, not this fighting over copyright. Sigh, was this beautiful rainbow phase two weeks before only?

Apologies for posting to the same Skywatch episode twice. I am tired, I need a break. I have written a mail to you at Skywatch.

i too had clicked a picture of rainbow using my old analog camera during my first visit to SFO.About a month back i saw a very faint rainbow in Bangalore. by the time i called my wife and son and took my camera out, phoo.. it was india, do not know about mornings but in evening we can see rainbow around 4-5 pm provided it has rained/raining, sun is out a little and some luck. i always check the sky when first few conditions are met to try my luck :)

Eileen, it was such a fleeting one! I got only this one shot and then just parts of it :D Tarun, many thanks for the encouraging words. I met the editor and things have been discussed to my satisfaction and I feel they will get implemented too. Let us see.

Heavenly…Mridula, just to say please keep your fight going, even if u are not liking it…it can actually become a good case study..Well that was a joke, but u are doing a good job by not bending down
