17 Feb Rainbow over Loch Fyne

Source: Maclean Photographic

Landscape photography is mostly about planning to be in the right location and waiting for the right light.  However sometimes you just ‘luck in’ and this happened to me yesterday on the shore of Loch Fyne in the Highlands of Scotland.

We were traveling back up the A82 to Inveraray when it started to rain.  The village has a small harbour so we decided to stop and wait for the rain to clear through.  As I was parking the car the light suddenly changed and a full rainbow appeared above the anchorage, highlighted by the dark rain clouds further up the loch.

I grabbed the X-Pro2 with the Samyang 8mm fisheye to get the full arch rainbow.  I then had time to switch to the 50-140mm to get a closer shot of the rainbow hitting the sailing vessel moored up and then the 18mm f2 to get a different viewpoint before the rain stopped and the rainbow disappeared.

It was a beautiful sight and one that I was in the right place at the right time to capture – pure luck!!
