rainbow over Dernau in the valley of Ahr River, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. On a very autumnal day if we talk about the weather: some rain in the morning, then a rainbow, then some sun, again some rain...
This panorama of Ahr Valley and Dernau is made from hiking path called Rotweinwanderweg which between Dernau and Altenahr leads through wine hills and offers spectacular views from the area. In October this path is buzzing with tourists who can come by train and then walk their distance with the pleasure of occasional pit-stops (wine selling booths/stands). That often leads to singing and always to great spirits and very pleasant walks.
In November, especially on less than sunny weekends all the booze stands are gone, and so are the tourists. But the vineyards are still there and their colours are even more beautiful.

Another beautiful view from this very beautiful valley! I could tell you exactly where this picture has been taken, because we have been there! On June 5th, last year, we walked along the Ahr, on the other side as seen from here, to Dernau. We had lunch there and walked back to Mayschoss along the Rotweinwanderweg and passed this very point. We were quite tired when we saw this particular view. But there was no rainbow (and no rain)!
