Standing in the shelter of a tree I was well positioned to see the storm pass over Chillaton

I just love the way the threatening skies illuminate the greenery here. The double rainbow is stunning, a real decisive moment, perfectly captured. not an easy thing to do, you've certainly got the best out of them. I'm just waiting to see the leprechaun and his pot of gold.
Hugs to you and G, it's getting quite cold here, finally

it's not rainning but it will come in a few seconds!
Dramatic black sky, the landscape is still sunny and the 2 rainbows seem to issue from the lonely tree.
hoping you don't get wet!

You may actually have found two pots of gold hidden behind that tree if you had gone looking after the storm. The rainbows are spectacular, but the light and colours were generally very special in this weather. The dark green of the grass is marvellous.

Hello Leslie, We are neighbours today but with so different shots. marvelous rurtal landscape with the hills and fields, and a slight mists that give very special mystic atmosphere. But of course, double rainbow is the most interesting here. Very clear colours of the primary arch, but secondary also well visible. It seems you could go there and climb on it. stunning sharpness and colours.

This is a truly stunning landscape with a superb viewpoint over the lush green fields of Devon. The rainbow is well placed in the composition and adds a magical touch to the scene along with the purple colour of the sky. I like how the distant landscape is gradually fading into a misty haze. A wonderful photographic opportunity which you've captured superbly.

Double rainbow, rare sight , lucky u to capture it. Overall pastel shades is making it a perfect nature's painting. Beautiful

This is a stunningly beautiful photograph clearly showing not only a lovely double rainbow but they also are seen travelling all the way down to ground level. And, of course, when I look at your exif data I see that this was actually taken in late afternoon at the end of last December too - that explains the amazing warmth of colour in the low sunlight which bathes the distant hills and the foreground grassland.
A very well composed photograph with amazing light and colours, a gorgeous sky, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

for moments like this one it is worthy to endure any rain. The rainbows add so much beauty to this serene rural landscape but I also very much like the warm light which enhances the atmosphere and makes the colors so rich.
Nice and elegant composition with very well planned all the elements.
Thanks for sharing

Hello Les - A super vantage point allows us to see the double rainbow, the stormy sky and the pretty countryside in this well managed and very attractive image.
Where are the pots of gold?

Hello, a very special moment in the countryside with a rainbow so close it looks like we can reach out and touch it. Beautiful color and excellent sharpness.

A wonderful moment ! I love the POV with the tree in the FG making a natural frame. The light is fantastic, the clouds have incredible colours.
marabu61 (10775) 2014-07-07 12:35
Wonderful double rainbow in a gorgeous light here. The deep saturated greens of the grass is equally attractive. Truly a gorgeous picture.
have a great week

I imagine this a scene from a dream. Complete tranquility, a place where you'd want time to pause. Great color and depth of field here and a magical touch from the rainbows. Congrats on this stunning photo.
