This vivid beauty appeared shortly before sunset yesterday. Aussie touches courtesy of an obliging family of magpies and the gum tree they had just departed from.

Taken just out of Malmsbury, a little under an hour north of Melbourne.

Photography for me is a way of trying to make sense of the world, or at least to slow down and look at things a little more closely.

  • Thanks Kevin! I’m glad I tracked this rainbow down – I saw it earlier in the afternoon, but when I returned with my camera it was gone. Happily parts of it, like this, were still visible down the road.
